Okay, Network faithful, here is a great opportunity for you. The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute announced it's looking to fill its first four advisory panels to help develop a research agenda. The group is looking to establish panels on disparities, improving health care systems, patient engagement and assessment of prevention, diagnosis and treatment options.
Here is the description from their website:
One of the ways PCORI seeks to bring voices from across the healthcare community into our work is through PCORI Advisory Panels. These groups, made up of patients, caregivers, clinicians, researchers, other healthcare stakeholders and the general public, will help us to identify research priorities and refine our research project agenda.
Our authorizing legislation allows us to appoint permanent or ad hoc advisory panels to assist our staff, Board of Governors and Methodology Committee in:
- Modeling robust patient and stakeholder engagement efforts.
- Refining and prioritizing specific research questions.
- Providing other scientific or technical expertise.
- Providing input on other questions that may arise relevant to the Institute’s mission and work.
PCORI Advisory Panels do not serve in an official decision-making capacity, but their recommendations and advice will be taken into consideration by our staff, Board and Methodology Committee.
