Description: The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH), along with partnering Institutes/Centers/Offices, intends to promote a new initiative by publishing a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) to solicit applications for research on an efficient, large-scale pragmatic trial to evaluate the impact of, and strategies to best implement acupuncture treatment of older adults (65 years and older) with chronic low back pain. This Notice is being provided to allow potential applicants sufficient time to develop meaningful collaborations and responsive projects. This Notice encourages investigators with expertise and insights into this area of evidence-based pain management to begin to consider applying for this new FOA. In addition, collaborative investigations combining expertise in acupuncture, pain management, and pragmatic clinical trials will be encouraged, and these investigators should also begin considering applying for this application. The FOA is expected to be published in the Fall of Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 with an expected application due date in the Winter of FY 2019. This FOA will utilize the UG3/UH3 activity code. Details of the planned FOA are provided below. This study is part of the of the NIH’s Helping to End Addiction Long-term (HEAL) initiative to speed scientific solutions to the national opioid public health crisis. The NIH HEAL Initiative will bolster research across NIH to (1) improve treatment for opioid misuse and addiction and (2) enhance pain management.
