Understanding how individuals with mood disorders and their families (peers) define the burden of mood disorders, impact on their lives, preferred treatment outcomes, and improvement or progress towards wellness ensures that research addresses priorities most relevant to those affected.
With funding from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), the Institute for Patient- and Family-Centered Care (IPFCC) and the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA) led a project to better understand peer priorities for mood disorders research and develop recommendations for building partnerships between researchers, peers, and other stakeholders.
Join the IPFCC and DBSA team, PCORI, and peer partners to learn about opportunities for advancing peer priorities in mood disorders research.
o Learn about PCORI, the benefits of engagement in research, and opportunities to engage with PCORI
o Hear about topics and areas that peers would like future mood disorders research to address
o Develop an understanding of how researchers, peer advocacy organizations, and funders can help create meaningful partnerships with peers in research
o Hear directly from peers about the potential for partnership in research
