AUMC PFCC IMPACT AWARD
The Center for Patients and Families, with support from the
Office of the CEO, is pleased to announce a call for proposals for the AUMC PFCC IMPACT Award. We are pleased
that a special PFCC Foundation fund exists to support this important work. Please note the application submission deadline is January 12, 2018.
An overarching concept in creating partnerships with
patients and families is bringing health care teams together to work in the
areas of Respect, Communication, and Collaboration. The PFCC IMPACT Award
focuses on rewarding innovation through inter-professional participation. The
goal is to create sustainable patient- and family- centered care initiatives,
supported by preliminary data that impacts the patient experience and
ultimately, health outcomes. The award seeks to support exciting projects in
new areas of creative initiatives as well as those that foster novel or unique collaborations.
The total amount designated for the PFCC IMPACT Award is
$5,000. The IMPACT
project is to be completed within one year or less.
SCOPE OF AWARD:
The PFCC Impact Award can support a variety of expenses,
including by not limited to project development costs, materials and supplies,
and equipment. Distribution of funds will be subject to all State/AUMC
guidelines. The PFCC IMPACT Award/s will be announced during the annual AUMC
PFCC Conference activities, January 2018.
Full-time AUMC staff and faculty are eligible. Proposals
must involve inter-professional teams (at least two or more). Teams are
encouraged to include residents/students from any of the Schools as well as
patients and families. (The Center for Patients and Families can assist with
