To date, we've awarded about $48.2 million to support 241 projects through the Eugene Washington PCORI Engagement Awards program.
In the past month, we approved about $700,000 in new awards to support projects including:
- The Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network’s effort to develop a bladder cancer research training program (PEER—Patient Empowerment in Engagement Research) that includes online training and an in-person workshop to train patients to serve as mentors for future cohorts, creating a sustainable method for continued patient education and engagement in research.
- An Arthritis Foundation project to conduct a series of nationwide listening sessions to explore challenges and barriers that arthritis patients, caregivers, and clinicians face in treating arthritis and gather insight into the ways in which the arthritis community wants to participate and receive PCOR findings.
- An initiative led by the Metastasis Research Society to engage key stakeholders in cancer metastasis research and treatment to strengthen and PCOR in this area via two conferences at distinguished cancer centers with supplemental educational webinars preceding each conference.
