Celiac.com 05/20/2016 - The Celiac Disease Foundation (CDF) has received an award from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI).

The PCORI Eugene Washington Engagement Award will help the CDF to create a national network of advocates trained in patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR), known as the Patient Engagement Celiac Disease Network (PECDN).

The project is aimed at patients and caregivers who may be eager to participate in research, but who may feel unprepared to work with researchers, as researcher expectations and terminology can be confusing.

Through this network, CDF will train patients and caregivers to become more involved in research in ways that will impact the treatment of their disease.

The first training program for patients and caregivers will be offered at Celiac Disease Foundation's National Conference April 30, 2016.
