AHRQ Grants for Diagnostic Error // funding for writing

Thanks all for these ideas ... any thoughts about support for writing. For example:


This new, free article from BMJQS on technology, cognition and error



at the end states:


“This work was supported by funding from NHMRC Program grant 568612 and the NHMRC Centre for

Research Excellence in E-health.”


How does the support for getting papers exploring foundational ideas, narrative evidence reviews, “proof of concept” studies and other structured “thinking” developed for peer reviewed dissemination come about? The rigor the funders could bring to the process may help with the quality of such ruminations, don’t folks agree?

I have had some recent discussions with CRICO Corp. and they accept grants for smaller practices.  

See correspondence below:



Thank you for your interest in our grants program and for providing some background information regarding the “Improve Diagnostic Reasoning” Program in the Pediatric Primary Care Setting.  Unfortunately, we are no longer accepting applications for the 2015 grant award cycle but I welcome you to visit our website at: https://www.rmf.harvard.edu/About-CRICO/Our-Community/CRICO-Grants to learn more about how you may apply for funding through our RFA (Request for Applications) process in the future. 


CRICO typically announces the RFA during summer with the Letter of Intent due early fall. Please be sure to check back periodically for this year’s updates including new priority areas and revised timeline dates.  You may also visit https://www.rmf.harvard.edu/About-CRICO/Our-Community/CRICO-Grants/GrantApplication#date for a description of the required application materials, instructions, budget templates and budget guidelines.


Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any additional questions.

I concur with Julianne’s observation.


I think it is great that AHRQ is providing this funding. The DXError community will certainly benefit from their support—as well patients and clinicians! 


However, academia and large NFP groups are not the only places to sow research seeds.

Independent researchers, private practices, consultants, free-thinkers who aren’t associated/employed with a large organization that are recognized as viable recipients of government grants, or researchers who affiliated are but cannot get their organizations to support their innovations and research interests  could benefit from funds to do research, produce materials, design and implement rapid cycle improvements, support and “feed” collaboratives in this field (and also in the broader space of patient safety in general).

Are there private foundations, scholarships, fellows programs, corporate entities, grant money opportunities for that community to tap into?

I would suspect there are – as I think some of patient advocacy group activities (ie PULSE New York) have benefited from assistance from the private foundation community to put on programs and such--but perhaps not to do research.

If this work takes a village -- I would say the broader village could use some cash to do the work. ;-)

 After reviewing the grant criteria, primary care practice groups that are not attached to a higher ed institution are not eligible.   Would love to see grant opportunities available to smaller settings to stimulate more diversified opportunities for all levels of providers interested in diagnostic error.
