Updated: OCTRI community pilot project funding with the Central Oregon Research Coalition

The Oregon Clinical & Translational Research Institute is accepting letters of intent for Community Pilot Project Funding. OCTRI’s Community & Practice Research program seeks to work collaboratively with community organizations, health care practices and researchers to study how best to improve the health of Oregonians.

In particular, the purpose of this funding mechanism is to encourage research projects in collaboration with the Central Oregon Health Council (COHC) to evaluate the impact and implementation of six key initiatives (maternal child health, chronic pain, transitions of care, complex care coordination, expansion of the pediatric RN care coordination project, and integrating care for children with special health care needs). Applications must be submitted by an OHSU investigator in partnership with the COHC.  Please contact Dr. Jackilen Shannon with the Central Oregon Research Coalition for more information.

Letters of intent are due September 3, 2013. Applicants may request up to $50,000 for one year. Use of COHC data analyst/liaison services depends on the individual needs of the project but will be expected to be budgeted at a minimum of $10,000 as part of the $50,000.
