Emergency Medicine Foundation/Emergency Nurses Association Foundation Directed Team Grant Research Award
Deadline for receipt of application: January 10, 2014
The Emergency Medicine Foundation and the ENA Foundation jointly award this grant to facilitate collaboration between the disciplines and to improve clinical research in emergency care. This grant is intended for physician and nurse researchers to combine their expertise to develop, plan, and implement clinical research in emergency care.
The EMF/ENA Foundation Directed Team Grant Research Award program awards one $50,000 grant for research over a one year period.
PURPOSE OF THE EMF/ENA FOUNDATION DIRECTED TEAM GRANT RESEARCH AWARD
This grant exists because of the donation of funds by both the Emergency Medicine Foundation and the ENA Foundation. It was funded specifically to support work that arises from a true physician-nurse partnership in a clinical research area pertinent to the practice of emergency medicine. As such, the applicants must provide evidence of a true collaborative effort between physician and nurse professionals and must delineate the relative roles of the participants in terms of protocol development, data collection, and manuscript preparation.
This request for proposals specifically seeks research related to the topic of ED overcrowding and ED workplace violence. Proposals may focus on a number of related areas, including: definitions and outcome measures of ED overcrowding, causes and effects of ED overcrowding, potential solutions to the problem of ED overcrowding, the scope and problem of ED workplace violence, definitions and metrics for measuring ED workplace violence, and projects that address coping with workplace violence.
Applications will be accepted from any emergency medicine physician/nurse team working full or part time in emergency care at any domestic, Joint Commission-accredited institution. The nurse principal investigator must:
• Be a current Emergency Nurses Association (ENA) member
• Not have served on the ENA board of directors, ENA Foundation board of trustees, or ENA Foundation grant review team in the immediate past three years
The applicants must demonstrate that access to suitable caseload, patient population or database will be available for study during the funding period. The applicants must submit letters of support from their director/chair stating that adequate funds and release time will be available. Research involving human subjects must be approved by the institutional review board (IRB), or its equivalent, and a copy of the approval or pending approval sent with this application. IRB approval must be documented prior to dispensation of EMF funds.
EVALUATION OF APPLICATIONS
Emergency medicine specialists who are actively involved in clinical or health services emergency medicine research will review each application. The review committee will be comprised of members of the Scientific Review Committee of the American College of Emergency Physicians (this committee performs peer review for EMF) and members of the ENA Foundation. Each application will be judged according to 1) significance to the topic of ED overcrowding or ED workplace violence, 2) demonstration of a collaborative effort between physician and nurse researchers along with the applicants’ background, commitment, and potential as a researchers in emergency medicine, 3) the scientific merit, methodology and originality of the research project, 4) appropriateness of budget, and 5) the documented willingness of the sponsoring institution to provide the necessary facilities and support to complete the projects as described. Additional elements that contribute to the score will be project feasibility and the clear statement of measurable aims. Feasibility may be enhanced by inclusion of appropriate hospital administrative leaders. Purely descriptive projects or surveys are unlikely to be successful. Preliminary data from the research institution is highly encouraged. In constructing the project goals, applicants are encouraged to be aware of the June 14, 2006 report by the Institute of Medicine Hospital-Based Emergency Care: At the Breaking Point, and its findings relative to the impact of overcrowding in the emergency department. The final funding decision will be made jointly by the Emergency Medicine Foundation Board of Trustees and the ENA Foundation. All decisions are final.
Limitations on Awards
Funds may be used for materials, supplies, services (e.g., respiratory therapy, statistical consultation), or to provide salary support for ancillary staff (e.g., technicians, data collectors). Capital equipment expenditures (cost greater than $500 and with a life of over one year) must be justified in the budget. Payments will be made to the principal investigators’ institution that will be responsible for administering the funds. Neither the Emergency Medicine Foundation nor the ENA Foundation will be responsible for institutional overhead, cost for publications, travel, renovations, or secretarial support. Detailed audited financial reports may be required. EMF and ENA Foundation are not fiscally responsible for funds necessary for the project's completion.
Wayne F. Placek Grants
These grants support scientific research to increase the general public's understanding of homosexuality and to alleviate the stress that gay men and lesbians experience in this and future civilizations.
One $15,000 grant is available in research support.
Deadline: March 1, 2014
Sponsor: American Psychological Foundation
The grants support empirical research from all fields of the behavioral and social sciences on any topic related to lesbian, gay, or bisexual issues. Proposals are especially encouraged for empirical studies that address the following topics:
Heterosexuals' attitudes and behaviors toward lesbians and gay men, including prejudice, discrimination and violence.
Family and workplace issues relevant to lesbians and gay men.
Subgroups of the lesbian and gay population that have historically been underrepresented in scientific research.
These grants are made possible by a bequest from Wayne Placek, a participant in Dr. Evelyn Hooker's groundbreaking research in the 1950s, which showed that homosexuality is not a form of psychopathology. Since 1995, the Placek Fund has granted more than $1 million.
Must be either a doctoral‐level researcher or graduate student affiliated with an educational institution of a 501(c)(3) nonprofit research organization. Graduate students and early career researchers are encouraged to apply.
