In past releases of this Limited PFA, PCORI has allowed applicants to propose projects that focus on either dissemination or implementation of evidence from PCORI-funded studies. This PFA focuses on awarding projects that seek to integrate PCORI evidence into practice by adapting evidence to different contexts and promoting uptake in real-world settings.
PCORI continues to encourage projects at the level of $350,000 in direct costs and two years in length, but will accept applications requesting up to $1,000,000 in direct costs and three years in length with clear and adequate justification. Applicants will indicate the funds requested from PCORI when submitting their Letter of Intent (LOI). PCORI will advise applicants who are invited to submit a full application as to the acceptability of submitting a full application at the budget indicated in their LOI.
- Note that, in general, applications requesting budgets larger than $500,000 in total costs are expected to demonstrably and significantly increase the reach (i.e., the total number of individuals expected to be reached through the proposed implementation project), generalizability (applicability of the intervention across different groups, systems, and settings), uptake (use and adoption among more systems, settings, or sites), and overall impact of the evidence proposed for implementation. Applicants should note that projects proposing budgets of less than $500,000 in total costs are subject to a shorter, more simplified funding approval process.
This Limited PFA seeks to fund implementation projects that incorporate active strategies designed to move comparative clinical effectiveness research (CER) evidence developed with PCORI research funding toward practical use in improving health care and health outcomes. This Limited PFA gives PCORI awardees the opportunity, following the generation of results from their PCORI research award, to propose the next step(s) to move their CER findings into practice, drawing on the knowledge and experience they gained during their PCORI research award.
*Applicants interested in dissemination-focused projects that aim to spread awareness and increase knowledge of PCORI evidence to targeted audiences are encouraged to consider their project’s fit for the Eugene Washington Engagement Award: Dissemination Initiative.
