To date, we've awarded about $109.4 million to support 532 projects through the Engagement Awards program.
Recently, we approved about $5.7 million in new awards to support projects including:
- An undertaking led by Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine to co-create with stakeholders an equity-focused, human-centered design process to understand the needs and values of underrepresented stakeholders around PCOR/CER related to COVID-19 and consequently produce an equity-centered design thinking toolkit that may be used by these communities to improve engagement in research prioritization.
- A project led by Temple University of the Commonwealth System of Higher Education to incorporate perspectives of African Americans and female patients in developing research priorities and an agenda focused on the cardiovascular disease complications related to COVID-19.
- An initiative led by Behavior Change Institute to build upon existing local and national relationships with families, providers, researchers, and insurers to create a stakeholder collaborative to build local and large-scale capacity for PCOR/CER for ASD treatment.
- A project led by The Regents of the University of California, San Francisco in which the Black Health Initiative will build upon the PCORI-funded ASPIRE program to address COVID-19 and develop stakeholder partnerships and engaged research focused on the Black population in San Francisco.
- An initiative led by Brandeis University to leverage the Maternal Mental Health Research Collaborative (MMHRC) of mothers with mental illness and substance use, providers, and researchers to build out the infrastructure and tools to support virtual community engagement, research implementation, and knowledge dissemination.
- An undertaking led by University of Miami to enhance an existing CHW PCOR training program with an additional module to train CHWs in virtual and distanced methods of PCOR engagement. The training will empower CHWs on use of telehealth and other mobile data collection tools and help CHWs assist patients in PCOR opportunities during and after the COVID-19 crisis.
