Grant of $50,000 to a USA investigator for research addressing the impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on emergency care physicians. Funding is intended for research to identify, evaluate, and implement strategies for enhancing, establishing, and expanding resilience, mental health, and wellness for emergency physicians.

The goal of this grant is to support emergency physicians as they struggle with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and providing optimal care under stressful conditions. Studies may include, but are not limited to:

  • Solutions to reduce stressors that affect the well-being, effectiveness and resiliency of emergency physicians
  • Approaches to create a supportive and healthy “well-workplace” for emergency physicians
  • Identification and solutions of factors that lead to burnout, moral injury and workplace stressors

Findings must be submitted for publication within 18 months of award date.

Each application will be reviewed by emergency medicine specialists who are actively involved in basic science and clinical research. Each application will be judged primarily on: (1) the significance of the project to emergency medicine, (2) the soundness of the research methodology, (3) the likelihood the project will be completed, and (4) innovation. The final funding decision will be made by the Emergency Medicine Foundation Board of Trustees and all decisions are final.

Funds may be used for materials and supplies and to provide salary support. Capital equipment expenditures (costing more than $5,000 and a life of over one year) must be justified in the budget.
