Every day, heart disease and stroke patients and caregivers must make health care decisions. They may have to choose between two or more options for preventing, diagnosing or treating their conditions. Or, they might need to decide whether or not a treatment is right for them. For these situations, the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) was created. PCORI funds research to help patients make the best decisions about their health care. Right now, PCORI is seeking information from patients and caregivers about the health care questions or decisions they may be facing to help the organization shape and refine their research agenda. Medical professionals and researchers who have questions about improving health care delivery, addressing disparities in health care, or improving the communication of research findings are also invited to participate.
Take a few minutes to submit your research questions and become part of PCORI's efforts to change the research process by making the patient's voice central to that work today!
PCORI is an independent, non-profit organization authorized by Congress. Learn more at www.pcori.org.
Just asked them to explore the use of traditional and non traditional methods of treatment for CVD and how they may compliment each other.
A great suggestion, Mark! Thanks for completing the survey. It is very important to have heart disease and stroke patient-advocates speaking up as PCORI continues its work.
