New PCORI Funding Announcement: Optimal Treatment Sequences for Nonspecific Chronic Low Back Pain
The new Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) will be releasing a new funding announcement titled, "Optimal Treatment Sequences for Nonspecific Chronic Low Back Pain." The goal of this announcement is to fund large, pragmatic, randomized clinical trials that compare the effectiveness of sequences of efficacious and/or commonly used noninvasive interventions alone or in combination for patients with nonspecific, nonradicular chronic low back pain.
The mission of PCORI is to improve the quality and relevance of evidence available to help patients, caregivers, clinicians, employers, insurers, and policy makers make informed health decisions.
The announcement can be found on the PCORI website and the full funding announcement will be available in January 2017.
