Grant funding for Research, in anaesthesia and peri-operative care, is available from the NIAA (National Institute for Academic Anaesthesia). Various programs will be open to funding high quality research into the peri-operative care of children. In partnership with the NIAA the APA will provide funding aimed specifically at perioperative care of children on occasions (approximately once every two years). These grants will be advertised on the APAGBI and NIAA website.
Smaller grant funding, for research, may be available directly from the APAGBI. Applications can be made at any time and will be judged on merit. This includes support for projects that serve scientific development in basic or clinical research in the field of paediatric anaesthesia. We particularly encourage research which will form the basis for future (larger) research applications. Further details of the purpose of this program and the application process are given here.
The APAGBI council may, from time-to-time, make discretionary grants available to members for other purposes in keeping with the Association’s aims. These may include, but are not limited to, grants for developing educational material for members, information for patients and families or Qi projects. Grants will only be made following submission of a completed application form. These grants can only be awarded following a recommendation to Council of the Education and Training, Professional Standards Committees or Scientific committee, which will undertake a thorough review (Standing orders, Appendix 3).
