COMPETITIVE SUPPLEMENTS TO STUDY ISSUES RELATED TO PATIENT SAFETY - EXTENSION

Release Date:  February 13, 2001

NOTICE:  NOT-HS-01-007

Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (formerly AHCPR)

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) is extending the 
deadline to March 1, 2001 for submission of competitive supplements to 
existing Centers for Education and Research on Therapeutics (CERTs) to study 
patient safety. This notice accompanies the announcement for competitive 
supplements published January 10, 2001, Notice NOT-HS-01-005 
(http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-HS-01-005.html). 

AHRQ recognizes that the mission of the CERTs is consistent with the patient 
safety agenda and therefore proposes to provide additional funding to enhance 
the work of the CERTs in this area.  AHRQ will consider requests from current 
grantees to develop supplemental research projects consistent with the 
original scope of the individual CERT and allowing the Centers to supplement 
their existing patient safety agendas.  Grantees are encouraged to refer to 
“To Err is Human: Building a Safer Health System” and the report from the 
Quality Interagency Committee (QuIC) at 
http://www.ahrq.gov/qual/errorsix.htm and to the scope of the original 
research proposal and adherence to criteria set forth in the original CERTs 
RFA at http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/RFA-HS-99-004.html.
