This program provides grants to support research aimed at determining needs and best practices for the integration of palliative care into home and community settings.

Proposed studies should include a focus on individual and/or family centered outcomes. Studies may be focused on care across all stages of the lifespan and advanced diseases and conditions including cardiopulmonary, renal, hepatic, multiple chronic conditions, neurologic disorders, dementias, and cancers. The integration of social services and supports with health management aspects of palliative care and those that address family caregiver needs are also of interest.

Applications should consider approaches that may be implemented in rural/remote areas, as well as urban areas, and that are sensitive to ethnicities and cultures.

Detailed lists of relevant research topics are provided in the application instructions.

  1. R01 Research Project Grant that supports a discrete project to be performed by an investigator in an area representing the investigator's specific interest and competencies
