Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation: Investigator Initiated Research
http://www.apsf.org

The Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation (APSF) is accepting Letters of Intent (LOIs) to support clinical and educational research and development in anesthesia patient safety. Example areas of research interest include, but are not limited, to:

  • Studies that will yield results that directly increase patient safety, improve patient outcomes, and/or decrease incidence or severity of complications, morbidity, or mortality; 
  • Studies that address peri-anesthetic safety problems for relatively healthy patients; 
  • Studies that are broadly applicable to large numbers of patients AND that promise improved methods of patient safety with a defined and direct path to implementation into clinical care;  
  • Innovative methods of education and training to improve patient safety; 
  • The use of information technology to enhance perioperative patient safety

Any qualified member of a sponsoring institution (hospital, university, clinic, etc.) may apply. Only one person may be listed as the Principal Investigator (PI), and all other co-investigators must be limited. There is no limit to the number of applications that may be submitted per individual or institution, but APSF will award funding for one proposal per PI in each funding cycle. Up to 15% of total direct costs may be included, but cannot exceed the total $150,000 maximum.

LOI Deadline: February 12, 2018 at 5:00pm EST. Invited full applications due early August 2018 with award notifications made by October 2018. Guidelines: https://www.apsf.org/grants_application_instructions.php
