The purpose of this Notice is to inform applicants that the
NCCAM will participate, effective immediately, in the following NIH Funding
Opportunity Announcements (FOAs):
PAR-10-039: Dissemination and Implementation Research in
Health (R03) (PAR-10-039)
PAR-10-040: Dissemination and Implementation Research in Health (R21) (PAR-10-040)
NCCAM is interested in mechanistic dissemination and implementation
research questions such as:
- Can effective measures be created for key implementation
constructs (e.g., supervision, outcomes monitoring, turnover, and leadership)?
How does implementation of effective practice affect turnover,
organizational culture and climate?
- Is there an effective model of (re)training providers in
- How can capacity be built within practice settings to support
implementation of effective practices?
What data systems can support ongoing assessment of
Examples of specific research questions or projects of
interest to NCCAM include but are not limited to:
- What are effective ways to implement the use of standardized
outcomes monitoring measures in health care settings that deliver pain
management strategies which incorporate complementary and alternative medicine
- What are effective ways to disseminate and implement model
curricula that have been developed in NCCAM R25 or CTSA programs to other
training programs in both complementary and alternative medicine and conventional
medical, nursing, and allied health professional school settings?
What data systems can support ongoing assessment of complementary
and alternative medicine (CAM) use or the use of evidence-based clinical
practice guidelines which incorporate CAM modalities in patient care settings?
- What are effective ways (such as incorporation in medical record
or use of electronic application) to implement screening for use of
non-vitamin, non-mineral dietary supplements by health care practitioners in
medical settings (in order to reduce risk of deleterious interactions with
- Studies examining the extent to which CAM providers such as NDs,
DO’s and DC’s are implementing best practice guidelines for known beneficial
health-related behaviors such as childhood vaccination, exercise, healthy
weight maintenance; studies identifying barriers to implementation of these
guidelines for CAM providers and patients who see CAM providers; and studies identifying
effective approaches to enhance implementation of guidelines and promotion of
these behaviors in CAM patient care settings.
Potential applicants are encouraged to conduct research in
primary care settings, pain clinics, and military medical care settings and to
utilize research platform models such as NIH Clinical Translational Science
Award sites (CTSAs), Practice Based Research Networks (PBRNs), NIH clinical
trials networks, and the Veteran’s Administration System.
All other aspects of these FOAs remain unchanged and
participation by other NIH Institutes continues, unaffected by this Notice.
