PCORI was seeking an experienced Contractor to research and write a clear and concise landscape review in the area of cardiovascular risk factors for populations at risk for experiencing disparities. The focus of the review is to help PCORI determine where gaps exist in the available evidence about best approaches to address cardiovascular disease in these populations. We are interested in identifying unique opportunities for PCORI to fund comparative effectiveness research (CER) to address these gaps. This work may inform the development of a PCORI targeted funding announcement to reduce cardiovascular disease among populations that suffer from disparate health outcomes.
