Emergency Physician Wellness Research Grant

Emergency Medicine Foundation (EMF)

Agency: Foundation

GrantWatch ID #199655

Grant Description

Grant of $50,000 and in-kind support to a USA investigator for research addressing the impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on emergency care physicians. Funding is intended for research to create and implement strategies for improving resilience, mental health, and wellness for emergency physicians.

The goal of this grant is to support emergency physicians as they struggle with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and providing optimal care under stressful conditions. Studies may include, but are not limited to:

  • Solutions to reduce stressors that affect the well-being, effectiveness and resiliency of emergency physicians
  • Approaches to create a supportive and healthy “well-workplace” for emergency physicians
  • Identification and solutions of factors that lead to burnout, moral injury and workplace stressors

EMF encourages application partnerships between research universities and community emergency departments.

Abstract Presentation:

Awardees are required to present their work at the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) Scientific Assembly/Research Forum immediately following the completion of the award. At the time of submission, abstracts must not have been accepted for publication in any journal. Also, abstracts may not be presented at any U.S. nationwide emergency medicine meeting or major international emergency medicine meeting prior to the ACEP Scientific Assembly. Presentation at non-emergency medicine meetings is allowed after presentation at ACEP. 

Grantee Workshop:

Grantees are expected to attend a grantee workshop in Bethesda, MD. The workshop is designed to bring together EMF grant recipients to present their progress and discuss any problems they may be facing. Senior researchers and faculty will be available to help solve problems, such as enrollment efforts, managing staff and life-work balance. NIH program officers participate in this workshop to discuss funding opportunities, provide research career advice and network with the grantees. Travel expenses will be reimbursed by the Emergency Medicine Foundation.

Funds may be used for materials and supplies and to provide salary support. Capital equipment expenditures (costing more than $5,000 and a life of over one year) must be justified in the budget.
