Medical Simulators for Practicing Patient Care Providers Skill Acquisition, Outcomes Assessment and Technology Development (R01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

US Dept. of Health & Human Services: National Institutes of Health (NIH)

Deadline: The deadline for this grant has passed

Grant amount: Unspecified amount

Fields of work: Medical Education & Professional Training

Applicant type: Organizations

Funding uses: Non-clinical Biomedical

Location of project: United States

Location of residency: United States


The purpose of the Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to promote the assessment and further development of simulation technologies intended to improve patient safety and healthcare outcomes provided by practicing patient care providers and experienced (not trainee) physicians. The FOA seeks applications directed toward three areas of research:  

  • Skill Acquisition: to evaluate strategies and protocols for simulation-based methods for skill acquisition and maintenance by experienced clinicians;
  •  Outcomes Assessment: to assess the relationship of simulation-based assessments of skills demonstrated by experienced clinicians with the quality of clinical care delivered by those clinicians, and to identify strategies to increase the quality of simulation-based assessments of skills; and
  • Technology Development: to develop virtual coaches by incorporating intelligent technologies into existing simulators to provide adaptive, cognitive assistance to coach experienced practitioners in retaining, retraining and improving performance levels in the context of the user environment (and physiological system as appropriate).
