Guided by patients, caregivers, and other stakeholders, PCORI funds research designed to provide patients, their families, and clinicians with the information needed to make better-informed choices about their healthcare options.

The briefing aimed to raise awareness around the need for patient-centered evidence to help patients, caregivers, and clinicians make informed decisions about how best to treat prostate cancer. In addition, it aimed to provide advocates and experts an opportunity to discuss the value of evidence-based patient-centered medicine.
