Addressing Knowledge Gaps on Biosimilar Use in Inflammatory Conditions

Funding Agency:
Pfizer Inc.

Pfizer Global Medical Grants (GMG) supports the global healthcare community’s independent initiatives (e.g., research, quality improvement, or education) to improve patient outcomes in areas of unmet medical need that are aligned with Pfizer’s medical and/or scientific strategies. Pfizer’s GMG competitive grant program involves a publicly posted general Request for Proposal (RFP) that provides detail regarding a general area of interest, sets timelines for review and approval, and uses an internal Pfizer review process to make final grant decisions. Organizations are invited to submit an application addressing the knowledge gaps as outlined in the specific RFP.

Projects that will be considered for Pfizer support will focus on educational programs for healthcare professionals (HCPs) with focus on Biosimilars included but not limited to:

• Increasing understanding of biosimilar concepts and implementing practical approaches to educate patients and HCPs

• Overcoming barriers to switching to biosimilars by HCPs

• Improving the ability of healthcare professionals to discuss biosimilar options with their patients as part of shared-decision-making

The intent of this RFP is to encourage organizations to design educational programs to reach HCPs that treat inflammatory conditions, including gastroenterologists, rheumatologists, primary care practitioners, pharmacists, nurse practitioners (including infusion nurses), and physician assistants.
