The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) hosted a webinar that focused on PCORnet and provided real-world examples of partnership and meaningful research and engagement in PCOR within the general internal medicine community. This webinar was conducted in collaboration with the Society of General Internal Medicine (SGIM). Presenters provided an overview of PCORI and PCORnet, and explained PCORnet infrastructure and how it can be utilized by researchers and clinician educators. PCORnet-funded researchers also provided a brief overview of their projects, how it addresses questions of practical interest to patients and clinicians, and how their project is engaging stakeholders such as patients, caregivers, clinicians and others in the research. This was also an opportunity to learn how you can get involved in patient-centered research and our work here at PCORI.

We invited input in the following ways:

  • Send questions or comments in advance of the webinar.
  • Join the conversation on Twitter during the webinar using the #PCORI hashtag.
  • Share comments and questions during the public comment period of the webinar.
