American Nephrology Nurses' Association Evidence–Based Practice Project Grant
First Proposal Submission (Optional) for Review and Research Committee Feedback: August 31, 2014
Final Proposal Submission: November 15, 2014
To fund qualified nephrology nurses’ work to translate research into practice in support of developing evidence-based nephrology nursing practice and demonstrating the value of nephrology nursing in improving patient outcomes.
PROJECT TYPES ELIGIBLE FOR FUNDING*
• Primary Research: funding on a smaller scale as compared to the research grant award. Pilot studies, and partial funding for research projects, thesis, or dissertations.
• Evidence Summary: synthesis of the body of research on a topic of relevance to practice into a single, meaningful statement of the state of the science. Examples include systematic review, meta analysis, review of the literature.
• Research Translation: translation of evidence into practice recommendations. Examples include: clinical practice guidelines that may include clinical pathways, protocols, and algorithms.
• Integration: adoption of a practice change based on evidence. This involves changing both individual and organizational practices through formal and informal channels. Examples include implementation of a clinical pathway based on evidence found in the literature, use of an evidence-based algorithm found in the literature.
• Evaluation: evaluation of an EBP project already implemented in the clinical setting.
• Other projects. Examples include: staff development programs on topics such as evidence based practice, learning to evaluate the research literature, how to effectively conduct a literature search, development of patient teaching materials that are evidence-based, implementation of a journal club to introduce EBP. Consult with the Research Committee to determine appropriateness of other project ideas.

Call for Applications: Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Woman to Woman Program Grant
A Woman to Woman program grant recipient will receive a one-year grant of no more than $50,000. This grant opportunity is available to any medical institutions with a sufficient volume of gynecologic cancer patients and a need to provide this type of support service to patients. Grants are provided to cover the cost of a part-time Program Coordinator’s salary (can be a new hire, or a reassignment), program costs, and the patient fund (no indirect costs are allowed). It is expected that each Woman to Woman program will become self-funding after the first year.
OCRF will provide all program materials for patients, as well as technical assistance and support, for the life of the program (even after the end of the grant period). Programs will also have access to a dedicated section of the fund's website available to participants only, which will feature tools to assist in the development and administration of new programs.
OCRF is now accepting applications for a Woman to Woman program grant. The deadline for submission is May 1, 2014.
