Notice of Special Interest: Leveraging Existing and Accessible Datasets for Implementation Research Strategies and Testing - LEAD FIRST
The goal of this Notice of Special Interest (NOSI) is to encourage research that maximizes the utility of local-level community datasets by surfacing community insights to inform D&I research which can lead to actionable and sustainable change in communities. This NOSI promotes the use of existing and accessible datasets to inform community-engaged dissemination and implementation (D&I) research on heart, lung, blood and sleep conditions (HLBS) to advance health equity. The NOSI encourages applications for D&I research that use existing community-level datasets as well as community insights to:
- Hone in on HLBS conditions that are of high priority for the community, and
- Hypothesize barriers and facilitators that could impact the uptake & sustainability of evidence-based interventions (EBIs) for these HLBS conditions, and/or
- Select, develop and test D&I strategies based on community context.
This NOSI is inspired by lessons learned through recent NIH community-engaged research efforts such as CEAL, RADx UP and ComPASS as well as the NHLBI workshop on "Advancing the science of community-engaged health disparities research". In addition, the National Academy of Medicine’s conceptual model, “Achieving Health Equity and Systems Transformation through Meaningful Community Engagemen”" informs this NOSI. A key insight from these efforts is that the many existing and accessible datasets which capture data on the local/county/zip code or census tract-level provide researchers with an opportunity (1) to leverage these existing local-level datasets in the design and development of D&I research projects and (2) to meaningfully engage communities in the research process by providing community context and insights on the data that can lead to local level change to reduce health disparities.
This notice applies to due dates on or after February 5, 2024 and subsequent receipt dates through January 7, 2027. This NOSI expires on January 8, 2027; thus no applications will be accepted on or after January 8, 2027.
