The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation Announces New Funding
The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation's Patient Care Program is pleased to announce an exciting funding opportunity for the field of patient and family engagement. On October 1st, the foundation will be issuing a call for letters of intent for their Patient and Family Engagement Early Career Investigator awards.
The Patient Care Program aims to eliminate preventable harms and unnecessary costs by meaningfully engaging patients and families in their own healthcare within a redesigned, supportive healthcare system. The Program's definition of preventable harms includes the loss of dignity and respect that patients often experience when they encounter the healthcare system and care not concordant with the wishes and values of patients and families. As part of this effort, the Patient Care Program is working to pave the way for broad adoption of patient and family engagement strategies and interventions.
Recipients of the Patient and Family Engagement Early Career Investigator awards will be conducting work that has the potential to demonstrate the value, remove roadblocks and enable accelerants in the field of patient and family engagement.
The call for letters of intent for the Patient and Family Engagement Early Career Investigator awards and additional information will be available on the foundation's website at moore.org on October 1, 2013.
Applicants for the award will be within 5 years of their first faculty appointment or equivalent (if employed at a private research institute or similar organization) at the time of submission. Letters of intent will be due to the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation on October 31, 2013.
