Description:

A TCR is a one-time solicitation for grant applications to address a specific health issue and stimulate research on areas of national importance where there is a significant knowledge gap. A TCR specifies the scope and objectives of the research to be proposed, application requirements and procedures, and the review criteria to be applied in the evaluation of applications submitted in response to the TCR.

The TCR on loneliness, social isolation and chronic disease management 2022 grant opportunity aims to support research that develops an evidence base for future policies, interventions and initiatives to assist people experiencing loneliness and/or social isolation to manage their chronic disease.

The objectives of the grant opportunity are to:

  • Understand how social isolation and loneliness leads to a decline in health status, poor disease management or reduced rehabilitation for people with chronic disease.
  • Identify interventions that address loneliness and social isolation that can be incorporated into the management of patients with chronic disease.
  • Develop screening tools and resources which equip health and community service providers to assist individuals who may be at a risk of health deterioration and inadequate treatment of chronic conditions due to social isolation and/or loneliness.
