The DAISY Foundation is encouraging nurses seeking to impact and improve treatment of patients with auto-immune diseases or cancer to apply for a research or evidence-based practice project grant awarded by the Foundation. The deadline to submit a letter of intent for a J. Patrick Barnes Grant is Wednesday, September 5, 2018.
The Foundation offers two types of grants: research grants of up to $5,000 for studies that involve clinical research that directly benefits patients and/or families; and evidence-based practice project grants of up to $2,000 that use patient-focused data to study and develop improved nursing practices.
Successful applicants may also apply for subsequent funding to share their findings at professional conferences. The Lynne Doll Grants for Dissemination of Findings will provide J. Patrick Barnes grantees with up to $2,000 for expenses and fees for attending or presenting at a professional conference. This program is named in memory of DAISY Foundation Board member Lynne Doll, who championed its research program.

The DAISY Foundation provides these grants to support registered nurses who
continually evaluate their practice, seek answers to clinical questions in an effort to improve their practice, and change their practice based on evidence and evaluation of that change. Nurses who have research/EBP experience, as well as those who do not have experience are encouraged to apply. Guidelines and grant applications are available at www.DAISYfoundation.org.
