To date, we've awarded about $100.5 million to support 515 projects through the Engagement Awards program.
Recently, we approved about $1.7 million in new awards to support projects including:
- A project led by the Institute for Patient- and Family-Centered Care (IPFCC), in partnership with the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA), to plan and facilitate a convening that will result in a better understanding of peer priorities for comparative effectiveness research (CER) on mood disorders, identification of strengths and potential gaps in currently funded CER, and future research strongly informed by peers.
- An initiative led by University of Washington to hold community convenings in two new US regions (Southwest and Midwest) to focus on inclusive engagement of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (ID/DD) in research; research priorities and meaningful outcomes around the topic of community participation as a determinant of health and well-being; and moving the existing national stakeholder network further toward PCOR partnerships.
- A two-day convening led by Hunter College to bring stakeholders from five community health centers (CHCs) to create a partnership among LGBTQIA+ health leaders and a shared agenda and set of priorities for PCOR/CER that is relevant, responsive, and useful to these organizations and their patients.
- An undertaking led by The Afiya Center which includes adopting and adapting the PCORI-funded tool, Inspiring Change Manual, to train patient and community stakeholders in community-based participatory research (CBPR) methods and strengthening and expanding current stakeholder engagement in the North Texas geographic area regarding reducing maternal mortality for black women. Outcomes of this project include an adapted version of the Inspiring Change Manual for a new patient population and a roadmap for a CBPR agenda.
- An initiative led by Worry Free Community to accelerate the uptake and adoption of PCOR/CER for community health outcome improvement in Chicagoland-area mosques by capitalizing on the resources created by its PCORI-funded EMARCH project and others relevant to the faith-based community contexts (e.g. Pastors4PCOR).
*Upcoming convenings are planned to occur virtually due to COVID-19.
