The Engagement Awards initiative will consist of three award categories:
- Knowledge Awards, which will fund activities such as background papers, landscape reviews, and development of mechanisms to share PCOR results.
- Training and Development Awards, which will cultivate a larger, better trained and research-ready PCOR community through activities such as ones that will link interested patients, stakeholders and researchers to build research partnerships. The Pipeline to Proposal Awards are the first in this category.
- Implementation Awards, which will support activities such as disseminating information about and encouraging adoption of PCORI funded research results as well as best practices for engaging patients and other stakeholders in PCOR.
