Advance Care Planning Research Collaborative

Honoring Choices® Idaho is proud to be a partner in the Advance Care Planning Research Collaborative, a project funded by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute’s (PCORI) Pipeline to Proposal Awards program.

Pipeline to Proposal Awards enable individuals and groups that are not typically involved in clinical research to develop the means to develop community-led funding proposals focused on patient-centered comparative effectiveness research (CER). PCORI is an independent, non-profit organization authorized by Congress in 2010 to fund comparative effectiveness research that will provide patients, their caregivers, and clinicians with the evidence needed to make better-informed health and healthcare decisions. PCORI is committed to seeking input from a broad range of stakeholders to guide its work.

The Advance Care Planning Research Collaborative, launched in partnership between Honoring Choices® Idaho and Boise State University has been coordinating Tier 1 activities.  These include building relationships between community members, providers, and researchers; listening to one another about the challenges and opportunities around advance care planning; and  laying the foundation of a governance structure which will guide how they will participate together going forward.  Planning for Tier 2 activities is under way.  If you are interested in learning more and participating in the ACP Research Collaborative, please contact Kim Martz at
