Best Practice Sharing Session: Engagement in PCORnet 1.0: Results of the Engagement Assessment Project
PCORnet has prioritized engagement as a key function in transforming healthcare research. However, there was little investment in capturing and scientifically assessing engagement activities in PCORnet. The Genetic Alliance Coordinating Center set out to capture, review and publish the resources, best practices, and lessons learned from PCORnet and its networks.
The purpose of this Standard Operation Procedure (SOP) is to establish a uniform process for PCORnet studies to follow when developing manuscripts and defining and contracting participating authors.
PaTH: Retaining Local Perspectives in the Era of the Central IRB – The PaTH Network Protocol Review Committee Poster
As currently implemented, the single IRB process means valuable input from both institutional as well as patient and community resources of ceding sites is lost. The PaTH Network aims to develop and implement a process to ensure local patient input in research protocols reviewed under the single, or central, IRB model.
PaTH: A Multi-Site Review Process that Retains Local Patient Involvement in the Era of the Central IRB Abstract
The PaTH CDRN has developed a pre-IRB review process that incorporates input from all involved sites and their patient partners, enabling all stakeholders to help craft final research plans. Patient partners included in such a pre-IRB review often identify issues that are distinct from those raised by IRB members or by patients who work with specific research teams.
PORTAL and OneFlorida: ‘Safety of Direct Acting Antivirals for Patients with Hepatitis C Virus’ Research Request Form
The ‘Safety of Direct Acting Antivirals (DAA) for Patients with Hepatitis C Virus (HCV)’ project examined whether patients with HCV who are prescribed newer DAA medications experienced higher rates of adverse events than patients with HCV who are untreated.
PORTAL and OneFlorida: ‘Safety of Direct Acting Antivirals for Patients with Hepatitis C Virus’ Adverse Events Definitions
The ‘Safety of Direct Acting Antivirals (DAA) for Patients with Hepatitis C Virus (HCV)’ project examined whether patients with HCV who are prescribed newer DAA medications experienced higher rates of adverse events than patients with HCV who are untreated. The project team is sharing the list of the adverse events and definitions (e.g., ICD-9 and ICD-10 codes) used in this study of the safety of a specific medication. It can be used by others who are studying these types of adverse events.
This toolkit was created by members of the Patient Advisory Council (PAC) of ImproveCareNow. The purpose of this toolkit is to share personal stories about traveling with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, answer questions, and identify tips and techniques that can make travel easier, safer and more comfortable. Use this to inform the creation of a people-centered, condition-specific tools for improving quality of life.
