This announcement solicits applications for the Rural Health Research Dissemination Cooperative Agreement, formerly known as the Rural Research to Diverse Audiences Cooperative Agreement. The purpose of the Rural Health Research Dissemination Program is to disseminate and market policy-oriented information for use by diverse audiences such as rural stakeholders at national, state, and community levels and policy decision-makers to inform and raise awareness of issues regarding policy implications, access, quality and status of health care delivery, services, and management on behalf of rural communities. Key policy issues cover a variety of policy-oriented topics such as, but not limited to, access to health care for the under- and uninsured, health care quality and outcomes, home health, rural health clinics, racial and ethnic disparities, and many others. The information includes the body of research, as funded by ORHP, for all Rural Health Research Centers (RHRCs) and is designed to help decision-makers and policy analysts concerned with a variety of rural health issues at national, state, and community levels better understand the problems rural communities face in assuring access to health care and promoting good health for their members. While RHRCs disseminate their own analyses, rural audiences need and benefit from summary information on the entire body of work as funded by the Office of Rural Health Policy (ORHP) for all RHRCs.
This is a four year activity. At the end of each year, the progress report submitted to the ORHP Research Coordinator should include an evaluation for applicable metrics to determine the impact of the annual project activities. Throughout the entire project period, the Rural Health Research website and the Listserv must be developed and kept up-to-date by adding newly funded ORHP research projects and including changes in status of previous year’s projects (e.g., from newly funded research to a published journal article or report).
