Grants to USA government agencies, businesses, non-profits, universities, and others for clinical trials designed to reduce high blood pressure among at-risk populations. January 13, 2015 is the deadline for the optional letter of intent. Awardees will evaluate various evidence based methods of blood pressure control among disproportionately affected populations such as racial and ethnic minorities, individuals with low socioeconomic status, and rural communities.

For the purposes of this FOA, high risk populations are those with an elevated risk of fatal and non-fatal cardiovascular disease outcomes and for whom it has been challenging to achieve a high rate (>75%) of blood pressure control. Many high risk populations are served in health care facilities such as Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), and community clinics. Many of these populations include a significant proportion of patients insured through Medicaid.

Planning, implementation, recruitment, retention, and dissemination, and other aspects of the trials will involve patients and key stakeholders in meaningful ways to assure the trial success.

Research Strategy: The project's overall goals are to improve clinical practice and lead to improvement in blood pressure control and other related patient-centered outcomes in disparities populations. Trials must be based on comparative study designs and must not include cost-effectiveness analyses. The overall active intervention strategy should be based on a comprehensive model of the remedial causes of disparities in hypertension among these high risk populations and the health care system in which these trials will occur.

Projects must be for patient-centered, comparative effectiveness research that specifically targets disparities in hypertension management. To avoid duplication, encourage innovation, and enhance utility of future research findings, the proposed trials must be innovative and different from previous and ongoing research by the proposing research team and past trials by other investigators.
