Addressing Caregiver Symptoms through Technological Tools (R01, R21 Clinical Trial Optional)

Funding Agency:
National Institutes of Health

The purpose of the Funding Opportunity announcement is to encourage grant applications from the scientific community that develop and test tools to address symptoms in caregivers.  The key to this announcement is the focus on the caregiver, regardless of patient symptoms or conditions. Research is needed to enhance symptom recognition and assessment in caregivers, and to promote technological strategies to alleviate distress in caregiver symptoms. These studies are needed to advance the science related to caregiver experience of symptoms, caregiving contexts that promote these symptoms, and viable tools to address the symptoms experienced by caregivers.

Although this funding opportunity uses the R01 grant mechanism, it runs in parallel with a program announcement of identical scientific scope, PA-19-024, which uses the R21 grant mechanism.
