NON-NIH Funding Opportunity Announcements:

 

CDC: Developing and Disseminating Programs to Build Sustainable Lupus Awareness, Knowledge, Skills and Partnerships

Funding Opportunity Number: CDC-RFA-DP15-1511

Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disease in which the immune system produces antibodies to cells within the body leading to widespread inflammation and tissue damage. Relevant Work CDC has previously funded and is currently funding work on a variety of SLE-relevant activities, including lupus registries, follow-up studies, formative research, and creating a public health agenda. Approach Applicants will use the logic model which provides a framework for program planning, implementation, and evaluation throughout the entire project period. Working backwards through the logic model from the long-term objectives (impacts) will assure that strategies, activities, and short-term outcomes are aligned to achieve impact. Thus, all proposed objectives and activities in the applicant's work plan should be connected to elements reflected in the logic model and contribute to the ultimate goals of improving lupus symptom recognition, diagnosis, and use of self-management, physical activity, and strength training resources; improving lupus health outcomes, and improving health-related quality of life among individuals with lupus. The purpose of this program is to conduct activities that enhance the health and quality of life of people with lupus and their care givers by creating sustainable lupus awareness and improving lupus-related health communications, increasing patient and provider education and implementation of lupus self-management education, physical activity, and strength training strategies, and developing national partnerships with community-based organizations to enhance sustainability of efforts to increase awareness, improve health communication, and increase referral and dissemination of self-management and physical activity resources. This funding opportunity was announced June 10, 2015. The application deadline is August 10, 2015. For more information, please visit CDC’s Full Funding Opportunity Announcement.

USAMRAA: FY 2015 Medical Decision Aids- Predictive Markers (SimMarkers) Award

Funding Opportunity Number: W81XWH-15-DMRDP-MSIS-SIMMARKERS

The FY16 JPC-1/MSIS Medical Decision Aids - Predictive Markers (SimMarkers) is seeking research that improves healthcare professionals’ cognitive and performance skill acquisition or minimizes his/her skill decay. This research is seeking objective markers that could be inserted into a predictive model (one that has not been currently developed) to accurately and appropriately assess a healthcare professional’s cognitive and performance status. These cognitive and performance-type markers must be evidence-based and need to align with the respective credentialing or certifying healthcare organization. These cognitive and performance-type markers must also align with regional, local, and organization-specific recommendations, guidelines, and standards, especially if they exceed the credentialing or certifying healthcare organization-specific recommendations, guidelines, and standards. Eventually the long-term goal is that there will be computational models that could possibly be applicable to all healthcare providers, at any experience level. These markers should be task/procedure/skill agnostic, if at all possible, but need to provide enough detail and specifics to demonstrate, through a domain-specific proof of concept, that the markers indeed show some level of predictability. A pilot test in an entry-level medical domain-specific area is needed as an outcome of this research, in addition to the research information and evidence-based methodologies, to demonstrate feasibility of the skill acquisition, maintenance, or decay/degradation model. This funding opportunity was announced June 11, 2015. The application deadline is November 12, 2015. For more information, please visit USAMRAA’s Full Funding Opportunity Announcement.
