Dr. Bala Subramaniam and his team at the Sadhguru Center for a Conscious Planet have been awarded a multimillion-dollar award from the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Group (PCORI) for a new study, “SCOPE Trial,” that will test a novel intervention involving prehabilitation with sleep enhancement, cognitive exercise, and extended postoperative analgesia to reduce post-operative delirium. Dr. Subramaniam will lead this multicenter trial done in collaboration with MGH, Columbia, and Ohio State University. This grant was selected for PCORI funding through a highly competitive review process in which patients and other stakeholders joined clinician scientists to evaluate the proposals. The SCOPE trial will provide important evidence that can potentially decrease postoperative delirium in heart surgery patients.
PCORI is an independent, nonprofit organization authorized by Congress in 2010.
