Patient Centered Outcomes Research Toolkit

As a result of our 13-year history providing quality mental health treatment to North Carolina’s Latino immigrant families, we are more and more called to participate in research on Latino mental health. Like so many other organizations, we often find ourselves wondering if we have the capacity to collaborate on these projects, or whether we know how to participate in ways that bring the best outcomes to the most families.

Thanks to a grant from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), we convened a multi-stakeholder workgroup of researchers, community organizations, and Latino patients and caregivers to explore this issue further. What emerged from this process is an actionable and accessible Toolkit for community behavioral health organizations serving Latinos (CBHOSLs) who want to participate in PCOR, with concrete samples and tools to improve capacity for successful participation. As a result, our hope is that more CBHOSLs will be proactive in participating in research that can benefit the Latino behavioral health patients they serve.

An Executive Summary of the project is below, and a draft of our toolkit is available upon request. Please email us at to get a link to the toolkit so you can check it out and give us feedback. We want this to be helpful for you!
