Welcome to the RACGP online grant application service, powered by SmartyGrants.
The HCF Research Foundation and the RACGP Foundation have established a research grant for the purpose of funding research into health services issues of relevance to general practice.
The HCF Research Foundation is a not-for-profit charitable trust established to encourage health service research for the benefit of all Australians, with objectives to assist in the improvement of prevention, treatment and cure of diseases. The focus of the HCF Research Foundation is achieving implementation of research activities.
Health services research examines how people get access to health care, how much health care costs, and what happens to patients as a result of this care. The main goals of health services research are considered to be to identify the most effective ways to organise, manage, finance, and deliver high quality care; reduce medical errors; and improve patient safety.
Two grants of up to $60,000 each (excluding GST) are available for a period of one year to fund research into health services issues of relevance to general practice. This might include access to care, effectiveness of care, quality of care, efficiency of care, or cost of care.
This grant is made available by the HCF Research Foundation with matched funds provided by the RACGP Foundation.
To be eligible for the RACGP Foundation / HCF Research Foundation Research Grant, the principal investigator must be a general practitioner or general practice registrar.
