Purpose: The UCLA Clinical and Translational Science Institute, the Southern California Clinical and Translational Science Institute, and the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services (LAC DHS) are again partnering to develop and test interventions to enhance quality, efficiency and patient-centeredness of care provided by the LAC DHS. This solicitation requests letters of intent that describe ideas for such programs from which formal applications for funding will be selected.
This program does NOT support projects that:
Eligibility: Awards will be made to research teams consisting of investigators from UCLA and/or USC working closely with investigators and staff members from DHS to design and conduct the pilot project. Multisite collaboration is strongly encouraged. All USC and UCLA faculty members in any series (tenured/non-tenured) including adjunct and professional research series may apply. Participating CTSIs and DHS will work with applicants to help them assemble research teams to conduct their pilot projects (see below).
Review: LOIs will be reviewed by representatives of the participating CTSIs and the DHS for potential to improve quality, efficiency and patient centeredness of care within the LAC DHS delivery system. Applicants should describe how the proposed research contributes to DHS delivery system goals, and its potential for/relevance to large-scale implementation within DHS and dissemination of findings more broadly. Projects that adhere to the criteria outlined above will be most strongly considered to proceed with a full proposal.
