PCORI's Role in Dissemination of Patient-Centered Outcomes Research: Not "From the Ground Up"

Slide 4. PCORI Dissemination Assumptions

PCORI Dissemination Assumptions

  • "Success" for PCORI and AHRQ = impact on practice and patient outcomes.
  • PCORI will disseminate results of PCORI-funded and conducted research and PCORI will also fund research on dissemination, but will complement and supplement what the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality/National Institutes of Health (AHRQ/NIH) are doing, not duplicate efforts.
  • PCORI has unique opportunities—and legislative requirements.
  • Dissemination is essential and requires investment, which could occur in multiple ways:
    • Encourage / require "dissemination accelerating components" in all PFAs.
    • Provide rapid follow-on funding for dissemination for selected studies.
