Working with community, clinical, and academic partners in 38 states and all six US Pacific jurisdictions, the project team will implement the COVID-19 and Other Infectious Diseases Engagement Initiative (COIDEI) to facilitate an inclusive dialogue with diverse stakeholders to set and address COID research priorities, develop stakeholders’ capacity to conduct PCOR/CER, and disseminate current knowledge, research, and best practices related to COID.
- An undertaking led by Wayne State University, in partnership with Brilliant Detroit, to build community capacity for COVID-19 PCOR/CER and a model for community-based dissemination and implementation of evidence-based health information.
- A project led by the Institute for Patient and Family Centered Care, in partnership with Smart from the Start, to learn directly from members of underserved communities about challenges created by COVID-19 that must be addressed to facilitate partnership in PCOR/CER and develop tools and resources that provide solutions.
