HEAL Initiative: Pain Management Effectiveness Research Network: Clinical Trial Planning and Implementation Cooperative Agreement (UG3/UH3 Clinical Trial Required)
The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to solicit cooperative agreement applications that propose clinical trials to test the comparative effectiveness of existing therapies for prevention or management of pain while reducing risk of addiction. Studies that inform providers and patients on best practices to manage acute or chronic pain in the primary care, emergency department, hospital or dental setting are priority areas of interest. The studies must evaluate methods and approaches to manage pain in these settings. Strategies might include safe use of medications, including appropriate use of opioids, biologics, devices or delivery systems, or multimodal approaches in controlled trials. Research testing behavioral interventions to manage pain will not be considered as high priority projects. The overall goal is to provide clinicians with robust evidence to best manage patients with acute or chronic pain in the primary care, emergency department, hospital or dental setting. Clinical trials will be conducted within the infrastructure of the HEAL Pain Effectiveness Research Network.
