Event Description

NCCAM hosted a pre-application teleconference on Tuesday, August 6, 2013, from 2–3:00 p.m. (EST) for potential applicants. The teleconference provided technical assistance to prospective applicants, including an overview of the research program and a discussion of the grant mechanisms used, information on preparing an application, and highlights of the review process. It also addressed participant questions.

Three Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs) for “Non-Pharmacological Approaches to Managing Pain and Co-Morbid Conditions in U.S. Military Personnel, Veterans, and their Families” have been published in the NIH Guide. They are issued by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Health Services Research & Development (HSR&D).

The purpose of these FOAs is to encourage research on the use of non-pharmacological approaches for managing pain and co-morbid conditions (e.g., post-traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injury, substance use disorder, depression, anxiety, and sleep disturbances) among U.S. military personnel and Veterans.

The three announcements issued are:

  1. Pilot and Feasibility Studies of Non-Pharmacological Approaches to Managing Pain and Co-Morbid Conditions in U.S. Military Personnel, Veterans, and their Families (R34), RFA-AT-14-004
  2. Clinical Trials and Interventional Studies of Non-Pharmacological Approaches to Managing Pain and Co-Morbid Conditions in U.S. Military Personnel, Veterans, and their Families (R01), RFA-AT-14-003
  3. Health Services and Observational Studies of Non-Pharmacological Approaches to Managing Pain and Co-Morbid Conditions in U.S. Military Personnel, Veterans, and their Families (R01), RFA-AT-14-005

The participating agencies encourage applicants to send a letter of intent, due by September 11, 2013.

Applications must be submitted electronically to Grants.gov. These must be received by 5 p.m. local time on October 11, 2013.
