American Academy for Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine Transformative Practice Award
The AACPDM is pleased to announce the introduction of a new award designed to facilitate sharing of expertise among members of the Academy. The Transformative Practice Award will provide financial support for collaboration among members for the purpose of implementing an evidence-based management strategy in clinical practice. One award of up to $4000.00 will be available for 2013. The application deadline is June 28, 2013 and the recipient will be announced at the 2013 Annual Meeting.
The intent of the Transformative Practice Award is to facilitate the translation of evidence based clinical management strategies into practice. Funding is available to support members to plan and implement specific interventio strategies that are supported by research evidence. The award is based on the premise of ‘academic detailing’ whereby ‘experts’ who have been involved in the successful implementation of specific evidence-based management strategies within their facility support the host facility in the implementation of those strategies for changing clinical practice. Research suggests that academic detailing is an effective strategy for implementing changes in clinical practice. The specific objectives of the program are to:
Facilitate sharing of expertise and knowledge regarding implementation of specific, evidence-based, clinical management strategies into practice among AACPDM members.
Ensure that implementation of new clinical management strategies is based on established practices such as addressing local barriers to implementation and the involvement of relevant stakeholders in planning.
Assist the development of implementation plans and evaluation plans for determining how successful the initiative was in changing clinical practice.
Applicants and identified experts must be current AACPDM members.
Applicants must not have received an AACPDM Transformative Practice Grant within the past five years.
Proposed management strategies for implementation must be relevant for individuals with cerebral palsy, developmental disorders, or other childhood acquired disability.
TERMS OF AWARD
AACPDM members are invited to submit applications describing planned implementation of management strategies for populations included in the mandate of the AACPDM. Potential activities for translation of management strategies into practice include but are not limited to:
On-site feedback from an expert in the relevant clinical area who has demonstrated success with implementation of the management strategy
Meetings with relevant, key stakeholders to identify and overcome local barriers to implementation.
Follow-up meeting(s) or teleconferences with the expert to allow for ongoing support and guidance.
Evaluation of implementation of strategies related to practice change (i.e., how did practice change after implementation of activities outlined in this application?)
Activities related to the transformative practice award must be completed within one year of receipt of the award. The grant amount is up to $4000.00 per award. In 2013, one award will be granted to members living within North America. Following the first year, the award will be evaluated and plans will be reviewed to allow for international member applications. A final report will be required within 3 months of the end of the term of the award. The final report must include a description of activities, the results of the evaluation of implementation and a line-by-line description of how funds were spent.
Eligible expenses include:
Travel expenses for the expert
On-site meeting related expenses
Knowledge translation activity expenses
Personal remuneration, administrative costs (i.e., standard office equipment and supplies), and activities unrelated to the implementation of the management strategy outlined in the proposal are ineligible expenses.

Clinician-Scientist Development Three-Year Award in Parkinson's Disease
Co-sponsored by the American Brain Foundation and the Parkinson's Disease Foundation
Application Deadline: October 1, 2013
The American Brain Foundation, the foundation of the American Academy of Neurology, and the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation are pleased to announce a three-year Clinician-Scientist Development Award to support a clinician scientist’s research related to Parkinson’s Disease.
The three-year award will consist of an annual salary of $75,000 plus $5,000 in educational expenses, per year. Supplementation of the stipend with other grants or by the fellowship institution is permissible, but fellows may not accept other fellowships, similar awards, or have another source of support for more than 50 percent of their research salary during the first year of an American Brain Foundation Clinical Research Training Fellowship. If similar awards are obtained after completion of the first year of the American Brain Foundation Clinical Research Training Fellowship, fellows are required to submit a revised budget for review by executive members of the American Brain Foundation Research Committee or may need to forfeit the rest of the American Brain Foundation award. Only direct costs will be funded by this award.
1. Must be a neurologist interested in an academic career in clinical research.* Applicants must hold an MD, DO, or equivalent clinical degree from an accredited institution, and must be licensed to practice medicine in the United States.
2. Applicants must have completed residency training but be less than seven years from completion of residency when funding begins.
3. There is no citizenship requirement; however, the individual applying for the award must be licensed to practice medicine in the United States at the time of application.
Clinical research is defined as ”patient-oriented research conducted with human subjects, or translational research specifically designed to develop treatments or enhance diagnosis of neurological disease. These areas of research include epidemiologic or behavioral studies, clinical trials, studies of disease mechanisms, the development of new technologies, and health services and outcomes research.” Disease-related studies not directly involving humans or human tissue also are encouraged if the primary goal is the development of therapies, diagnostic tests, or other tools to prevent or mitigate neurological disease.
