Research Grants for Preventing Violence and Violence Related Injury (R01) (RFA-CE-18-001)

Description: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) is soliciting investigator-initiated research that will help expand and advance our understanding about what works to prevent violence by rigorously evaluating primary prevention strategies, programs, and policies to address specific gaps in the prevention of teen dating violence, intimate partner violence, sexual violence, and youth violence. This initiative is intended to support the evaluation of primary prevention strategies, programs or policies that target universal or selected high-risk populations (i.e., populations that have one or more risk factors that place them at heightened risk for perpetration of violence). Funds are available to conduct such studies focused on preventing the perpetration of youth violence and/or teen dating/intimate partner/sexual violence as detailed elsewhere in this announcement.

Evaluation of Policies for the Primary Prevention of Multiple Forms of Violence (U01) (RFA-CE-18-002)

Description: NCIPC is seeking research proposals focused on rigorously evaluating previously or currently implemented federal, state, local, tribal, or organizational policies for impacts on multiple forms of violence, including child abuse and neglect, youth violence, intimate partner violence, sexual violence and/or suicide. The proposed research should evaluate the impact of a selected policy on reducing rates of at least two of these violence outcomes. Applicants are encouraged to assess the impact of the policy on as many violence outcomes that is feasible as well as risk and protective factors that are common to multiple forms of violence. The proposed research will add to the limited evidence base regarding the impact of policies on preventing and reducing multiple forms of violence by rigorously evaluating federal, state, local, tribal, or organizational policy approaches. A total of approximately $2.1 million is available.

Research on Improving Pediatric mTBI Outcomes Through Clinician Training, Decision Support, and Discharge Instructions (RFA-CE-18-003)

Description: The purpose of this research is to rigorously evaluate a clinical intervention in primary care and/or emergency departments to improve diagnosis, management, and treatment of pediatric mTBI using an experimental or quasi-experimental design.

Research to Evaluate Medication Management of Opioids and Benzodiazepines to Reduce Older Adult Falls (RFA-CE-18-004)

Description: The purpose of this research is to evaluate the effectiveness of medication tapering and/or discontinuation strategies to reduce falls and unintentional injury among older adults. The research will advance knowledge about how health professionals can improve prescribing practices for medications in which the risks may outweigh the benefits, contributing to falls, overdose, and other injuries in community dwelling older adults.
