Assessing Awareness and Interest in Patient-Centered Comparative Effectiveness Research

Key AIR Staff: Tom Workman, Ph.D.

AIR developed and conducted national surveys of patients, caregivers, clinicians, and researchers for PCORI to measure changes in these stakeholders’ awareness and interest in becoming engaged in patient-centered comparative effectiveness research (CER). AIR’s findings will help guide PCORI’s efforts to expand the creation and use of patient-centered CER.

AIR designed, developed, and fielded three survey instruments for three distinct populations:  patients, providers, and researchers.  In developing the surveys, AIR addressed the following objectives:

  • To understand patient, health care provider, and researcher attitudes toward and perceptions of CER.
  • To understand patient, health care provider, and researcher understanding of and attitudes toward patient and other stakeholder engagement in research.
  • To evaluate the potential for patient, health care provider, and researcher engagement in research to enhance the uptake of research results in clinical practice.
  • To understand barriers to and facilitators of use of CER results in health decision making and clinical practice.
  • To develop methods to facilitate use of CER in heath decision making and clinical practice.
