Webinar : IMPACT Demonstration Project Funding Opportunity
The IMPACT Collaboratory has released a Request for Applications (RFA) for Demonstration Project Grants. An informational webinar will be held with Dr. Vince Mor on Tuesday, October 19. Registration Required. Letters of Intent are required and due no later than October 29, 2021. See details below.
The National Institute on Aging (NIA) IMPACT Collaboratory (U54AG063546) was established in 2019 to build the nation’s capacity to conduct pragmatic clinical trials (ePCTs) of non-pharmacological interventions embedded within healthcare systems to improve the care of people living with Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) and AD-related dementias (ADRD) and their care partners.
The IMPACT Collaboratory will fund up to two Demonstration Projects (maximum duration 24 months) designed as full-scale, Stage IV effectiveness ePCTs (based on the NIH Stage Model) that test, measure, and evaluate the effect of a care delivery intervention program in a health care system for people living with AD/ADRD and their care partners. The goal of the Demonstration Project is to generate evidence on effective care delivery practices that can be expanded and/or implemented in other systems. The IMPACT Collaboratory will give preference to applications for Demonstration Projects that address dementia care for populations historically marginalized or underrepresented in clinical trials and those that promote health equity.
