Society of Critical Care Medicine Vision Grant
The Society's Vision Grant offers up to $50,000 in funding to members conducting basic, translational or clinical research specifically related to the organization's mission to secure the highest quality care for all critically ill and injured patients.
SCCM seeks to sponsor research efforts that will ultimately improve patient care in the ICU. Investigator-initiated research should help advance and improve our understanding of critical illness and patient care.
Interest is broad. Applications are encouraged that focus on expanding our basic knowledge of critical illness, clinical interventions to improve patient outcomes, technical aspects - such as electronic surveillance systems -- as well as studies exploring cultural and educational factors among ICU staff that either impede or facilitate a climate promoting best practice and error reduction. Priority will be given to projects that have broad relevance. Single-center projects, for example, should specifically address the potential to generalize their findings to other critical care settings.
Submission and Deadline
APPLICATION SUBMISSION DEADLINE: AUGUST 11, 2014.
One electronic copy of the application must be received by August 11, 2014.
Please submit the electronic copy to Vision Grant, utilizing the "Request a delivery receipt" and "Request a read receipt" functions.
