Track 1 – Learning & Change

Pfizer will publish evidence-based, data driven Request for Proposals (RFPs) in key clinical areas where practice gaps have been identified through external entities, registries and other assessment methodologies and processes. Each RFP will focus on areas where Pfizer support could potentially have the greatest impact on improved patient care and outcomes. Click here to view currently open RFPs.

Track 2 - Knowledge Gap

Knowledge Gap grants will focus on educational strategies specially designed to close gaps in knowledge and improve competence in certain clinical areas, as identified through needs assessment and other data that would support this type of strategy. Types of funding currently available include:

  • Annual Meetings: Funding to support LIVE national and regional conferences and congresses. CLICK HERE to view the 2016 clinical areas of interest, goals, and submission deadlines.
  • Call for Grant Applications (CGA): In certain clinical areas, a Call for Grant Application (CGA) will also be posted. The CGA will describe (1) the clinical area of interest, (2) the approximate total budget available, (3) the rationale behind the need for knowledge-driven education or assessment, (4) the outcome-reporting required, and (5) what information must be included the application.
