Pharmacy Resident Practice-Based Research Grant

Sponsored by the ASHP Foundation
The 2015-2016 application cycle is now closed. Please sign up for the ASHP Foundation E-news for information about the next offering of the Pharmacy Resident Practice-Based Research Grant.

This research grant program supports practice-based research related to the ASHP/ASHP Foundation Pharmacy Practice Model Initiative (PPMI) or Ambulatory PPMI that is conducted by residents in ASHP-accredited pharmacy residency programs or by residents in pharmacy residency programs that have submitted an application for ASHP accreditation. A secondary goal of the program is to develop pharmacy residents’ research skills while fostering development of mentoring relationships with more experienced senior investigators.

The proposed practice-based research must be consistent with the vision, mission and strategic priorities of the ASHP Foundation. The PPMI is driven by a set of assumptions, beliefs and recommendations from the November 2010 ASHP/ASHP Foundation PPMI Summit and the recommendations from the March 2014 ASHP Ambulatory Conference and Summit. Submission of studies that evaluate the pharmacy practice models in hospitals, health systems and other ambulatory settings–such as the  utilization of technology, role delineation changes for the pharmacists and non-pharmacists, improving innovative patient care opportunities for pharmacists, or evaluating outcomes–is invited. Applicants can find the recommendations from the PPMI Summit and the Ambulatory PPMI in the PAI Resource Center

Clinical studies, including pharmacokinetics research and medication effectiveness studies are not supported through this program.

Grants will be awarded to pharmacy residents to provide funding for specific practice-based research related to advancing pharmacy practice models and are not intended for long-term support of research programs.
