AACN and NIDA Announce New Call for Evidence-Based Practice Proposals on Substance Use Disorder Treatment

Published September 26, 2018

AACN is pleased to announce availability of a National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) mentored training award to support a graduate student (Master's, Doctoral, or Post-Doctoral) from an accredited program (or a PhD program) at an AACN member school. The grant will support an evidence-based project (EBP) focusing on Substance Use Disorders (SUD) treatment practices in health care. One award of up to $10,000 is available for the selected awardee, who will develop a project that will advance research, dissemination, and adoption of evidence-based SUD treatment practices through a plan that:

  • Provides the student with a mentored opportunity to learn about key areas of SUD and SUD treatment strategies through a systematic literature review, attendance at conferences and workshops, and interaction with leading experts.
     
  • Provides the student with experience that fosters interest in a clinical career focused on evidence-based management of SUD or potentially securing an NIH career development or other grant opportunity related to research in the field of SUD. 

  • Provides the student with education and experience in effective dissemination of research findings and implementation/adoption of research in clinical practice.

Applicants are encouraged to develop projects that address or improve current gaps in the dissemination of research findings or implementation/adoption of evidence-based treatment practices. The awardee also will have an opportunity to present project results via poster at an AACN conference. Click here to apply today. The application deadline is Tuesday, October 30, 2018.
