Using Patient-Centered Outcomes Research in Practice: Building Capacity for PA Dissemination

This interactive activity will introduce Patient-Centered Outcomes Research (PCOR) and Comparative Effectiveness Research (CER) and describe tailored strategies for incorporating research findings into clinical decision-making. Examples of relevant Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) funded studies and how they support healthcare providers and patients will be highlighted.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Define patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR) and comparative effectiveness research (CER)
  • Compare and contrast how PCOR and CER research designs differ to traditional research designs
  • Access and assess PCOR and CER relevant to the patients under their care
  • Incorporate PCOR and CER results into patient care activities
