    ACVECC RECOVER CPR Research Grant 2019

    ANNOUNCEMENT – PRE-PROPOSALS SOLICITED

    The American College of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care (ACVECC) is pleased to announce a new grant opportunity in 2019, the ACVECC RECOVER CPR Research Grant. Research studies that address knowledge gaps in veterinary CPR are eligible for funding.

    The RECOVER initiative’s mission is to improve outcomes for animals that suffer from cardiopulmonary arrest. To achieve this goal, RECOVER generates evidence-based guidelines to inform best practices in veterinary CPR, provides educational content to actively disseminate these guidelines to veterinary practitioners and the lay public, and fosters a scientific environment to stimulate the generation of new knowledge pertaining to veterinary CPR.  Such new knowledge is then expected to improve the quality of the CPR treatment recommendations.

    RECOVER provided its first evidence- and consensus-based CPR guidelines in 2012. During the evidence evaluation process, numerous significant knowledge gaps were identified, and it became obvious that more research in veterinary CPR is required to move the field forward. The goal of the ACVECC RECOVER CPR Research Grant is to address these knowledge gaps. It will be administered by the ACVECC Scientific Program Committee in conjunction with the RECOVER Research Committee and offers project support of up to a total of $10,000 US.
