Fouza Yusuf participates in PCORI pilot to prioritize specific research questions
Jan. 23, 2013 College News - Fouza Yusuf, Program Coordinator for the Center for Clinical Effectiveness Research (CCER), was one of 35 participants selected by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) to test a pilot process to prioritize specific research questions.
During the months of October and November 2012, Fouza served as vice-chair for one of the two groups testing the different prioritization software and then presented feedback and her experiences as part of a panel at a stakeholder engagement workshop in Washington, D.C. in December. In the next few months, PCORI plans to finalize and implement this process for use by their Advisory Panels in prioritizing research questions solicited from the public.
PCORI is an independent, non-profit organization authorized by Congress with a mission to fund research that will provide patients, their caregivers and clinicians with the evidence-based information needed to make better-informed health care decisions.
