The intent of this limited PFA is to move evidence developed with PCORI research funding toward practical use in improving health care and health outcomes. PCORI will fund projects that aim to implement patient-centered clinical comparative effectiveness research (CER) results obtained from PCORI-funded studies in decision-making settings, and, in selected cases, projects that focus on the dissemination of these findings. This limited PFA gives PCORI investigators the opportunity—following the generation of results from their PCORI-funded research award—to propose the next step(s) for making their research results more useful, actionable, accessible, and available to targeted end-users of these findings.
