The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institution (PCORI) has announced new funding opportunities to organizations conducting COVID-19 research. The grant funding is to support research efforts regarding three target areas:
- Adaptations to healthcare delivery
- Impact of COVID-19 on vulnerable populations
- Impact of COVID-19 on healthcare workforce well-being, management, and training
The COVID-19 Targeted PFA will fund small studies up to $2,500,000 and large studies up to $5,000,000 with a maximum project period of two years.
The Well-Being Index is happy to be a measurement partner on this grant for research exploring the impact of COVID-19 on healthcare providers and effective strategies to protect the mental well-being of the healthcare workforce. Reach out to Well-Being Index expert Sunny Prabhakar at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
As a clinically-validated instrument, the Well-Being Index is used by over 600 institutions to accurately measure 6 dimensions of distress and well-being among healthcare providers. With PCORI grant funding, organizations can implement the Well-Being Index as a measurement tool in their COVID-19 research initiatives.
Due to the time-sensitive nature of the research, the deadline for grant applications is Tuesday, May 26th, 2020 by 5:00 p.m. ET.
"Applications should propose a realistic budget and timeline reflective of the scope and requirements of the proposed study." If your organization is interested in using the Well-Being Index in your COVID-19 research, reach out to the Well-Being Index team and we will help you put together a budget regarding the use of the tool in your study. There is also potential for your institution to continue to use the Well-Being Index on a grant-basis through PCORI following your study.
