These include two targeted announcements: one on treating opioid use disorders among pregnant women, and one on managing symptoms in patients with advanced illness. We are also accepting LOIs through our Pragmatic Clinical Studies program and a limited funding announcement on dissemination and implementation. LOIs for all five opportunities are due Tuesday, July 25.

Hill Briefing and Facebook Live Q&A on Prostate Cancer

We’ve partnered with Men’s Health Network to host a Capitol Hill briefing on shared decision making and prostate cancer. It will take place Wednesday, June 28. If you’re unable to attend, you may watch a recording we’ll post afterward. Learn more about the hill briefing here.

You can also join us online at 4 p.m. ET the same day for a Facebook Live and Twitter Q&A focusing on the need for patient-centered research on men’s health. In a new¬†feature article, one of the speakers at both events describes his experiences as a prostate cancer survivor who helped design and conduct PCORI-funded research.
