How Patients Can Participate in Patient Centered Outcomes Research Agenda

October 26, 2012

Dear Sherry,
The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) is providing a free webcast for the plenary sessions of its patient engagement workshop, "Transforming Patient-Centered Research: Building Partnerships and Promising Models," October 27-28. The workshop is designed to help PCORI build a patient-centered research community.

Workshop participants will help PCORI establish procedures for identifying research questions, reviewing research proposals for funding, and ensuring patient participation throughout the research process. It is the first in a series of workshops aimed at bringing PCORI's vision for patient and stakeholder engagement to life.

Because in-person attendance at the workshop is limited and full, following an open application process, PCORI is providing three opportunities for all patients and healthcare community members to be a part of the process and provide input on the workshop's five topics:
  1. Identifying and Selecting Research Questions
  2. Reviewing Research Proposals for Funding
  3. Matching Patients and Stakeholders with Researchers
  4. Disseminating Research to the Community
  5. Evaluating PCORI's Patient and Stakeholder Engagement Programs

To take part, you can:
  • Watch a live webcast of workshop plenary sessions:
    • Saturday, October 27, 8:30 a.m.-11:00 a.m. ET
    • Sunday, October 28, 8:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m. ET
    • Join the conversation on Twitter by following @PCORI and using the #PCORI hashtag during the workshop.
    • Provide feedback to PCORI on the workshop topics by email to Feedback received will be considered as PCORI develops a report on the workshop.

Visit to access the webcast, view the workshop agenda, read more about the workshop topics and get to know our presenters and facilitators. We look forward to your participation and feedback as we build a patient-centered research community.
