NINR Request for Information (RFI): Advancing Nursing Research in Climate and Health

Since its establishment in 2021, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Climate Change and Health Initiative has been supporting research to reduce climate-associated health threats across the lifespan and build health resilience in individuals, communities, and nations around the world, especially among those at highest risk to climate change hazards. The National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR) is an active participant in this NIH-wide initiative.

With nursing’s holistic, contextualized perspective to improve health, its focus on individuals and communities, and its commitment to health equity [1], nursing science has a major role to play in understanding and mitigating the impact of climate change on health. NINR is exploring additional efforts in this area. Through this RFI, NINR is seeking comments and testimonies from the extramural scientific community, professional societies, and the general public regarding research gaps in which nursing research can make a difference and/or provide a unique perspective.

Responses must be received by 11:59:59 pm (ET) on 11/03/2023 through the NIH web-based form: https://rfi.grants.nih.gov/?s=64873f3d81bd6e9ecc0d0382
