Acute care physical therapy has undergone a transformation in practice, in large part due to an improved understanding of PT practice patterns that improve patient outcomes. Still, many questions remain unanswered regarding the most effective interventions in acute and intensive care, and further research is urgently needed to gain further understanding of these issues.
This session will focus on initiatives sponsored or funded by the Academy of Acute Care Physical Therapy to support research relevant to acute care physical therapist practice. The speakers will review the primary components of a research grant and strategies for answering these sections. They will detail objectives of 3 initiatives supported by the academy: seed grants, biostatistical consultations, and Foundation for Physical Therapy research grants. Reviewers will emphasize features of a successful application, while past awardees will relate how the experience assisted with completion of their research project. For the final portion of the session, attendees will break into small groups to discuss each initiative in detail and respond to specific questions on applications under development.
Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:
1. Recognize how key features of a grant proposal correspond to review criteria, and identify elements that improve the likelihood of success.
2. Identify funding mechanisms that may be suitable for your research project.
3. Evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of a research proposal.
4. Plan an outline for a research study.
