This webinar introduces a new tool for state policymakers: A Roadmap for State Policymakers to Use Comparative Effectiveness and Patient-Centered Outcomes Research to Inform Decision Making (coming August 5, 2014). With support from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), NASHP created this guide to assist states in making evidence-based policy decisions. This webinar provides an overview of the Roadmap and discusses how policymakers can—and are—using research to inform their work with a particular focus on Comparative Effectiveness Research and Patient-Centered Outcomes Research.
