Support:  The total project period may not exceed one year, with funding ranging from $1,500 to $5,000.  The number of grants awarded per year will vary but range from at least 3 grants to no more than 10 grant awards per year.

 

Purpose:  The IAFN Research Award is intended to encourage exploratory, interventional or developmental forensic nursing research studies or evidence-based practice projects.  Key research focus areas for IAFN include research exploring health outcomes, including cost of care, of victims of violence when forensic nurses are involved in their care and research to guide clinical care of patients affected by violence.  Funding can be used as seed money for a pilot study, completion of a full study or project, or augment existing funding to an established research project.
