Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation Issues RFP for Patient, Family Engagement Program

The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation has issued a Call for Submissions from early-career investigators to build capacity within the field of patient and family engagement.

Through its Patient Care Program, the foundation will award four grants of up to $150,000 each over three years for projects at every level of care — from community-based safety, chronic disease management, and preference sensitive decision-making to approaches specific to serious illness. The foundation also will consider policy reform efforts and scalable approaches aimed at encouraging and enabling the engagement of patients and their loved ones in their care. To overcome barriers inhibiting adoption of strategies and interventions in patient and family engagement, the foundation sees early-career investigators who are participating in innovative, translational research as catalysts for change.

To be eligible, applicants must be conducting work that has the potential to demonstrate the value of patient and family engagement and remove roadblocks in the field. Prospective candidates should identify a project concept that will advance the field and identify a senior mentor to advise them during the duration of the award. Projects varying in scope and area of interest within patient and family engagement will be considered and are not limited to any single healthcare setting.

Letters of Intent must be received no later than August 1, 2016. Upon review selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal.

For complete program guidelines, application instructions, and information about grant recipients from previous years, see the Moore Foundation website.
