Through the generosity of our supporters, Children’s Hospital Foundation funds research that has a strong focus on translational outcomes and leads to faster diagnoses, better treatments and ultimately cures for some of the most devastating childhood illnesses and injuries.

Current grant rounds:

The 2020 Children’s Hospital Foundation Health Services Research (HSR) Stimulus Grant Round will be funding up to 5 Stimulus Project Grants which include financial assistance of $80,000 for project-support costs and up to $20,000 to fund health services research support. The Children’s Hospital Foundation is calling for ideas at all maturity levels in the health services research field. Grant recipients will be offered additional financial assistance to engage expert health services research support for their proposal. This aims to motivate clinician researchers to undertake high quality HSR; and provide ongoing mentoring and support, thereby building knowledge and strengthening innovation capacity.

All proposals should describe how the research will improve the way healthcare is delivered and maximise value for patients by ensuring systems and processes are effective and efficient. The measure for success is improved value-based care with value defined as health outcomes achieved versus the cost of achieving these.
