Grants to USA nonprofit and for-profit organizations, government agencies, IHEs, hospitals, healthcare systems, and other public organizations for research support projects that lead to improved healthcare decisions. Interested applicants are required to submit a Letter of Intent prior to applying. Funding is intended to support projects that disseminate knowledge used by patients, clinicians, and communities in decision-making. Funds will also help develop infrastructure, processes, and tools that lay the groundwork for this information dissemination.
The purpose of the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) is to help patients, caregivers, clinicians, policy makers, and other healthcare system stakeholders make better-informed health decisions by “advancing the quality and relevance of evidence about how to prevent, diagnose, treat, monitor, and manage diseases, disorders, and other health conditions” and by promoting the dissemination and uptake of this evidence. PCORI helps people make informed healthcare decisions and improves healthcare delivery and outcomes by producing and promoting high-integrity, evidence-based information that comes from research guided by patients and other stakeholders.
The dissemination* of research findings to targeted end users is an important part of promoting the uptake of these findings into policy and practice. This Engagement Award initiative focuses on supporting organizations that are trusted sources for their patient, professional, or other community, to undertake dissemination activities.
*Dissemination is defined as the intentional, active process of identifying target audiences and tailoring communication strategies to increase awareness and understanding of evidence and to motivate its use in practice, policy, or individual choices.
Award funds are intended to allow organizations and communities to plan for, or actively bring relevant PCORI-funded research findings to end users in ways that will command their attention and interest, encouraging use of this information in their healthcare decision-making. For example, patients may use information to decide on a treatment; community members may use evidence to decide on wellness approaches; clinicians may use research findings to update their recommendations or discussions with patients; or clinic administrators may use evidence to choose among peer-support programs.
The Engagement Award: Dissemination Initiative will give organizations and communities the opportunity to propose one of the following two types of projects:
