TCR into Frailty in Hospital Care

Eligible to:    Not-for-profits | Universities 

Funding:       $Undisclosed

Round:          Closes 30 January 2019

This Targeted Call for Research (TCR) aims to encourage research that addresses how frail persons can be supported to avoid hospitalisations, receive optimal care when admitted, and achieve the best health recovery outcomes, through integrated and coordinated in- and post-hospital interventions.

This TCR aims to support research that addresses the following question: How can frail persons be supported to safely avoid hospitalisations, receive optimal care when admitted and achieve the best health recovery outcomes through integrated and coordinated in- and post-hospital interventions?

NHMRC invites proposals for collaborative and multidisciplinary research, to avoid duplication of effort and to develop synergies between researchers, clinicians and health systems (community, residential and hospital care settings).

Aims of implementing the call are to:

  1. Encourage research across a range of disciplines and sectors to generate evidence for new or improved interventions and models of care to improve hospital outcomes and well-being of patients with frailty within elderly or other affected age groups. 
  2. Promote and advocate for the accelerated translation of evidence-based interventions including increasing the uptake of already existing evidence-based approaches to community, residential and hospital care settings and organisational and government policies, to improve hospital outcomes and well-being of patients with frailty within elderly or other affected age groups.
  3. Encourage research that develops tools to identify risk factors for ‘becoming frail’ to allow earlier decision making on treatment options for effective and cost effective models of care.
  4. Build Australia’s capability for research into the health and well-being of frailty within elderly or other affected age groups.
  5. Up to $5 million has been allocated to support a small number of research projects identified via this call. Funding will be provided to the top ranked applications until the allocated funding is expended. The number of projects funded therefore depends on the size of the grants.

    Funding will be available for any period of up to five years over the period 2019-2023.

Funding:       $0 to $1,500,000

Round:          Closes 04 December, 2019

Partnership Projects will support connections, within the Australian context, that translate research evidence into health policy and health practice, to improve health services and processes.

The scheme aims to support the work of healthcare policy and service delivery implementation agencies by supporting the translation of research outcomes into policy and practice and the evaluation of current policy and practice to identify gaps in knowledge. This type of research is normally conducted outside of universities and medical research institutes. It is for this reason that universities and medical research institutes are generally not eligible to partner with researchers through the scheme. Universities and medical research institutes can continue to participate as an Administering or Participating institution.

Partnership Projects will address the delivery, organisation, funding and access to services and programs that affect the health of Australians. Research may involve preventative programs, primary and community health care, hospitals, community services, the health workforce and infrastructure.
