Apply for THRIVE Peer Support Collaborative Funding

In support of the THRIVE initiative, the Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM) is proud to fund the third round of seed grants to foster an international network of in-person support groups linking survivors of critical illness and their families. These groups will offer survivors mutual support and the opportunity to share solutions to the challenges of recovery after an intensive care unit (ICU) stay.

The goal of these grants is not to fund ICU follow-up clinics but rather to develop peer-support models with strong survivor co-leadership as the foundation for growing an international network.

Applications are due June 1, 2017.

If you have any questions, please contact SCCM staff partner Adair Andrews at aandrews@sccm.org.

ODRC and AOPO Announce RFP for Organ Donation Research

The Organ Donation Research Consortium (ODRC) with additional support from the Association of Organ Procurement Organizations (AOPO) is pleased to offer up to $40,000 in funding to ODRC member(s) (or those willing to join and maintain ODRC membership through the life of the grant) conducting basic, translational or clinical research specifically related to the organization’s mission to advance the science of organ donation.

The ODRC seeks to sponsor research efforts that will ultimately improve the numbers and quality of organs available for transplantation in the United States. Applications are encouraged that focus on expanding our knowledge of donor management research, including, but not limited to, consent, organ donation physiology, clinical interventions to improve donor organs, and recipient outcomes. Single-center projects, for example, should specifically address the potential to generalize their findings to multisite settings.

Applications are due by 5:00 p.m. Pacific Standard Time on July 1, 2016. Additional information, including eligibility and submission requirements, are available on the ODRC website.

Application Deadline Tomorrow for THRIVE Support Group Network Funding

These groups will offer survivors mutual support and the opportunity to share solutions to the challenges of recovery after an intensive care unit (ICU) stay.

Via a brief, expedited application process, SCCM will select five new sites to join the collaborative. Participation is open to institutions that already have a support group in place, as well as those that wish to establish a new support system for patients. Participants will join together in regular calls to share knowledge about nurturing such groups and helping them grow. The goal of these grants is not to fund ICU follow-up clinics but rather to develop peer-support models with strong survivor co-leadership as the foundation for growing an international network.

Applications are due June 17, 2016.

SCCM Forms the SCCM-Weil Research Trust

Meeting at the conclusion of its 44th Annual Critical Care Congress, the Society of Critical Care Medicine’s (SCCM) governing Council voted to create the SCCM-Weil Research Trust.

Seeded with $1 million transferred from SCCM’s reserves, earnings from investment of the trust’s assets will be used to fund research grants in perpetuity. Society members and others motivated to support the expansion of critical care research will be invited to contribute to the trust.

“This investment allows us to double the amount of funding SCCM is giving out in grants to those researching ways to improve the care we provide to our patients,” Society President Craig M. Coopersmith, MD, FCCM, said. “It demonstrates our commitment to being part of the discovery and innovation needed to help secure future advances in the ICU.”

Explaining the motivation of SCCM’s leadership, Dr. Coopersmith added, “Our research seeks to help patients in the future, but has foundations in our past. The Society’s founder, Dr. Max Harry Weil, was a true visionary who committed his entire life to the pillars of academic life – patient care, discovery and innovation, and education. In addition to founding SCCM, Dr. Weil had a lifelong focus on performing patient-oriented research. The naming of this trust for Dr. Weil honors his legacy, and is a transformative step for our organization.”

The first grant from the SCCM-Weil Trust will be awarded in 2016 at the 45th Critical Care Congress in Orlando using the same criteria, rules and selection processes that govern the previously established Vision Grant program.
