Implementation of Effective Shared Decision Making Approaches in Practice Settings
Posted by: Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) Post date: May 1, 2019 Due date: August 30, 2019 by 5:00pm ET
This PFA is intended to promote the targeted implementation and systematic uptake of shared decision making (SDM) in healthcare settings, in line with PCORI’s goal of supporting patients in making informed decisions about their care. For this PFA, PCORI defines an SDM strategy as an intervention or approach that draws on and presents evidence to inform patients of available treatment options and their risks and benefits, and either engages patients in a decision-making process with their clinician or promotes their ability to engage in such a process.
In past releases of this Shared Decision Making PFA, applicants were required to implement PCORI results available at the time of the application due date. Starting Cycle 2 2019, applicants will be required to implement PCORI results available at the time of the Letter of Intent (LOI) due date. Specifically, (1) a draft final research report pertaining to the original PCORI-funded research award must have been accepted for entry in the peer-review process by PCORI, or (2) a manuscript reporting the PCORI results being proposed for implementation must have been formally accepted for publication by a peer-reviewed scientific journal before the LOI due date.
