About the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) is the lead Federal agency charged with improving the safety and quality of America’s healthcare system. AHRQ develops the knowledge, tools, and data needed to improve the healthcare system and help Americans, health care professionals, and policymakers make informed health decisions.

About the Opportunity

AHRQ seeks to support conferences that help to further its mission to produce evidence to make health care safer, higher quality, more accessible, equitable and affordable, and to work with partners to make sure that the evidence is understood and used.

The types of conferences eligible for support include:

1) Research Development – conferences where issues or challenges in the practice and delivery of health care are defined and a research agenda or strategy for studying them is developed

2) Research design and methodology – conferences where methodological and technical issues of major importance in the field of health services research are addressed or new designs and methodologies are developed

3) Dissemination and implementation – conferences where research findings and evidence-based information and tools are summarized, communicated, and used by organizations and individuals that have the capability to use the information to improve the outcomes, quality, access to, and cost and utilization of health care services

4) Research training, infrastructure, and career development – conferences where faculty, trainees, and students are brought together with stakeholders to develop, share or disseminate research products, experiences, curricula, syllabi, or training competencies (these types of conferences are not for the training of individuals in health services research)

Applications are due May 1, 2022.
