MRFF – Primary Health Care Research Initiative - 2023 Primary Health Care Research Grant Opportunity
The Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) – 2023 Primary Health Care Research Grant Opportunity will provide grants of financial assistance to support Australian medical research and medical innovation projects that:
- evaluate the effectiveness and feasibility of new or existing best practice models of multidisciplinary care for patients with complex and chronic conditions in primary care
- address one or more of the priorities recommended to the Australian Government for the Strengthening Medicare Taskforce.
Two streams of funding are available based on the geographic location of the organisation undertaking the majority of the research:
- Stream 1: The organisation undertaking the majority of the research is based in any area according to the Modified Monash Model Locator (MM1-7)
- Stream 2: The organisation undertaking the majority of the research and Chief Investigator A and 50% or more of all Chief Investigators are primarily based in a rural, regional or remote area according to the Modified Monash Model Locator (MM3-7).
Applications to this grant opportunity must propose research that addresses one of the two streams of research.
The intended outcome of the research funded under this grant opportunity is to improve health and wellbeing of Australians with complex and chronic conditions through implementation of best practice care in a primary care setting.
This grant opportunity is being administered by NHMRC on behalf of the Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care.
