Following up their January notice of intent, AHRQ has released a Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) announcement for the Management of Substance Use Disorders (SUD) in Primary Care and Other Ambulatory Settings. The proposed NOFO announcement uses the R18 mechanism to support projects that develop and test strategies to improve the capacity of primary care and ambulatory settings to provide evidence-based, patient-centered care for people who misuse opioids and other substances.
AHRQ is interested in projects that build on recent research on effective treatments and effective models of care and that lead to sustainable changes in how SUD care is delivered in primary care and/or develop lasting partnerships between primary care and other care settings. Applications are due April 14, 2023. See below for the funding opportunity purpose.
