To date, we have awarded approximately $159 million to support 773 projects advancing patient-centered outcomes research/comparative clinical effectiveness research (PCOR/CER) through the Eugene Washington PCORI Engagement Award program, including:

  • A convening led by Mental Health America to bring together a large and diverse group of stakeholders centering the perspectives of college students with psychiatric disabilities and develop a multi-stakeholder campus mental health intervention priority report with PCOR/CER recommendations including outcomes measurement, target issues and patient-preferred interventions
  • An initiative led by Duke University School of Medicine to enhance engagement of girls and women living with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder in PCOR/CER to improve health equity and reduce gender-based disparities in diagnosis, treatment and outcomes for this at-risk population
  • A project led by Food Allergy Research & Education to understand the unmet needs in food allergy research and ways to increase the capacity of Black food allergy patients from low-income, systematically disenfranchised areas like Wards 7 and 8 in Washington, DC to participate in PCOR/CER
  • An undertaking led by University of Washington Bothell to engage with the Black and Latino communities in Seattle to learn about behavioral health issues of concern and prioritize a research agenda; connect with existing networks of community stakeholders, providers and researchers to co-learn about PCOR/CER; and build partnerships with those that work with these populations
  • An endeavor led by Collective Insight to increase the willingness and readiness of researchers to implement PCOR/CER with older adults and their caregivers, including those from underserved populations
