The PCORI blog is intended to serve as a platform for discussion by a broad range of audiences of issues in patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR) and ways to help patients, caregivers, and clinicians make better-informed health and healthcare decisions. The views expressed in blog postings, including comments, are those of the authors and not necessarily those of PCORI, its Board of Governors, or its committees, unless otherwise indicated.
The blog's editor is JoAnn Sperber, PCORI’s Associate Director of Content Development. She can be reached at [email protected].
