Section I. Funding Opportunity Description

Research Objectives

The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI)  is interested in supporting research across the translational spectrum for the development and evaluation of interventions targeting adherence to behavioral or pharmacologic regimens for the prevention and management of heart, lung, blood, and sleep conditions in order reduce risk of disease or reduce morbidity and mortality.  NHLBI is particularly interested in applications that a) focus on adherence as a strategy for reducing health disparities, b)  integrate an understanding of the multi-level determinants of adherence and social and economic contextual factors,  c) incorporate advances in behavioral science, mobile and connected health technology, and healthcare informatics, and/or d) focus on identifying and overcoming the barriers and facilitators for adherence to evidence-based guidelines by patients and practitioners.

 Additional examples of interest to NHLBI:

  • Studies investigating social determinants of health that contribute to disparities in adherence and health outcomes for heart, lung, blood, and sleep conditions. 

  • Investigations to understand the role of patient/provider communication in influencing medication adherence during transitions between health care settings

  • An investigation of behavioral economic approaches to optimize adherence to a physical activity regimen among patients with cardiometabolic risk factors or disease.

  • An investigation of factors that contribute to the persistence of adherence to physical activity recommendations across the lifespan.      

  • Studies to improve adherence in the implementation of evidence-based guidelines by practitioners, patients, and/or organizations across diverse populations and settings for heart, lung, blood, and sleep conditions.

  • Research on the implementation barriers and facilitators for adherence and the use of innovative technologies for adherence to evidence-based guidelines for heart, lung, blood, and sleep health.

  • Research that improves health equity by improving adherence to implementation of evidence-based guidelines across underrepresented populations.
