AHRQ has funding available for large research projects in two areas: preventing healthcare-associated infections (HAI) and efforts for combating antibiotic-resistant bacteria (CARB).
The application deadline for both of these funding opportunities is June 5, 2018.
The HAI research projects should advance the knowledge of HAI detection, prevention and reduction of HAIs.
CARB research project proposals should address ways to promote appropriate antibiotic use, reduce the transmission of resistant bacteria or prevent HAIs in the first place.
These funding opportunities are open to researchers who focus on health care settings including long-term care, ambulatory care, acute care hospitals and transitions between care settings.
Meanwhile, companion funding opportunities are also available for demonstration and dissemination projects for both HAI and CARB.
The deadline for these applications is May 25, 2018.
