Research Approaches to Improve the Care and Outcomes of People Living with Spina Bifida

Funding Agency:
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

The purpose of this funding opportunity is to identify health care and clinic practices that are associated with the best outcomes for people living with spina bifida (SB) and to communicate and encourage adoption of best practices by SB clinics including providing needed educational/informational resources for the SB patient and provider communities, health care professionals, families, and educators.

Component A: Expand the work of the Spina Bifida Collaborative Care Network (CCN) to identify and encourage rapid adoption of best practices based on available evidence for care for persons with SB.

Component B: The National Spina Bifida Patient Registry (NSBPR) will collect and improve data quality of longitudinal data on children and adults with SB in order to identify health care and clinic practices that are associated with the best outcomes for people living with SB.

Component C: Implement and evaluate the Urologic Management to Preserve Initial Renal Function Protocol for Young Children with Spina Bifida (UMPIRE Protocol). This iterative protocol aims to manage the urinary system in infants and young children so that their initial normal kidney function is preserved as much as possible.

Only one application per institution (normally identified by having a unique DUNS number) is allowed for each component.
