We're pleased at the interest researchers, patients and other stakeholders have shown so far in our efforts to identify key research questions in five topic areas we're considering as the subjects of our first targeted funding announcements. And we hope to see even more interest and input in coming weeks.
On March 1, we launched a series of ad hoc multi-stakeholder workgroups to help us refine questions for our initial set of targeted research topics. Three of the five workgroups have since convened, but there are still ways for you to get involved. You can:
Join one of our two remaining workgroups via webinar.
Watch archived webinars and submit your comments.
We've posted the archived versions of the three workgroups held so far. You can view them using the links below:
You can also still submit a question or comment via our website, email, Twitter and telephone. We are accepting feedback on Preventing Injuries from Falls in the Elderly until March 26. Email us at

We hope you'll join us as this process continues. Your input will help us ensure that the final research questions we consider for funding effectively answer patients' questions and reflect the community's needs.
We also invite you to check out the archive of the webcast from our recent regional engagement workshop, The Power of Partnership in Research: Improving Healthcare Outcomes in Rural Settings. The event, held March 9-10 in Wichita, Kan., was a
highly energized gathering of all members in the health care community, where we jumpstarted many new research partnerships.  Please share your comments about this event and any of our other engagement efforts by email at
