Accelerating the dissemination of SUD research findings and encouraging the implementation of evidence-based practices in health care settings is a priority for NIDA and represents the core mission of the NIDA Blending Initiative.  This initiative uses collaboration between expert clinicians, clinical researchers, experienced trainers, and NIDA staff to rapidly disseminate research findings from NIDA’s vast scientific portfolio to a variety of stakeholders, including policy-makers, program administrators and frontline prevention and treatment providers.
SAHM has partnered with NIDA to fund training awards to support the development of expertise in substance use disorders (SUD) through completion of a Mentored experience and project focused on dissemination of SUD treatment research. The NIDA Mentored Training Award goals are: 1) to promote and improve knowledge of evidence-based SUD treatment among health care providers, 2) to promote dissemination of substance use disorder research findings, 3) to promote the adoption of evidence-based approaches in medical settings,  and 4) to facilitate the academic growth and development of future leaders in SUD management.
This award cannot be used to conduct basic or clinical research studies or trials. Awardees are to develop and execute a plan designed to increase their knowledge of SUD and SUD treatment and complete a project aimed at improving the dissemination and/or adoption of SUD research findings. Secondary data analysis may be completed in pursuit of these aims, provided the project proposed is eligible for IRB exemption and has a dissemination/adoption focus. Applications proposing non-exempt research involving human subjects that must be reviewed by an IRB under the requirements of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) regulations at 45 CFR part 46 will not be accepted.
Full details, including how to apply can be found on the SAHM website.
Completed applications are due by 11:00 p.m. CDT on Friday, March 31st
