Sages in Every Setting

Sages in Every Setting: An innovative model to incorporate the older adult voice into research is funded through a Eugene Washington PCORI Engagement Award (7206-CJE).

Sages in Every Setting will disseminate and build on the development of the Bureau of Sages as a ‘model process’ for developing similar bureaus. The aim is to expand and diversify the pool of long- term supportive service recipients, researchers, and providers who have the knowledge, skills and opportunities to collaborate in Patient Centered Outcomes Research and Comparative Effectiveness Research (PCOR/CER).

Part of the project is a series of virtual seminars (check below for registration links to upcoming seminars).
