CARE Award—Transforming care with the ATHNdataset.

ATHN is pleased to offer the ATHN CARE Award—Care through ATHNdataset Research and Evidence. This exciting research opportunity is for nurses, social workers, and other members of the HTC interdisciplinary care team. The CARE Award will give recipients the chance to use the power of real-world data in the ATHNdataset to answer research questions and ultimately, drive improvements in patient care.

The 2019 CARE Award recipients will be announced in October.

The ATHNdataset is a powerful dataset that might be used as a starting point to answer research questions. Previously funded CARE Award projects included research focused on:

  • The effect of socioeconomic status and urbanization on rates of self-infusion and bleed rate in adolescents with severe hemophilia
  • Opioid use in hemophilia

While furthering ATHN's mission to advance knowledge and transform care, the CARE Award provides a valuable career enrichment opportunity for dedicated HTC professionals.
