Welcome to the Tufts CTSI Engaging Stakeholders in Comparative Effectiveness Research Website
What is comparative effectiveness research?, and why is it important for stakeholders to participate?
This interactive, educational program is targeted to researchers to promote stakeholder engagement in comparative effectiveness research (CER). Engagement of stakeholders is increasingly called for in federal and foundation-funded research, but has been particularly highlighted in CER and patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR).
This program is designed to be used by individual researchers or as part of a CER training program for researchers. The program consists of an overview module and six additional modules. The six module topics are seen in the Tufts CTSI Translational Spectrum of CER illustration below.
