CNY-CAN brings together patients and caregivers with researchers and health professionals to advance patient-centered outcomes research and to further efforts to help older adults live well and longer at home. Our next big event will be Deans Grand Rounds Thursday June 14 at SUNY Upstate Medical University and the free FOCUS Forum open to the public 8 a.m. June 15, 2018, at Loretto with Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute CEO Dr. Joe Selby.
FOCUS Greater Syracuse Inc. with our partners in the Central New York Citizens Aging Research and Action Network (CNY-CAN) is working through its third Pipeline to Proposals contract awarded by the
Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI).
The partnership developed with support from an initial Tier I contract through PCORI’s Pipeline to Proposal Awards Program. That was followed by a Tier II contract for $25,000 and a Tier III for $50,000. At each stage CNY-CAN demonstrated effective involvement of patients and caregivers in development of research proposals.
