Broad ranges of educational approaches are included within the context of this FOA. Individual applications are expected to focus on the alcohol education area of Health Professions Education. This area of activity includes projects designed to support the science of dissemination of new knowledge acquired through alcohol research to a wide array of health professionals, both individuals currently practicing their professions and those in training for health professions. A broad definition of health professions is adopted, to include but is not limited to: social workers, occupational therapists, nurses, physicians, dentists, psychologists, pharmacists, counselors, and others involved in areas of physical, mental, and/or behavioral health services where target groups experience alcohol use disorders. Appropriate activities may include, but are not limited to, the development of courses, programs, curricula, and related materials designed to educate scientists, educators, service providers, and others about scientific advances in our knowledge of alcoholism, alcohol abuse, and alcohol-related problems (e.g., health-related complications with individuals who have diabetes and consume alcohol), and improve science literacy in this area. Activities and projects should attempt to meet the following criteria: 1) applicants are strongly encouraged to include members of the target health professions audience as consultants or in the planning process; 2) educational intervention innovations and materials should be adoptable and adaptable by educators in health profession training settings other than those where they have been initially pilot tested; 3) educational innovations should address relevance and relatedness to current and/or emerging standards for education in the target profession; 4) evaluation components must address outcomes and be conducted using appropriate types of research designs, instrumentation, procedures, sampling strategies, and plans for analyses; and 5) products developed under this mechanism may be shared with NIAAA for use and dissemination through its website, workshops, trainings, conferences, and presentations.

This (FOA) encourages applications from applicant organizations that propose creative and innovative Health Professions education programs in the mission area(s) of the NIAAA. The NIH Education (R25) grant mechanism is a flexible and specialized mechanism designed to foster the development of biomedical, behavioral, and clinical researchers through creative and innovative research education programs. The NIH encourages all proposed programs to foster the participation of individuals from racial and ethnic groups underrepresented in biomedical and behavioral research, individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds, individuals with disabilities, and women.

The proposed education research program may complement other, ongoing research training and education occurring at the applicant institution, but the proposed educational experiences must be distinct from those research training and research education programs currently receiving federal support. The R25 is not a substitute for an institutional research training program (T32) and can not be used to circumvent or supplement Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) mechanisms.
