Friday, May 24, 2019 CoHSTAR Pilot Study Deadline June 1 A deadline is fast approaching for Center on Health Services Training and Research (CoHSTAR) opportunities to develop pilot studies that would help set the stage for larger efforts to advance a wide range of health services research. Letters of intent are due by June 1, 2019. The selected pilot studies would address research questions in CoHSTAR's 4 areas of specialization—analysis of large data sets, rehabilitation outcome measurement, cost-effectiveness, and implementation of science and quality improvement research—and the CoHSTAR Pilot Study Program webpage lists examples of specific types of studies that would qualify for funding. Each pilot study will receive $25,000 in funding for direct costs. APTA was a major financial contributor to the development of CoHSTAR, having donated $1 million toward the center's startup in 2015. In addition to APTA’s $1 million donation, funding for CoHSTAR also came from APTA components, individual PTs, foundations, and corporate supporters.
