AHRQ Funding Opportunities in Primary Care Research
AHRQ announces interest in health services research to address substance use disorder epidemic
AHRQ has issued a Special Emphasis Notice in health services research to prevent, identify, and treat substance use disorders with a high degree of interest in applications that respond to the following three specific areas of focus:
- Dissemination and implementation of evidence-based, nonpharmacological and behavioral interventions that can treat multiple substances or polysubstance use in ambulatory care and primary care settings.
- Development and testing of healthcare services interventions in primary care and ambulatory care settings to address substance use disorder that consider the social, environmental, economic, and psychological factors that contribute to substance use disorder.
- Understanding and addressing the effect of substance use disorder on whole person health and the development and/or management of other chronic conditions.
AHRQ is especially interested in health services research applications that would reduce disparities and improve patient experience.
