Evidence-based consensus guidelines published by experts in the management of disease are a critical fiber of the healthcare fabric. Healthcare providers rely on guidelines to inform treatment decisions and insurance providers rely on guidelines to design formularies. Researchers compare new therapeutic or procedural interventions to standard-of-care practice guidelines in randomized controlled trials. However, many diseases still lack up-to-date guidelines, resulting in wide variability in practice patterns, and leaving many patients without access to treatment they need. Evidence-based guidelines and expert consensus best practice recommendations are lacking for many pediatric skin diseases.
To help address this need, PeDRA is calling for submissions to its 2021 Consensus Grants program, which will provide up to $25,000 of support to the creation of consensus guidelines, best practice recommendations, or consensus treatment plans for the treatment of diseases in the field of pediatric dermatology in the United States and/or Canada. Interested teams are invited to submit proposals to create consensus guidelines or best practice recommendations for a disease of their choice, using a rigorous methodology of their choice. However, priority will be given to proposals that address diseases for which contemporary guidelines do not exist, and which use established methodology.
- Up to $25,000 for one year to support the creation of consensus guidelines or best practice recommendations for the management of diseases in the field of pediatric dermatology
- Applications due Thursday, December 2, 2021
