PCORI Board Approves Proposed Principles on Outcomes Data

The PCORI Board of Governors this week approved the release of proposed “Principles for the Consideration of the Full Range of Outcomes Data” for public comment. These principles describe PCORI’s interpretation of our mandate to capture, as appropriate, the full range of outcomes, including economic and cost data related to the utilization of healthcare services, in our research studies. They will serve as a framework as PCORI develops guidance for future applicants. The approval launched a 60-day public comment period that will continue through November 13.

D&I Certificate Program

Our D&I Graduate Certificate will provide real-world training in D&I science and practice which can be applied across multiple topic areas and settings in health services, clinical and community health, and public health research – it consists of 12 credit hours of courses taught by our faculty who are national leaders in the D&I science field.​

Educational Videos

In an effort lead by investigators at Columbia University, Drs. Russ Glasgow and Amy Huebschmann, along with other national experts, have created short educational videos about important D&I Science topics including sustainability and framework selection.
