The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) has released a Draft Methodology Report (PDF, 4.1MB) that proposes 60 standards for planning, conducting and reviewing patient-centered outcomes research. Among other topics, the standards address prioritization of research topics, selection of data sources, and research design and data analysis issues.
