CoHSTAR Annual Report Foundation for Physical Therapy Year 3 Report: September 2018 Foundation4pt.org CoHSTAR is funded by the The Foundation for Physical Therapy was established in 1979 as a national, independent nonprofit organization to fund physical therapy research to optimize health and movement. Since its inception, the Foundation has awarded more than $17 million in research grants, fellowships, and scholarships. Many of today's leading physical therapy researchers, clinicians, and academicians began their careers with this support. Foundation-funded researchers have gone on to secure more than $800 million in follow-on funding. INVESTING IN HSR RESEARCH Extends the Foundation model of supporting doctoral trainees CoHSTAR GOALS Bridges gap between PhD completion and successful independent investigator Targets training to develop health services researchers Build upon active and growing research programs at collaborating institutions to build a sustainable, long- term capacity for physical therapy HSR training P u b l i cat i o n s Faculty Fellows 4 4 Pilot Awardees 08 Postdoctoral Fellows per research program Visiting Scientists 0 3 04 N u m b e r o f P r e s e n tat i o n s Faculty Fellows 4 2 Pilot Awardees 16 Postdoctoral Fellows per research program Visiting Scientists 1 1 04 N u m b e r o f P u b l i cat i o n s Faculty Fellows 4 4 Pilot Awardees 08 Postdoctoral Fellows per research program Visiting Scientists 0 3 04 N u m b e r o f P r e s e n tat i o n s Faculty Fellows 4 2 Pilot Awardees 16 Postdoctoral Fellows per research program Visiting Scientists 1 1 04 N u m b e r o f P u b l i cat i o n s Faculty Fellows 4 4 Pilot Awardees 08 Postdoctoral Fellows per research program Visiting Scientists 0 3 04 N u m b e r o f P r e s e n tat i o n s Faculty Fellows 4 2 Pilot Awardees 16 Postdoctoral Fellows per research program Visiting Scientists 1 1 04 N u m b e r o f P u b l i cat i o n s Faculty Fellows 4 4 Pilot Awardees 08 Postdoctoral Fellows per research program Visiting Scientists 0 3 04 N u m b e r o f P r e s e n tat i o n s Faculty Fellows 4 2 Pilot Awardees 16 Postdoctoral Fellows per research program Visiting Scientists 1 1 04 Build health services research (HSR) infrastructure to facilitate interdisciplinary health services and health policy research by physical therapist scientists Expand the number of health services and health policy physical therapist researchers through training Increase the quantity and quality of physical therapy health services and policy research by supporting high quality pilot and small studies. "As health delivery con nues to evolve and we explore new technologies, models, and systems to meet society's needs, it is more important than ever that PTs are right there in the mix, sleeves up, working collabora vely with other prac oners to shape and guide that evolu on," said APTA President Sharon Dunn, PT, PhD. "We are a cri cal part of the health care team, and our par cipa on in research for the future is impera ve. What CoHSTAR has been able to do in just 3 short years is so impressive. Their work will, among other things, ensure a steady pool of PT scien sts who are properly trained to conduct health services research and to compete for the funding to do so." Direct Cost Distribu on Years 1-3 Thanks to the generous support of our donors, the Center on Health Services Training and Research (CoHSTAR) was established with a Founda on for Physical Therapy grant of $2.5 million, including a lead dona on of $1 million from the American Physical Therapy Associa on. CoHSTAR is a mul -ins tu onal first-of-its-kind center. Brown University faculty Linda Resnik, PT, PhD, FAPTA, serves as the principal inves gator on this award; she assembled a mentorship team of outstanding faculty to catalyze the advancement of health services and health policy research in physical therapy.
