Funding Opportunity: Dissemination and Implementation of Equity-Focused Evidence-Based Interventions in Healthcare Delivery Systems (R18)
AHRQ seek applications using dissemination and implementation (D&I) science to fill evidence gaps critical to the development, adaption, implementation, and evaluation of equity-focused evidence-based interventions (EFEBIs) to accelerate health equity within healthcare delivery systems.
Evidence-based interventions (EBIs) include but are not limited to care practices, processes, guidelines, programs, and policies shown to have effectiveness across multiple ecological levels (individual, interpersonal, health system, community, and societal/policy).
Addressing healthcare inequities in historically underserved populations continues to be a critical national priority. Healthcare systems have a vital role in transforming care to be more equitable and will require tools and intervention strategies to support action and sustainable progress. Yet historically, equity has not been an explicit focus of many EBIs. As a result, evidence regarding the generalizability and effectiveness of EBIs across diverse contexts, populations, and settings has been limited, thereby having the potential to exacerbate health inequities and even cause harm. Building this evidence-base requires explicit attention on equity-focused EBIs that can fill an important void and advance the goal of eliminating disparities in care delivery by supporting the widespread and accelerated use of effective interventions focused on equity.
Applications are due by April 21, 2023.
