Additional Information -
The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to solicit applications to accelerate development, testing and implementation of evidence-based interventions—that are culturally and linguistically appropriate for NIH-designated populations that experience health disparities (HDPs) in the United States—to mitigate disparities in provision of care and treatment decisions, reduce susceptibility to chronic pain and improve patient outcomes. Expected outcomes of this initiative include evidence-based interventions that mitigate: 1) the effects of bias, stigma and discrimination at multiple levels, and/or 2) socioeconomic, environmental and other barriers to quality pain assessment, treatment and management. Studies that address multiple socioecological domains and levels of influence (e.g. organizational/institutional, community/neighborhood, societal) to advance health equity and mitigate health disparities in pain management are of higher priority. Studies must address research topics within the mission and research interests of participating NIH Institutes and Centers.
