May 29: Diagnostic Safety and Social Determinants Funding Opportunities

AHRQ’s new funding opportunity announcements seek research proposals in two areas:

  • Increasing understanding about how and why diagnostic errors occur. Diagnostic errors include missed and incorrect diagnoses as well as poorly communicated diagnoses and are estimated to affect most people at least once in their lifetime. The funding announcement outlines three areas of interest: quantifying the incidence of diagnostic errors, understanding what contributes to these errors, and learning more about the link between diagnostic errors and outcomes, including adverse events.

  • Using data analytics to promote health equity and improve chronic disease prevention and management through primary care and community interventions that address social determinants of health of at-risk individuals and populations.

Letters of intent for both funding opportunities are due April 22.

The deadline for applications is May 29 at 5 p.m. EST.
