Ideally, patient and stakeholder partners will be involved in developing the proposal, shaping the research question, selecting outcome measures, and conceptualizing the study design. However, PCORI recognizes that some applicants may not have partnerships in place at the time of submission. If this is the case, applicants should describe what efforts were made to ensure the proposed study is patient-centered. PCORI strongly discourages applicants from merely approaching potential partners and advocacy organizations for endorsement without also seeking input. Please refer to the appropriate PFA for specific engagement requirements.
