Transthyretin Amyloid Cardiomyopathy (ATTR-CM) Nurse Navigator Competitive Grant Program

Funding Agency:
Pfizer Inc.

Pfizer Global Medical Grants (GMG) supports 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 Pfizer’s medical and/or scientific strategies. Pfizer’s GMG competitive grant program involves a publicly posted Request for Proposal (RFP) that provides detail regarding a general area of interest, sets timelines for review and approval, and uses an internal Pfizer review process to make final grant decisions. Organizations are invited to submit an application addressing the practice gaps as outlined in the specific RFP.

The diagnosis of ATTR-CM is complex and often requires patients to undergo many diagnostic procedures with multiple specialists. The nurse navigator is an important member of the healthcare team who provides care in a highly supportive and personal manner and helps to guide and support patients and their families through the patient diagnostic and treatment journey.

Projects that will be considered for funding will focus on supporting the development of nurse navigator programs, including training, in order to improve the quality of care for ATTR-CM patients.
