Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute

The Alliance for Aging Research supports the work of Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI). Its goal is to “fund research that can help patients and those who care for them make better-informed decisions about the healthcare choices they face every day, guided by those who will use that information.”

In 2017, the Alliance received a PCORI Eugene Washington Engagement Award to develop a  Senior Patient and Family Caregiver Network (SP&FCN). This network addresses the significant under representation of older adults and their family caregivers in patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR) and comparative effectiveness research (CER).
