BUILDING COMMUNITY CAPACITY TO DISSEMINATE PCORI INFORMATION AND ENHANCE PCORI INITIATIVES

Principal investigator

Clinical Associate Professor of Epidemiology

Description

Using a patient-centered approach, this community engagement project seeks to build the capacity of local Community-based Organizations (CBOs) to help patients and potential patients get more involved in obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) screening and treatment initiatives, and create a guide that researchers can use to successfully partner with local CBOs and enhance patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR) initiatives. Leveraging community infrastructures, it will bring community leaders and stakeholders, potential and active patients, and their social support networks together with researchers to establish trust and investment in PCORI, and ensure that the voices of some of the most hard-to-reach and underrepresented OSA patients in New York City become part of PCORI's local OSA dialogue and larger national conversation.
