FPTR-Funded Center on Health Services Training and Research (CoHSTAR) will hold the event, Workshop in Implementation Science and Health Services (WISH): Advancing Grant Writing Skills for Rehabilitation Researchers, in Washington, DC, May 18-20, 2022.
The Foundation for Physical Therapy Research’s (FPTR) longest ongoing research grant is now in its seventh year of annual funding. The Center on Health Services Training and Research (CoHSTAR) mission is to train rehabilitation professionals in health services research that informs rehabilitation practice, care delivery, and policy. Working towards this mission, CoHSTAR holds annual health services workshops to ensure health services research information is optimally disseminated to audiences.
This year, CoHSTAR’s health services workshop will take place at the American for Physical Therapy Association’s headquarters in Washington, DC, May 18-20, 2022 and will be open to rehabilitation researchers from all professions.
The Workshop in Implementation Science and Health Services (WISH): Advancing Grant Writing Skills for Rehabilitation Researchers, will have two tracks covering implementation science and health services research. Participants in each track will be assigned to mentored pods to discuss and critique draft research proposals.
The year-seven implementation science workshop is held in conjunction with the Learning Health Systems Rehabilitation Research Network (LeaRRn) and the American Occupational Therapy Foundation (ATOF).
CoHSTAR was established in 2015 with an initial FPTR grant of $2.5 million. Due to CoHSTAR’s ongoing success, FPTR increased funding, first in 2019 and again in 2020, effectively doubling the scope of the grant by investing an additional $1.25 million in funding. This funding was made possible through the support of our donors, including our lead Partner in Research, the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA). Learn more about CoHSTAR initiatives.
