The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) has announced a new funding opportunity. 

The purpose of this FOA is to identify strategies to engage stakeholders through shared decision making that can be used to effectively implement interventions specific to health care delivery systems, clinicians, and/or patients that focus on the reduction of racial/ethnic healthcare disparities in under-resourced settings.  The effective strategies will incorporate the translation, dissemination, and implementation of patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR) findings for racial/ethnic minority populations.  

Successful applicants are required to demonstrate an ability to leverage the capacities of relevant and diverse stakeholders in their strategies to reduce healthcare disparities in under-resourced settings.

Applications are due no later than July 31, 2013 at 5:00PM Eastern time. For more information, please visit the FOA posting on the NIH website.
