State Dementia Care Research Center (U54 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

Funding Agency:
National Institutes of Health

This Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) invites applications for a State Dementia Care Research Center (henceforth Center) which aims to ultimately improve care for persons living with dementia (PLWD) and their caregivers/care partners by building a research evidence base that can be used to improve dementia care coordination, integration, and care transitions in community settings, as well as inform policymaking. With recognition of the differences in provision, coverage, and access to Alzheimer's disease (AD) and Alzheimer's disease-related dementias (ADRD) care across the nation, this infrastructure resource will support research on social services and health systems within states. Specifically, the new resource will: (1) invite research on AD/ADRD care coordination, integration, and transitions within states; (2) foster the creation and integration of data on home and community-based services and health care data within states; and (3) support the dissemination of findings to stakeholders, the public, and policymakers. The Center will directly address AD/ADRD research implementation milestones on care integration with emphasis on healthcare disparities and policy by creating a consortium of scholars who will study AD/ADRD care coordination across settings, accounting for state-level and sub-state-level heterogeneity in provision, coverage, and access to services.
