Workshop held at the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA), January 8, 2015.
The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) is an independent, nonprofit organization created by the Affordable Care Act in March 2010 that funds comparative effective research to answer important real life questions. In 2014, the PCORI Advisory Panel on Assessment of Prevention, Diagnosis, and Treatment Options prioritized 14 new research topics, including Treatment Options for Substance Abuse.
The National Drug Abuse Treatment Clinical Trials Network (CTN) sponsored this workshop for all NIDA investigators interested in learning how to apply for PCORI funding. It was also broadcast via webinar to remote participants. The workshop was co-chaired by Betty Tai, Director, CCTN and Redonna Chandler, Acting Director, DESPR. The goal of the workshop was to provide technical assistance to NIDA grantees regarding PCORI funding opportunities, given that PCORI identified treatment options for opioid substance abuse as a high-priority research topic, and that their funding process is different from the NIH process. The agenda included a presentation from PCORI staff summarizing PCORI’s objectives, priorities, available funding, and application process. NIDA researchers discussed the state of the science regarding opioid substance abuse and presented experiences with the PCORI funding/review process.
The CTN has established a PCORI Special Interest Group, given the CTN impressive group of investigators, providers, and clinical sites and a long history of successful SUD research. This PCORI SIG will provide a venue for discussing PCORI funding opportunities and potential projects that could be conducted using CTN as a platform. The PCORI SIG is co-chaired by Carmen Rosa and Theresa Winhusen and will meet monthly via teleconference.
