Peer review of PCORI-funded research helps make sure the report presents complete, balanced, and useful information about the research. It also confirms that the research has followed PCORI’s Methodology Standards. During peer review, experts who were not members of the research team read a draft report of the research. These experts may include a scientist focused on the research topic, a specialist in research methods, a patient or caregiver, and a healthcare professional. Reviewers do not have conflicts of interest with the study.
The peer reviewers point out where the draft report may need revision. For example, they may suggest ways to improve how the research team analyzed its results or reported its conclusions. Learn more about PCORI’s peer review process here.
In response to peer review, the PI made changes including
- Providing more emphasis on 6-month outcomes to mirror the results posted at ClinicalTrials.gov
- Clarifying that because the primary outcomes of the compared interventions did not differ significantly, the apparent differences in the secondary outcomes should be considered exploratory and subject to confirmatory research
- Including a Supplement with additional information about patient and stakeholder engagement, more detailed analyses, and intervention details that did not fit into the main text
