Elizabeth Cox, MD, PhD, Awarded Two ICTR-CAP PCOR Grants

Congratulations to Elizabeth Cox, MD, PhD, who was recently awarded two 1-year grants through the UW Institute for Clinical and Translational Research Community-Academic Partnerships (ICTR-CAP) 2015 Patient-Centered Outcomes Research (PCOR) Program.

The first award, in the amount of $49,977, in collaboration with Co-PI Betty Chewning, PhD, FAPhA (Pharmacy), is entitled, “Sustaining Engagement of Blended Stakeholder Boards Across the PCOR Trajectory.” This proposal supports two objectives: 1) to increase researchers’ knowledge, skills, and self-efficacy in creating and sustaining meaningful blended stakeholder engagement across the PCOR trajectory and 2) creating and disseminating a training package and repository of materials that would support successful stakeholder engagement plans for intra- and extramural PCOR.

The second award, in the amount of $49,992, in which Dr. Cox is Co-PI with Barbara Bowers, PhD, RN (Nursing), is entitled, “Foundations for Successfully Engaging Hard-to-Reach Patient Stakeholders.” The goal of this project is to leverage the team’s experience and expertise in engaging hard-to-reach stakeholders by designing and delivering a multi-media package of resources that will equip researchers with specific strategies and tools to successfully engage racial/ethnic minorities, low-income/low literacy groups, and youth.
