Part two of the three-part Peer-Review Workshop series was an interactive session specifically for patients, caregivers, and family members. The peer-review team, a PCORI principal investigator, an associate editor, and a current patient peer reviewer spoke about the value of patient input on PCORI-funded studies, the commitment involved in becoming a reviewer, and the overall impact of the patient’s voice on finalized reports.
