PCORI Board Sets Listening/Webinar Mode
Only on Revised Research Priorities

It looks like The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) Board of Governors will hold a special teleconference/webinar in watch-only mode via teleconference/webinar on Wednesday, April 25, 2012.

The Board will discuss and vote on PCORI’s revised National Priorities for Research and Research Agenda as well as review proposed Pilot Project funding awards.

What:     PCORI Board of Governors Meeting Teleconference
When:    Wednesday, April 25, 2012
2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. ET
Where:   Teleconference & Webinar

No public comment period is scheduled. Once you register,  you will receive detailed instructions for joining online and/or by telephone.

A meeting agenda will be circulated and posted on our website prior to the teleconference/webinar.

It’s great to see this move forward, but I have to say it is disappointing that the meeting will have no open discussion.

I hope that on April 25th, the PCORI Board makes it transparent that they truly considered the patient point of view on top-priority patient-centered outcomes research. It would also be most welcome if all remote participants had in their hands, in advance of the meeting relevant materials to reference, so we are truly on the same page as the PCORI Board of Governors.

More details are expected next week, the week of April 17th, when journals address comparative effectiveness research, one of the key strategies for doing patient-centered outcomes research.
