The NIH Office of Strategic Coordination has given notice of an upcoming funding opportunity announcement (FOA) for Demonstration Projects for Pragmatic Clinical Trials focusing on the management of multiple chronic conditions. Pragmatic trials are primarily designed to determine the effects of an intervention under the usual conditions in which it will be applied. NINR has joined this initiative.
Demonstration Projects must address a question important for the management of multiple chronic health conditions. For this FOA, common chronic health conditions include diseases, chronic symptoms (e.g., chronic pain) as well as chronic functional impairment (e.g., disability). Applicants are strongly encouraged to develop projects that focus on prevention, diagnosis, treatment or management of patients with multiple chronic medical conditions – and one that engages partnership with multiple health care systems. Nurse scientists are encouraged to apply.
