NOT-DC-20-007: Improving Outcomes for Disorders of
Notice of Special
Interest (NOSI) issued by the National Institute on Deafness and Other
Disorders (NIDCD) (see: https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOTDC-20-007.html)
This NOSI seeks to encourage effectiveness and health services research for improved
outcomes in the prevention and treatment of disorders of
hearing, balance, smell, taste, voice,
speech, and language.
NIDCD effectiveness research seeks to measure, evaluate,
and/or improve patient-centered
outcomes following intervention for communication disorders.
Effectiveness research seeks to
determine to what degree an intervention works in
patients/populations in general, real-world
settings, such as in diverse populations and diverse
provider and clinical practice settings.
Health Services Research examines the impact of the
organization, financing, and management
of health care services on the delivery, quality, cost,
access to and outcomes of such services,
including demographic, social, economic, and health system
factors as they relate to providing
preventive, screening, diagnostic, treatment and
rehabilitative services and patient outcomes
of care. Research may focus on any/all of the different
factors that impact access, utilization,
and quality as related to outcomes of health care services.
Applicants are encouraged to create collaborative teams
which may include clinical experts not
only in the traditional NIDCD mission areas, but also in
other medical specialties and health care
professions as well as experts in sociology, health
services, health outcomes, economics,
biostatistics, public health, health care financing and
organization, survey research,
psychometrics, epidemiology, and evaluation.
