New Research Funding Opportunity: Societal Costs of Severe-Profound Hearing Loss

We are excited to announce a new Call for Research Proposals: Planning for a Study on the Societal Costs of Hearing Loss. American Cochlear Implant Alliance will partner with the American Hearing Research Foundation (AHRF) to offer funding for a $25,000 research grant on the societal costs of deafness. The proposal due date is August 15, 2017.

It is intended that the grant recipient will explore and recommend a detailed plan for updating the seminal Project HOPE study published in 2000 (Mohr PE et al, The Societal Costs of Severe to Profound Hearing Loss in the United States, International Journal of Technology Assessment in Health Care, 2000;16(4):1120-35). This grant is intended to support the planning of a future study to address societal costs of severe-profound hearing loss. The proposed study should review and summarize comparable studies completed for other interventions and the impact on healthcare access. Issues that should be considered include (but are not be limited to):

  • Population to be studied (adults, children or both)
  • Data collection plan
  • Method for demonstrating cost effectiveness
  • Personnel
  • Budget and timeline to undertake a future study

Submissions for this grant will be made via our partner, American Hearing Research Foundation, using their grant submission process. The research is described here:
