To date, we have awarded approximately $125.5 million to support 612 projects through the Engagement Awards program.
Recently, we approved about $1.3 million in new awards to support projects including:
- An initiative led by The Curators of the University of Missouri on Behalf of the University of Missouri-St. Louis to build capacity for engaging youth and young adults (YYA) in developing mental health PCOR/CER priorities that are relevant to YYA and stakeholders.
- A project led by the Center for Health Policy Development/National Academy for State Health Policy (NASHP), in partnership with Robyn Liu, MD, MPH, to connect states to available PCORI research and highlight patient engagement insights, thereby enabling access to resources needed to assess, adapt, and sustain their telehealth policies.
- A convening led by the National Health Care for the Homeless Council to engage stakeholders from 25 geographically diverse medical respite care (MRC) programs serving people experiencing homelessness (PEH) in order to focus on PCOR and MRC and develop resources that assist communities in establishing MRC programs.
- An undertaking led by Prairie View A&M University to establish the infrastructure within Prairie View A&M University College of Nursing (PVAMU CON) in Houston, Texas, to provide a three-day intensive course to inform advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) of PCORI-funded CER findings, provide training in implementation, and post-training support for uptake of the treatments in patient care.
- A project led by the National Alliance of Healthcare Purchaser Coalitions to educate and inform healthcare benefits professionals of relevant PCORI-funded research findings, help them shift their current practices and those of their consultants toward a stronger evidence-based approach in their healthcare decision making, and track how this dissemination approach is impacting the health of their workforces regarding patient-centered outcomes.
