Mary K. Logan Research Grant for 2020 and Past Recipients
The Mary K. Logan Grant Program seeks to stimulate and fund studies that will improve patient safety and help to ensure that healthcare technology promotes positive patient and healthcare provider outcomes.
Research projects should seek to:
- Yield results that can be applied or used by other healthcare organizations.
- Improve methods of patient safety with a defined and direct path to implementation into patient care settings.
- Study problems for which deeper understanding is needed before effective solutions can be applied.
Topics can vary widely—focusing on, for example—device technology, processes, sterilization, dialysis, healthcare technology management and other issues.
Priority will be given to topics that do not have other available sources for funding. Junior investigators with strong mentorship are encouraged to apply. The grant program is named after Mary K. Logan, AAMI’s former president and CEO who championed patient safety initiatives.
Proposals that are not looked upon favorably include those that:
- Seek to develop products or equipment for commercial purposes.
- Seek to create patient safety education curricula or that propose methods that do not include a rigorous evaluation of content validity and/or benefit, and
- Whole animal studies. These may be considered but only in the rare circumstance in which an alternative testing of a critical patient safety hypothesis in human studies is not feasible.
All proposals should have well thought out ideas and a clear hypothesis or research plan. They should demonstrate the clear relationship of the work to patient safety and describe the methodology that will result.
