 Grants Available for Person-Centered Care Programs

Five grants of up to $10,000 each will be awarded to providers that are pursuing the “the goals of enhancing person-centered cultures and person-directed care,” according to a request for proposals from the Harvey Picker Center of Innovation and Applied Research in Long Term Care.

The center is seeking proposals that will advance the development of “exceptional person-centered long term care leadership and the deployment of innovative person-centered long term care practices,” the center says on its website.

Operated by Planetree, the Harvey Picker Center is a person-centered, long term care research, policy, and practice organization. The purpose of the center is to provide annual grants “to support research of innovative projects [that are] designed to facilitate successful initiatives that will advance the development of person-centered cultures and implementation of person-centered care across the spectrum of long term care settings and services.”

Each grantee will be expected to conduct a demonstration that includes a “robust dissemination plan of the measurable effects, affordability, and sustainability of the effort to advance person-centered cultures and/or the implementation of person-centered care.”

In addition, the project must be consistent with one or more of the Planetree or Picker Principles of Patient-Centered Care.

Also key to the proposals, the center notes, are those that identify and demonstrate the efficacy of “Always Events”—“procedural and substantive actions that should accompany every resident or patient experience.”

The deadline for emailing a letter of intent to submit a full proposal is July 15, 2013. The deadline for submitting the full proposal is Aug. 30, 2013.
