Independent Medical Education Grants: Management of Endometriosis

Funding Agency:
Pfizer Inc.

Pfizer Global Medical Grants (GMG) and Myovant Sciences support 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 our joint medical and/or scientific strategies.

Pfizer GMG and Myovant Sciences’ aligned 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 review process to make final grant decisions. Organizations are invited to submit an application addressing the knowledge gaps as outlined in the RFP.

For all independent medical education grants, the grant requester (and ultimately the grantee) is responsible for the design, implementation, and conduct of the independent initiative supported by the grant. Pfizer / Myovant must not be involved in any aspect of project development, nor the conduct of the independent education program.

Projects that will be considered for support will focus on comprehensive educational initiative at the 2022 ACOG Annual Clinical & Scientific Meeting in May 6-8, 2022 in San Diego, CA, including, but not limited to:

• The role of GnRH antagonists as a treatment for endometriosis highlighting clinical differentiators and long-term treatment results.

• The systemic, chronic nature of EM and that it’s an estrogen driven disease associated with pain, comorbidities, and economic burden

• The progressive nature of EM and that delays in diagnosis have a negative impact on clinical outcomes, including how clinical and noninvasive tools facilitate earlier diagnosis and medical intervention (prior to surgery)

• Review the clinical impact of utilizing medical therapy and explore opportunities for concurrent use with surgery, including implications of repeated surgery

The successful applicant will propose projects that actively engage the learner, employ innovative learning technologies, provide opportunities for learner exchange and include metrics (needs assessment and outcomes data that allows for meaningful assessment of program impact).
