PCOR Seed Grants Program

Center for Patient Care and Outcomes Research (PCOR) requests proposals for Seed Grants

The Center for Patient Care and Outcomes Research (PCOR) was pleased to offer three seed grant opportunities for FY2017.

Three grants, of $30,000 each for one year, were recently awarded with a start date of March 1, 2017. (PDF)

The goal of this funding mechanism is to generate preliminary data needed to seek extramural funding for projects aligned with the mission of PCOR:

To conduct cutting-edge research on the provision of effective and efficient patient care services and on related health outcomes.

Applicants are asked to relate project goals to the research priorities of PCOR:

  1. Examine and improve outcomes that are important to patients, including determining the patient perspective regarding benefits and harms of diagnostic, therapeutic, or health delivery system interventions for disease prevention and chronic care.
  2. Develop novel methods and approaches to measurement and assessment of patient-centered dimensions of outcomes research.
  3. Examine barriers to improving patient-centered outcomes in clinical practice, with a particular goal of ameliorating disparities in adoption of high-quality practices.

Principal Investigators must hold full-time or full-professional effort status at the Medical College of Wisconsin and have demonstrated an area of expertise that will allow them to do the proposed work; PIs and key personnel must be, or become, members of PCOR.
