PLEASE RESPOND TO THE PEER DISCUSSION BELOW.
By searching the Agency for healthcare Research and Quality grants database. I found one grant titled “Impact of Atypcial Antipsychotic Use on Health Care Utilization in the Elderly”(APARASU, ). This grant aims to describe the use of atypical antipsychotic agents in the elderly, overall number of elderly on this medication, and compare that usage to olanzapine, risperidone, and quetiapine. The age group in 65 years or older and the study hypothesis is that overall use of atypical antipsychotic use is more than typical antipsychotic use (APARASU, ).
In order to search for a grant like this one using grant databases is key. Grant.gov is one area to look and AHRQ is another. I have noticed that more healthcare grants are on AHRQ than on Grant.gov. Using the key terms used in my research article I was able to narrow it down to a few grants available. In order to apply you would need to complete the SF424 form which is the initial application, PHS 398 if the funding opportunity announcement requires it, RPPR which is the research performance progress report guide, and the noncompeting progress report for muli-year funded award (Grant application forms.2015). While this is specific to this grant it is important to fully understand the grant requirements, demographics, and hypothesis of the grant in order to ensure it aligns with your own.
