To date, we've awarded nearly $46 million to support 231 projects through the Engagement Awards program.
In the past month, we approved roughly $980,000 in new awards through our Eugene Washington PCORI Engagement Awards program. These funds will support projects including:
- University of San Francisco’s project to develop partnerships between UCSF researchers and San Francisco County women who have experienced maternal depression to develop infrastructure that will support PCOR to promote maternal, family, and community wellbeing.
- A University of Colorado – Denver project to develop a community-based research network of refugees and refugee community stakeholders in the Denver metro area aimed at increasing the capacity of refugees and refugee community stakeholders to participate as partners in PCOR.
- The University of Washington’s initiative to develop a network of regional and national stakeholder communities and stakeholder-identified research priorities regarding community-level interventions as determinants of health, well-being and quality of life for children and youth with intellectual and developmental disabilities and families.
- National Kidney Foundation’s Home Dialysis Controversies’ Conference Series will foster collaboration among a multi-stakeholder group of patients, clinicians, caregivers, researchers, health payers, and healthcare industry representatives to facilitate the development of research designs that aim to measure home dialysis quality as well as interventions to address the barriers to maintaining dialysis treatment at home.
