The National Multiple Sclerosis Society has announced new funding opportunities. They’re interested in funding topics related to health care delivery and policy research.
They want researchers to submit applications, proposing to investigate and answer some of the following questions:
- What is the comparative effectiveness of comprehensive care vs. usual care for patients with multiple sclerosis?
- What is the overall cost-effectiveness of current MS treatments, including disease-modifying therapy, symptom management, and rehabilitation?
- What are MS patients’ perspectives concerning priorities for their MS care, i.e., what they want and/or need?
- What are the optimal methodologies for including MS patients in the development of MS research, particularly health policy studies?
Investigators wishing to apply must submit a two-page letter-of-intent to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s online application portal by September 30th. Selected applicants will then be invited to submit a full application between November 1st, 2013-Janurary 8th, 2014.
