Partnerships in Implementing Patient Safety: The partnerships in implementing patient safety grants are to assist health care institutions in implementing safe practice interventions that show evidence of eliminating or reducing medical errors, risks, hazards, and harms associated with the process of care. These implementation projects will inform AHRQ, providers, patients, payers, policy makers, and the public about how safe practice interventions can be successfully implemented in diverse health care settings and lead to safer and better health care for all Americans. The RFA will use the Cooperative Agreement U18 award mechanism. In FY 05, AHRQ intends to commit up to $3 million in total costs to fund up to 10-15 new grants. Because the nature and scope of the projects will vary from application to application, it is anticipated that the size and duration of each award will also vary. Applications can be up to 24 months in duration with a budget supported by AHRQ not to exceed $300,000 per year in total costs to the government. Awards are granted to institutions; therefore, individuals are not eligible applicants under this RFA. One application may be submitted by each institution. Applications may be submitted if the institution has any of the following characteristics: for-profit or non-profit organizations; domestic; eligible federal agencies; public and private non-profit institutions, such as universities, clinics, colleges, and hospitals; units of State and local governments; faith-based or community-based organizations; and tribes and tribal organizations. Because this RFA is principally intended to increase the implementation of safe practice interventions in the U.S., foreign institutions are not eligible to apply for grants. However, foreign organizations may participate in projects as members of consortia or as subcontractors. The PI should be an experienced senior level individual familiar with implementing change in health care settings. This individual should devote a considerable portion of his/her time to the project (at least 15% through the project duration). Any individual with the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to carry out the implementation of safe practices is invited to work with their colleagues and institution to develop an application for support. Further description regarding AHRQs authorizing statute and the regulations under which these grants fall is described in Section VIII below. Applications must be prepared using the PHS 398 research grant application instructions and forms (rev. 5/2001). The PHS 398 is available at http://grants.nih.gov/grants/funding/phs398/phs398.html in an interactive format.
