Purpose

On December 10, 2018, the NIH issued the following Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs): RFA-AT-19-004, RFA-AT-19-005, and RFA-AT-19-006.

To assist potential applicants with the above-referenced FOAs, NCCIH will host 3 pre-application webinars. The intent of the pre-application webinars is to provide overviews of the NCCIH-issued HEAL FOAs and to address questions from potential applicants. The webinars are optional and not required for application submission.

Information about accessing the webinars will be posted to the three links below and on the NCCIH website. You may also access the webinars via the NIH Videocasting and Podcasting website before the event begins. Prospective applicants are encouraged to submit their questions or comments regarding the FOAs to NCCIHHEAL@mail.nih.gov prior to and during the webinars. Prospective applicants with inquiries concerning the FOAs who are unable to participate in the Webinars are encouraged to view the recordings, which will be posted to the NIH VideoCast website. Recordings will be available on the VideoCast website for one year.

RFA-AT-19-004: HEAL: Pragmatic and Implementation Studies for the Management of Pain to Reduce Opioid Prescribing (PRISM) (UG3/UH3)

Webinar Information
Date: January 10, 2019
Time: 2:00-3:00 PM ET

This technical assistance VideoCast is designed to aid potential grantees for RFA-AT-19-004: HEAL: Pragmatic and Implementation Studies for the Management of Pain to Reduce Opioid Prescribing (PRISM) (UG3/UH3). This FOA encourages UG3/UH3 phased cooperative research applications to conduct efficient, large-scale pragmatic or implementation trials to improve pain management and reduce unnecessary use of opioid medications. Its goal is to support “real world” studies to evaluate the impact of implementing evidence-based guidelines or evidence-based pain management strategies into health care delivery on pain management outcomes as well as evaluate if they can reduce unnecessary opioid prescribing. This FOA requires that the intervention under study be embedded into multiple health care systems, “real world” settings. Trials will become part of and work with the NIH HCS Research Collaboratory supported through the NIH Common Fund.

RFA-AT-19-006: HEAL: Behavioral Research to Improve MAT (BRIM): Behavioral and Social Interventions to Improve Adherence to Medication Assisted Treatment for Opioid Use Disorders (R61/R33)

Webinar Information
Date: January 18, 2019
Time: 2:00-3:00 PM ET

This technical assistance VideoCast is designed to aid potential grantees for RFA-AT-19-006: HEAL: Behavioral Research to Improve MAT (BRIM): Behavioral and Social Interventions to Improve Adherence to Medication Assisted Treatment for Opioid Use Disorders (R61/R33). The purpose of this FOA is to solicit applications to examine the impact of adding behavioral and/or social interventions to Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) for persons with Opioid Use Disorders (OUD). Applications are encouraged for fully powered effectiveness and/or implementation studies that will examine whether combining MAT with behavioral and/or social interventions (e.g., mindfulness meditation, cognitive behavioral therapy, or multi-disciplinary rehabilitation) can improve adherence to MAT and, at the same time, prevent substance abuse relapse and improve long-term abstinence from illicit opioids.

RFA-AT-19-005: HEAL: Pragmatic Randomized Controlled Trial of Acupuncture for Management of Chronic Low Back Pain in Older Adults (UG3/UH3)

Webinar Information
Date: February 07, 2019
Time: 2:00-3:00 PM ET

This technical assistance VideoCast is designed to aid potential grantees for RFA-AT-19-005: HEAL: Pragmatic Randomized Controlled Trial of Acupuncture for Management of Chronic Low Back Pain in Older Adults (UG3/UH3). This FOA encourages UG3/UH3 phased cooperative research applications to conduct an efficient, large-scale pragmatic trial to evaluate the impact of, and strategies to best implement, acupuncture treatment of older adults (65 years and older) with chronic low back pain. This FOA requires that the intervention under study be embedded into multiple health care delivery systems, “real world” settings. Trials must be conducted across two or more health care systems (HCS) and will become part of and work with the NIH HCS Research Collaboratory
