Grant/RFP Opportunities

Astellas Scientific & Medical Affairs
Call for Grant Applications (CGA)
December 18, 2014 (DUE JANUARY 15, 2015)

I. Background

Astellas is committed to supporting high-quality, evidence-based independent medical education (IME) that seeks to improve the overall safety and quality of patient care and treatment. The intent of this Call for Grant Application (CGA) is to allow organizations to submit grant applications for accredited independent education designed to close an independently identified healthcare gap, drive measureable improvements in knowledge, competence and performance of healthcare professionals, and advance patient health outcomes.

When responding to this CGA, please adhere to the following guidelines in addition to the established guidelines for the Astellas IME grant application process. All applications must be submitted online through the Astellas Grant Management System, accessible at www.astellasgrants.com. Grant applications submitted after the application deadline and incomplete grant applications will not be reviewed.

II. Purpose of CGA

The purpose of this CGA is to potentially close independently identified HCP knowledge and performance gaps associated with mitigating side effects by minimizing CNI dosing which can affect long term kidney graft viability. A thorough understanding of the current data, literature and practice patterns related to CNI minimization is important to understand as a personalized patient approach is preferable. Education should provide impactful strategies to reach a national audience through a satellite symposium at ATC 2015. In addition, education also should facilitate successful HCP-patient collaboration to increase patient understanding of the treatment plan rationale and limitations, establish appropriate and achievable goals of therapy, and enable periodic ongoing assessment of progress towards treatment goals.

I. Background
The mission of Pfizer Independent Grants for Learning & Change (IGL&C) is to partner with the global healthcare community to improve patient outcomes in areas of mutual interest through support of measurable learning and change strategies. "Independent" means that the projects funded by Pfizer are the full responsibility of the recipient organization. Pfizer has no influence over any aspect of the projects and only asks for reports about the results and the impact of the projects in order to share them publicly.

Through this CGA we encourage organizations to submit grant requests that, if funded, will support education in a specific disease state, therapeutic area, or broader area of educational need. When a CGA is issued, it is posted on the IGL&C website (www.pfizer.com/independentgrants) in the Grants Process section and is sent via e-mail to all registered users in our grants system.
