A new 2017 Call for Proposals (CFP) from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), administered by AcademyHealth, sought to fund studies to better understand how to build trust and mutual respect to meet vulnerable patients’ health care needs. While studies have documented a lack of trust in the health care system, little evidence exists on how to build trust and mutual respect to address and overcome the health disparities that exist across different patient populations, including diverse racial and ethnic populations, lower-income populations, the uninsured, people with complex health and social needs (including people with acute behavioral health needs or multiple chronic conditions), etc.

This webinar offered applicants a chance to hear more about the funding opportunity and ask any questions about the application process.

The CFP deadline is October 13 2017 at 3:00 p.m. ET.
