The purpose of this initiative is to support Phase 2 clinical trials to develop and test strategies to increase the utilization of cardiovascular rehabilitation (CR) and pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) in eligible patients.
The objectives are to test novel promising approaches to increase use of
CR and PR overall, to reduce disparities in their utilization, and to document improvement in key clinical and patient-centered outcomes from CR and PR performed in either traditional or non-traditional settings.
Investigators with expertise in the areas of CR, PR, and implementation science should consider applying for this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA).
Collaborative investigations combining expertise in telehealth, internet-based interventions, behavioral modification, and other novel techniques for health-related interventions are encouraged.
