Comparing Options for Management: Patient-Centered Results for Uterine Fibroids

COMPARE-UF is a nationwide registry of women with uterine fibroids that is designed to answer questions about the outcomes of different treatment options. The project is a collaboration between PCORI and AHRQ, and is led by Evan Myers, MD, MPH, of Duke University School of Medicine’s Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and the Duke Clinical Research Institute.

CMTP manages a 30-member Stakeholder Advisory Group that provides recommendations on the design and development of the registry, patient recruitment and outreach, and the translation and dissemination of study findings. Too often women seeking care for uterine fibroids feel their concerns are not acknowledged. CMTP works with the study leadership team to ensure that diverse stakeholder perspectives are voiced and fully considered throughout this process.

Findings from the COMPARE-UF study will be translated into evidence-based patient decision making tools and clinical practice guidelines. The end goal is to improve patient care for women with uterine fibroids.
