Roundtable discussion on Multiple Chronic Conditions and Opportunities for PCORI Research

PFCD will convene partners, interested stakeholders, and health care experts - including PCORI scientists – to explore and identify key areas of research that could result in better care, decision-making, and outcomes for people coping with and at risk for developing multiple chronic conditions (MCC).

Roundtable panelists include:

  • Dr. Kara Odom Walker, PCORI
  • Alan Balch, Preventive Health Partnership
  • Cynthia Boyd, MD, Johns Hopkins
  • David Shern, Mental Health America
  • Nancy Scott, patient and past president of Dialysis Patient Citizens
  • Sandra Bollinger, health coach and diabetes educator

At this event, participants will work to develop a consensus document outlining critical PCORI research opportunities and recommendations on key areas of focus to better enhance the care of patients with MCC. This roundtable discussion is a product of PFCD’s MCC Working Group, which has already worked to develop an initial white paper outlining necessary research opportunities.
