Purpose

On December 18, 2017, NINR reissued PA-18-474 “Self-Management for Health in Chronic Conditions (R15 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)". The purpose of this Notice is to delete 3 objectives that infer clinical trial interventions.  The three deleted research objectives are below:

  • Use of pragmatic clinical trial designs
  • Develop behavioral interventions for use in varied clinical and community settings that test the effectiveness of self-management interventions for chronic conditions to reduce burden and disability, improve well-being, strengthen self-determination and participation in health care, and prevent illness and complications
  • Investigate intervention strategies that promote self-management across chronic conditions and their combinations in which they have not been adequately or previously tested 
 

Section I. Funding Opportunity Description

Research Objectives

 

Currently reads

  • Examine the influence of quality of life, burden of care, culture, ethnicity, age, family, or socioeconomic status on self-management across chronic conditions
  • Determine whether age-, gender-, and ethnically-related motivational factors are associated with improved self-management of chronic conditions in children
  • Investigate how the multiple co-morbidities and disabilities associated with aging affect the types of self-management strategies chosen as well as the effectiveness of different approaches
  • Studies supporting the use of decision-support and personalized interventions to increase adherence to treatment
  • Developing research programs that advance work in genetic outcome assessment for self-management measures and optimal self-management health outcomes
  • Designing novel technologies and social media that assist in monitoring symptom status, promoting health behavior modifications, and accessing/imparting health information
  • Incorporating community engaged research methodologies to include the use of social media, wireless monitoring, and home evaluations for self-management
  • Predictive research on who will benefit from self-management strategies to achieve person-driven, goal-oriented activities and care that facilitate improved outcomes
  • Use of pragmatic clinical trial designs
  • Studies that incorporate resilience as it relates to self-management such as resilience factors throughout early childhood, adolescence, early adulthood, old age
  • Dissemination and implementation research focused on self-management
  • Develop behavioral interventions for use in varied clinical and community settings that test the effectiveness of self-management interventions for chronic conditions to reduce burden and disability, improve well-being, strengthen self-determination and participation in health care, and prevent illness and complications
  • Strategies that utilize the built environment in improving self-management in chronic conditions
  • Investigate intervention strategies that promote self-management across chronic conditions and their combinations in which they have not been adequately or previously tested
  • Determine the influence of established approaches to self-management across chronic conditions (examples: improved self-efficacy, cognitive strategies, social support, coping skills
