PCOR is a broad category of research with an emphasis on answering questions important to patients and other healthcare stakeholders. Some, but not all, PCOR is also CER. PCORI does fund patient-centered CER although not all CER is patient-centered. PCORI’s definition of patient-centered is research that addresses questions important to patients and other healthcare stakeholders, and studies outcomes meaningful to patients and other stakeholders.
How does PCOR relate to comparative effectiveness research (CER) and does PCORI fund CER?
