AHRQ seeks study proposals to conduct research on domestic violence against women

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality is seeking proposals to conduct research on the outcomes, effectiveness, and cost-effectiveness of programs for early identification and treatment of domestic violence against women. The goals of this Request for Applications (RFA) are to develop new knowledge in the prevention of domestic violence, improve the identification of female patients at risk, and evaluate outcomes and the effectiveness of health care interventions designed to treat domestic violence victims. This RFA is part of the Secretary of Health and Human Services' FY 2000 initiative on violence against women.

AHRQ expects to award up to $1.0 million in fiscal year 2000 to support the first-year total costs of approximately one to three projects under this RFA. Letters of intent are requested by March 24, 2000; applications must be received by April 27, 2000.

The Agency encourages partnerships between health plans, service providers, researchers, and community-based programs. Projects funded under this RFA may address any health care issues relating to domestic violence, including the adoption and implementation of protocols and practice guidelines, routine screening for domestic violence, the ability to provide treatment and safety planning, and followup of victims.

The RFA, "Violence Against Women: Evaluating Health Care Interventions" (RFA HS-00-006), was published February 16, 2000, in the NIH Guide to Grants and Contracts and is available online at: Print copies of the RFA and grant application kits are available from AHRQ's Publications Clearinghouse.
