Pre-Solicitation Notice for Bioethics and Disability Report Series

The National Council on Disability (NCD) will seek proposals for a report series on bioethics and disability.

The findings in these reports primarily serve to assist policymakers, including the White House and Congress, with the insight needed to make policy decisions designed to improve medical

credit:


decision-making regarding persons with disabilities.

The reports will also provide state legislatures, medical associations and educators, and persons with disabilities and those who support them, with an understanding of policy, legislation, and initiatives that impact their lives.

The report series will examine policies and practices related to the availability of medical interventions and life-saving medical care for persons with disabilities.

It will examine five specific areas where disability and bioethics intersect, with a focus on how a person’s disability impacts medical decisions, including decisions to provide life-saving care.

Topics are:
organ transplants; medical futility; genetic testing for fetal disability; Quality Adjusted Life Years Analysis (QALYS), and physician assisted suicide.

Each report will make findings on the current state of the topic and make recommendations for reform aimed at improving access to life-saving medical care for persons with disabilities, and improving the understanding of policy makers and the medical community on the value of the lives of persons with disabilities.

The estimated contract period is 10 months.

NCD will distribute its Notice of Funding Opportunity on May 4, 201 8. NCD expects interested parties to submit their responses by June 4, 201 8. Copies of the Notice of Funding Opportunity will be available on grants.gov and ncd.gov.
