New QUERI Supplemental Funding Opportunity for CSP Studies
The mission of the VHA Quality Enhancement Research Initiative (QUERI) program is to improve care by studying and facilitating the adoption of evidence-based treatments into routine practice. In the traditional "pipeline" approach, QUERI has focused on implementing treatments once proven effective; however this process may take years if not decades due to barriers to uptake across different practice settings.
To this end, in coordination with the VA Cooperative Studies Program (CSP), QUERI has developed a supplemental funding program for current or recently completed VA Cooperative Studies to support the design and advancement of "implementation-ready" clinical treatments of proven effectiveness to ultimately reduce the gap between research and clinical practice.
QUERI-CSP supplemental projects are limited to $50,000 per year for up to two years and are accepted on a rolling basis. Application are limited to two pages and should address an implementation or quality improvement question designed to reduce barriers to uptake if the clinical treatment or practice is proven effective. For more information please contact QUERI Program Manager Linda McIvor (Linda.McIvor@va.gov).
