Projects should include outcomes that patients and the public care about, while being anchored in PCOR methods, which aims to help people and their caregivers make informed health care decisions, allowing their voices to be heard in assessing the value of health care options. PCOR explicitly recognizes the contribution of a number of types of research, including evidence synthesis, primary data generation, and implementation and dissemination research – all informed directly by the end user of the research. Each research project should involve stakeholders, including patients and community members, as partners from conceptualization through dissemination. Additionally, projects should entail some element of CER and lead the applicant to the next step in their career. Specific plans for disseminating the findings and incorporating them into health care delivery and decision-making should be described in the application.
Yale-CORE and its numerous partners have experience in PCOR and CER studies such as randomized trials, prospective longitudinal cohort studies, retrospective longitudinal studies, meta-analyses and systematic review methodologies, decision science modeling and analysis, implementation science studies, hybrid studies with registries and administrative data, and quality measure development. Yale-CORE has a breadth of relationships and ongoing projects that will provide opportunities for mentorship and research.
