Early registration is now open for the PCORI Annual Meeting, which will take place Oct. 31- Nov. 2nd in Arlington, Va. More than 1,000 members of the health care community will gather for this two-and-a-half day event which will include updates on how scientists, patients, caregivers, clinicians, payers, and others are working together to make health research more useful and relevant.
The event theme this year, “Delivering Results, Informing Choices,” sets the tone for what promises to be an exciting conference. Hear about the results from PCORI’s earliest-funded comparative clinical effectiveness (CER) studies and efforts to promote the use of those important findings in practice. Be part of the conversation about key trends in patient-centered outcomes research and connect with colleagues to share ideas for future research opportunities that will help patients and those who care for them make better-informed healthcare decisions. Register online before September 15th to get the early registration rate.
