The Heroes Implementation Research Scholar Award supports research that advances infection prevention through implementation science. Two awards of up to $40,000 each will be granted for a project period from January 1, 2017 to March 30, 2018.
The primary goals of this scholarship program are to promote research in implementation science, improve patient outcomes by championing for systemic adoption of infection prevention and control programs in healthcare settings, and highlight best practices in instituting this approach. Implementation science has been defined as research that creates new knowledge about how best to design, implement, and evaluate quality improvement initiatives.
