NIH-DoD-VA Pain Management Collaboratory

Funding Opportunity Announcements (LOI due 2/3/17; Applications due 3/3/17)

The NIH-DoD-VA Pain Management Collaboratory Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs) have been published in the NIH Guide. The overall goal of this initiative, jointly supported by the NIH, DoD, and VA, is to develop the capacity to implement cost-effective large-scale clinical research in military and veteran health care delivery organizations focusing on non-pharmacological approaches to pain management and other comorbid conditions.

The NIH-DoD-VA Pain Management Collaboratory Program, will:

  • establish a Coordinating Center to provide leadership and technical expertise in all aspects of research supporting the design and execution of high impact demonstration projects on non-pharmacological approaches for pain management and other comorbid conditions;
  • support the design and execution of a set of high-impact Demonstration Projects that will conduct pragmatic clinical trials on non-pharmacological approaches to pain management and comorbidities with patients in health care delivery systems that provide care to military personnel, veterans and their families;
  • make data, tools, best practices, and resources from these and other projects available to facilitate a research partnership with health care delivery systems that provide care to military personnel, veterans and their families

This funding initiative includes two funding announcements:

  1. RFA-AT-17-002: NIH-DoD-VA Pain Management Collaboratory-Coordinating Center (U24)

    The purpose of this FOA is to solicit applications for a Coordinating Center (CC) to provide national leadership for the NIH-DoD-VA Pain Management Collaboratory Program on non-pharmacological approaches to pain management and comorbidities in U.S. military personnel, veterans and their families.

  2. RFA-AT-17-001: NIH-DoD-VA Pain Management Collaboratory-Pragmatic Clinical Trials Demonstration Projects (UG3/UH3)

    The purpose of this FOA is to solicit UG3/UH3 phased cooperative agreement research applications to conduct efficient, large-scale pragmatic clinical trial Demonstration Projects within the NIH-DoD-VA Pain Management Collaboratory on non-pharmacological approaches to pain management and other co-morbid conditions in U.S. military personnel, veterans and their families. Studies need to be conducted within healthcare systems that serve military, veterans and their families.
