DoD FY15 Orthotics Outcomes Research Award: The FY15 Orthotics Outcomes Research Award is intended to support research that evaluates the comparative effectiveness of orthotic clinical interventions and/or their associated rehabilitation interventions, using patient-centric outcomes for Service members and Veterans who have undergone limb impairment or limb amputation. The objective is to improve the understanding of orthotic devices, treatments, rehabilitation strategies, and secondary health effects. The ultimate goal is to advance the adoption and implementation of these evidence-based interventions. Proposed projects should be designed to provide patient-centric outcomes data regarding orthotic devices, and/or related clinical interventions, and must include the anticipated effect on patient care metrics. Principal Investigators (PIs) are strongly encouraged to collaborate, integrate, and/or align their research projects with Department of Defense (DoD) and/or VA research laboratories and programs.Studies relating to or associated with orthotic devices, treatments, rehabilitation strategies, and secondary health effects are sought that:Include longitudinal outcomes.Compare different patient care approaches.Include patient-centric outcome assessments.Generate new knowledge that supports the development of new, or modification of, existing clinical practice guidelines and recommendations.Generate new prescription algorithms.Provide information on quality of life, reintegration, and/or return to duty/return to work as it pertains to those patients who use an orthotic device due to limb impairment.Generate results and/or materials that are directly translatable to the clinic and patient use.All applications must demonstrate direct relevance to Service members and Veterans with traumatic extremity injury and/or amputation using orthotic devices. Examples of studies that are appropriate for submission to the FY15 OORA include, but are not limited to, examination of the functional and patient-centered outcomes associated with:The specific time points in the course of patient treatment for which the orthotic intervention is the most effective.Different treatment algorithms to determine the most appropriate orthotic device.The comparative effectiveness of different orthotic devices.Evaluation of the prevention of secondary adverse consequences of orthotic device use.Application of specific rehabilitation interventions to accelerate the time, course, or extent of functional outcomes in Service members and Veterans using orthotic devices.
