At its meeting on July 23, 2019, the Board approved $2.3 million in new funding to support implementation of results from PCORI-funded research.
The first award is for a $1.4 million University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center project seeking to expand use of a decision aid to help patients at high risk for lung cancer make better-informed screening decisions. The second award is for a $860,000 Cincinnati Children’s Hospital project designed to improve care for adolescents with behavioral issues following traumatic brain injury. The Board also received an overview of PCORI’s portfolio of research to improve care for people with multiple sclerosis. Find out more about the meeting here.
