Advisory Panel on Assessment of Prevention, Diagnosis, and Treatment Options - Research Prioritization Kickoff Meeting
On April 19 and 20, 2013, we convened the Advisory Panel on Assessment of Prevention, Diagnosis, and Treatment Options for training and initial discussions about research prioritization. The panel reviewed 20 research topics against PCORI’s research criteria and selected four topics for further consideration:
- Bipolar disorder—Compare the effectiveness of medication regimens for adolescents and young adults with bipolar disorder (Topic 2).
- Ductal carcinoma in situ—Compare the effectiveness of management strategies for ductal carcinoma in situ among women who had this diagnosis made after undergoing screening mammography (Topic 7).
- Migraine headache—Compare the effectiveness of treatment strategies for adults with episodic and chronic migraine headaches (Topic 17).
- Osteoarthritis—Compare the effectiveness of alternative strategies for stabilizing symptoms in people with osteoarthritis (Topic 20).
The selection of topics was supported by a review of research prioritization briefs. Below is a full list of these briefs. (Download the full set of briefs)
