CER Meeting – Updates and Highlights

The week of December 14th, three meetings were held to fulfill a PCORI P2P grant requirement. During the meeting we provided working group members with a brief educational presentation about what clinical effectiveness research (CER) is and what types of CER PCORI typically funds.

Highlights from the follow-up survey:

  • WG members generated 27 CER questions about FD/MAS
  • In addition to patient reported information, the top 3 additional records requested by researchers were x-rays, medical histories, and surgical reports/interoperative notes.
  • 100% of patients were willing to contribute a wide range medical records, and 80% said they knew how to obtain those records.
