The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) hosted a webinar on the Methodology Standards and Methodology Report. Good methods are essential to producing high quality PCOR, and the PCORI Methodology Standards were created to ensure that PCORI research is highly rigorous. This webinar included an overview of the development of the standards, key elements of the Methodology Report, and highlighted the experience of applying the standards to a PCORI funded project. After the webinar, the attendees understood the role that standards play in the PCORI research.
