Equity-Focused Dissemination and Implementation Mini-Grants for Nurses

As front-line health care providers, nurses play a pivotal role in implementing health interventions and policies directly to patients and communities. These mini-grants provide up to $2,000 to enable nurses affiliated with the URMC Clinical Nursing Research Center to develop, strengthen, or evaluate equity-focused dissemination and implementation (EQ-DI) research. Dissemination and implementation research generates scientific knowledge on how to effectively translate and use evidence-based practices, interventions, and policies in real-world settings like hospitals and communities. EQ-DI applies an equity lens to this process by prioritizing health equity when conceptualizing, developing, and evaluating dissemination and implementation activities, strategies, and outcomes.
