The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) has listed community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) as a PCORI Priority in its Cycle 3 2017 Pragmatic Clinical Studies Funding Announcement. All interested IDSA members are encouraged to apply.
Since 2015, IDSA has advocated for PCORI to allocate funding for comparative research in the treatment of CAP. PCORI is seeking proposals for studies that address critical healthcare choices faced by patients, their caregivers, clinicians, or delivery systems in this area. First consideration will be given to applications that directly address one or more of several questions related to CAP, which can be found in the announcement.
Proposed studies must involve broadly representative patient populations and be large enough to provide precise estimates of hypothesized effectiveness differences and to support evaluation of potential differences in treatment effectiveness in patient subgroups. The maximum project period is five years.
The application deadline is February 6, 2018. Awards will be announced on August 21, 2018.
