In addition to the following resources, the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) also provides a number of resources for conducting PCORI, including the PCORI Methodology Report.

ENACT Online Part I Course As part of an AHRQ Funded Program, this course was created to educate participants on how to write a successful concept proposal
ENACT Online Part II Course As part of an AHRQ Funded Program, this course was created to educate participants on how to write a full contract proposal. The link to the publicly available course will be available soon
Decision Tool The Decision Tool for Causal Inference and Observational Data Analysis Methods in Comparative Effectiveness Research (DECODE CER) is the product of a PCORI-funded statistical methods contract to guide researchers on optimal use of observational CER modeling strategies
PCORI PCORI is an organization that was founded in order to fund research that can help people make better informed decisions about the healthcare choices they face every day
AHRQ CER Program Comparative effectiveness research was created so that patients can be provided with evidence on the effectiveness, benefits and harms of different treatment options so they can make the best health-care decisions
Institute for Clinical Research Education (ICRE) ICRE is the premier enterprise for clinical and translational research education at the University of Pittsburgh and supports the CTSI Education, Training, and Career Development activities
Comparative Effectiveness Resource Core (CERC) The CERC was specifically established within the CTSI to support Pitt researchers by offering training in CER and PCOR methods, providing guidance on promoting stakeholder involvement, assisting researchers in obtaining external funding, and fostering collaborations between researchers and established CER and PCOR methodologists
