Letter of Intent (LOI) due date:  July 24, 2018
Due Date:  October 10, 2018

This advance notice encourages applicants to submit a letter of intent in response to a new Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) Funding Announcement (PFA) on Implementation of Effective Shared Decision Making Approaches in Practice Settings.  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. To be eligible for this PFA, applicants may either a) propose to implement a shared decision making strategy that was formally tested and demonstrated to be effective in the context of a PCORI research award, or b) propose an implementation project that will incorporate new PCORI CER evidence into an existing, tested shared decision making strategy, and then implement the updated shared decision making strategy.
