Associate Professor Dr. Teri Browne will lead the National Kidney Foundation Patient Centered Outcomes Research Stakeholders’ Conference. The conference will bring together 100 patients, caregivers, stakeholders and academics to identify patient-centered research priorities—and challenges—for kidney disease. Facilitated by both a patient and researcher, the conference will feature patient, caregiver and researcher panel discussions and break-out group sessions. Attendees will gain insight into the experiences of patients, caregivers and researchers; learn more about the importance of patient centered outcomes research (PCOR), and identify best practice strategies for actively engaging patients in kidney disease research.

As part of NKF’s commitment to the Stakeholders’ Conference the foundation will provide a minimum of $40,000 towards funding a 2018 Kidney Disease Patient Centered Research Grant that will focus on the top kidney disease priorities identified by patients at the Conference. Funded through a Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) Eugene Washington PCORI Engagement Award, the Stakeholders’ Conference will be held in conjunction with the National Kidney Foundation Spring Clinical Meetings in Orlando in April, 2017. If you have questions, or are interested in participating in the Conference, please visit www.kidney.org/pcori.
