|This project's final research report is expected to be available by March 2018.|
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, DeVoe made changes including
- Adding more description of the patient and stakeholder engagement process
- Explaining more fully how the staff at the study sites used the intervention
- Describing how the groups of study participants that did or didn’t receive the intervention were similar enough that they could be compared in this research
