Opportunity Description:

The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) intends to release a Targeted PCORI Funding Announcement (Targeted PFA) on January 11, 2022, seeking to fund high-quality, comparative clinical effectiveness research (CER) projects that focus on the prevention, early identification, and treatment of delirium in older adults. This preannouncement is provided to allow potential applicants additional time to identify collaborators; obtain stakeholder input on potential studies; and develop responsive, high-quality proposals.

The proposed budget for studies under this initiative may be up to $5 million in direct costs for small studies and $10 million in direct costs for large studies, as appropriate. Applications for the large studies are required to include an implementation aim in addition to comparing the effectiveness of interventions. To that end, to be considered responsive, PCORI encourages applicants applying for the large studies to consider study designs such as hybrid type 1, hybrid type 2, or mixed method approaches.

In particular, applications focused on the needs of underserved, underrepresented, or historically excluded populations within hospital and long-term care settings are encouraged. Applicants will be asked to propose well-justified and validated clinically meaningful outcomes that are considered important by patients and/or their caregivers and are readily measurable within the proposed study period, which should not exceed five years.
