NIDCD Research On Hearing Health Care

Submission Date: February 24, 2015

Award Ceiling: $1,400,000

This funding opportunity announcement from NIH calls for research to increase accessible and affordable hearing health care. The overarching emphasis is on the acquisition of knowledge that can be translated into new or enhanced approaches for hearing health care (HHC). Applications should be focused on delivering better healthcare access and outcomes and should seek solutions that are effective, affordable and deliverable to those who need them. Research is needed to develop new and/or test innovative adaptations of current approaches and practices. These adaptations should be implementable and sustainable in clinical and community practice settings beyond the research environment and may have the potential to address disparities in health care. Research applications may address HHC in the context of a medical model as well as a psychosocial model of hearing loss. Outcomes research and health services research related to accessible and affordable HHC are also responsive to this FOA.
