We’ve selected the first recipients of the RightCare Alliance Young Innovator Grants, the grants that support initiatives that help trainees challenge the culture of overuse in health care. We asked for proposals last summer to pilot programs that teach trainees to recognize and avoid overuse, build more meaningful relationships with patients, and provide ethical compassionate care.
We were thrilled at the response we received to our Call for Proposals. In all, we received 80 applications from all over the country, totaling more than 200 team members. The projects were submitted by junior faculty, medical and nursing students, residents and others, and they ranged from quality improvement, to discussion groups, to service learning opportunities.
Many thanks to the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation for generously funding the Young Innovators.
The recipients are now on their way, having attended a special leadership training session in Boston on November 15.
