Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation: Patient and Family EngagementDeadline: August 1, 2016
The Patient Care Program of the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation aims to improve the experience and outcomes of patient care. The Foundation is engaging the broader health care community to build capacity in the field of patient and family engagement. The Foundation’s Patient Care Program will fund a series of awards to Early-Career Investigators participating in innovative, translational research in the field in order to overcome barriers inhibiting adoption of strategies and interventions in patient and family engagement. Award recipients will be conducting work that has the potential to demonstrate the value of patient and family engagement as well as remove roadblocks and enable accelerants in the field.
Applicants should consider innovative research efforts and their potential for implementation across many health care delivery settings in developing project concepts. Projects are not limited to any one health care setting and can engage the health care system at the patient and family, provider or system level. Furthermore, the project does not need to be limited to only a specific discrete intervention, but could also focus on policies and other scalable approaches.
Amount: Four grants of up to $150,000 each (per year) will be made. The grant period is three years.
Eligibility: Investigators within four years of first faculty appointment or equivalent (e.g., scientists employed in non-university affiliated research institutes). Confirmed support from a senior mentor throughout the three-year award period should be received.
