The Center would like to alert you to a PCORI funding announcement addressing disparities ~
The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) invites applications for clinical comparative effectiveness research (CER) designed to evaluate and compare interventions intended to reduce or eliminate disparities in health and health care. Patients, caregivers, and clinicians often lack the appropriate evidence required to make the best choices regarding prevention, screening, diagnosis, monitoring, or treatment. Applications to the Addressing Disparities Program should focus on overcoming barriers that may disproportionately affect health outcomes or focus on identifying best practices for reducing disparities in target populations (racial and ethnic minority groups; low-income groups; residents of rural areas; individuals with special healthcare needs, including individuals with disabilities; patients with low health literacy/numeracy and/or limited English proficiency; and lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender [LGBT] persons).
Full details about the opportunity are available online.
The maximum budget for this announcement is $1.5 million total direct costs. The maximum period of performance is three years. This program does not consider exceptions to the budget and period of performance limits. Total funds are available up to $8 million.
