Apply by September 8, 2015, to be considered for the THRIVE Research Grant to Accelerate Recovery. Grant support will begin in January 2016.
Through generous funding from the Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM), the THRIVE Grant offers $50,000 to support SCCM members conducting research aimed at improving patient and family support after critical illness. Investigator-initiated research should help advance our understanding of survivorship from critical illness and improve the experiences of survivors and their families.
Eligible areas of investigation include:
- Clinical interventions to improve patient experiences or outcomes
- Identification of modifiable mechanisms or testing of innovations that promote recovery
- Explorations of cultural and educational factors to facilitate networks and improve support among survivors
To begin the application process, log in to www.My.SCCM.org. Click on the “Submit an application for Vision Grant or THRIVE Grant here” link located in the right column. Note that you must be a current SCCM member to apply for the THRIVE Grant.
