The Division of Renal Diseases is now accepting applications for 2015 Renal Staff Microgrants. The purpose of this funding program is to provide resources for staff in our outpatient clinic at the Center for Advanced Medicine at Barnes-Jewish-Hospital, the Forest Park dialysis unit and the Chromalloy dialysis unit to undertake new projects that improve the care and experience of our patients.
Successful proposals will feature an idea based on clinical experience within these units. Many diferent types of proposals might be suitable, and just a few examples include: Translating dietary advice into languages relevant to non-english speaking populations present in our clinics, improving spirit within the dialysis unit, and methods to encourage patients to bring in all of their medications once per month.
In this cycle, the Renal Division will fund up to three grants, one at each site. This grant will be funded at a maximum of $5,000 total direct costs per year.
