Designed to advance pharmacy practice, these grants support research that evaluates the pharmacy practice models in hospitals, health systems, and other ambulatory settings.
The principal investigator (PI) must be a new researcher within five (5) years of completion of his/her terminal degree or postgraduate training or have professional experience greater than five years and no more than two (2) externally funded research projects as a PI. A senior investigator is required to serve on the team as an adviser. Senior investigators do not have to be pharmacists, but must have a strong research track record (such as publication of original research in peer-reviewed biomedical journals and previous grant funding). The ASHP Research Foundation will make two grant awards of $20,000 each. The grant period is two years from the date of award notification. Letters of intent are due September 25, 2016, with full applications due February 22, 2017.
With the intent to increase pharmacist leadership on patient care teams, these grants support practice-based research that evaluates innovative pharmacy practice advancement initiatives and programs in hospitals, health systems, and ambulatory settings. The PI must be a licensed pharmacist, and interprofessional research teams are encouraged. The PI and other members of the research team are required to have strong research track records as evidenced by a history of publication of original research in peer-reviewed biomedical journals and receipt of extramural grant funding. The ASHP Research Foundation will make up to two grants of $75,000 each. The grant period is two years from the date of award notification. Letters of intent are due October 12, 2016, with full applications due February 6, 2017.
This opportunity supports specific practice-based research conducted by residents in ASHP-accredited (or to-be-accredited) pharmacy residency programs. Studies that evaluate the pharmacy practice models in hospitals, health systems and other ambulatory settings – such as the utilization of technology, role delineation changes for the pharmacists and non-pharmacists, improving innovative patient care opportunities for pharmacists, or evaluating outcomes – are encouraged. The ASHP Research Foundation will award up to six grants of $5,000 each. The grant period is 18 months from the date of award notification, as funding is intended to provide specific short-term research and not long-term support of research programs. Letters of intent are not required for this opportunity; full applications are due October 10, 2016.
