This session provided an overview of PCORI’s investment and stakeholder engagement in post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), an important topic affecting a large number of people living in the U.S. Three projects were highlighted.

Each aim to:

  • Build capacity for research to generate new PTSD-related evidence.
  • Disseminate targeted PTSD Evidence Updates to those who can use the findings.
  • Implement PCORI-funded PTSD findings in large, diverse healthcare systems

Discussions highlighted how each project leverages their patient and stakeholder partners in unique ways to target distinct audiences. Together, these projects exemplify how PCORI can help facilitate the path from research and evidence generation to dissemination and sustainable uptake.

Health Conditions Health Conditions These are the broad terms we use to categorize our funded research studies; specific diseases or conditions are included within the appropriate larger category. Note: not all of our funded projects focus on a single disease or condition; some touch on multiple diseases or conditions, research methods, or broader health system interventions. Such projects won’t be listed by a primary disease/condition and so won’t appear if you use this filter tool to find them. View Glossary
