Lung Foundation Australia / Boehringer Ingelheim COPD Fellowship supports research to improve the diagnosis and management of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) in Australia. Specifically, the proposed research must be aimed at developing and/or delivering optimal care to people with COPD.
Relevant domains of research inquiry range from evaluation of population screening initiatives; interventions to improve diagnostic accuracy within primary care; through to issues of management in the context of a clinician-patient interaction to system level issues to do with the organisation, financing and performance of the health system, including COPD management of Indigenous and ethnic minorities within Australia.
The Lung Foundation is also currently accepting applications for a variety of scholarships, conference allowances, publishing support, and prizes.
Visit the Open Research Awards section of the Foundation’s website for details.
