Research Funding Opportunities Through AHRQ

A recent webinar, “AHRQ FY18 Grant Cycle Research Funding Opportunities” hosted jointly by the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), provides prospective AHRQ grantees with important information about requirements and recommendations for a strong R01 application. The webinar is presented by James I. Cleeman, MD, Senior Medical Officer and Director of the Division of Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAIs), and Melissa Miller, MD, MS, Medical Officer in the Division of HAIs, from the Center for Quality Improvement and Patient Safety at AHRQ.

• A description of active program announcements and requests for applications related to the prevention and control of HAIs to develop improved methods for preventing HAIs and to develop effective implementation strategies for HAI prevention in all health care settings;
• An outline of AHRQ’s HAI research portfolio and a discussion about the types of studies the agency is interested in funding, such as research in combating antibiotic resistant bacteria, promoting appropriate antibiotic use, and reducing the transmission of resistant bacteria.
