Duke Children’s seeks proposals for projects designed to enhance the existing quality of care provided for our pediatric patients and their families. Specifically, proposals should focus on the following themes:
- Enhancing the quality of life for children with complex, life-threatening or chronic conditions, including pediatric pain
- Enhancing the quality of care for children suffering from emotional distress or physical abuse/neglect
This new initiative aims to foster interdisciplinary collaborations between the many divisions and subspecialties that encompass Duke Children’s and better achieve the organization’s shared goals of providing world-class patient- and family-centered care, training the next generation of physicians and healthcare professional leaders, and conducting cutting-edge basic and clinical research.
FUNDING: Awards of up to $100,000 will be provided to support each successful proposal. Funds can be used to cover effort of current Duke faculty and staff, supplies and other project expenses. [Grants are made possible through funds raised at the 2015 Duke Children’s Gala.]
REQUIREMENTS: Short, one-page applications should be submitted to Katherine Siler at email@example.com using the attached form [WORD, 28.3KB]. Proposals should include the name of the requestor, brief description of the project, list of participants/collaborators, and high level budget reflecting use of funds. Applications focused on innovative concepts and services that have the potential to be self-supporting after one year are encouraged.
All submissions must be received on or before October 16, 2015.
NOTIFICATION: Successful applicants will be informed by October 23, 2015, and will have one year from the start of funding to spend the award.
