Evaluation of Return to School Programs for Traumatic Brain Injury

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) is soliciting investigator-initiated research that conducts rigorous evaluation research to assess the effectiveness of Return to School programs after traumatic brain injury of all severities (e.g., mild, moderate and severe) in children. These programs have been developed to provide teachers, medical staff, and parents with guidance on how best to return a child to school after a traumatic brain injury.

 

NCIPC invites applications that propose to evaluate existing school-based programs that:

·         have specific pathways for care for children across all TBI severity and injury mechanisms;

·         include children from elementary through high school;

·         have available data on academic, health, and social outcomes; and

·         are ready for rigorous evaluation.

Funds are available for applicants to conduct such studies, in partnership with a Return to School program and a comparison school program, to help expand and advance our understanding about what works in managing traumatic brain injury in children.

The application closes on April 30, 2019. For specific questions regarding this funding opportunity, please contact Marcienne Wright (lxv8@cdc.gov). Thank you for your continued partnership on this important public health issue.
