PCORI Announces Second Cycle for CER Funding Announcements

September 17, 2012

On September 17, 2012, PCORI launched the second funding cycle for CER funding announcements. These requests are to support $96 million in comparative clinical effectiveness research in order to give patients and caregivers the ability to make more informed health care decisions.

These funding announcements correspond to four of the five areas outline in the National Priorities for Research and Research Agenda below:

  • Assessment of Prevention, Diagnosis, and Treatment Options - for projects that address critical decisions that patients, their caregivers and clinicians face with too little information.
  • Improving Healthcare Systems- for projects that address critical decisions that face health care systems, the patients and caregivers who rely on them, and the clinicians who work within them.
  • Communication and Dissemination- for projects that address critical elements in the communication and dissemination process among patients, their caregivers and clinicians.
  • Addressing Disparities- for projects that will inform the choice of strategies to eliminate disparities.
