2021 QSVI and Micro Grant Fall Cycle Research Grant Winners

POSNA congratulates the 2021 QSVI and Micro Grant Fall Cycle Research Grant Winners

The goal of the QSVI grant is to encourage members in developing and implementing quality and patient safety programming at their own institutions and/or among their colleagues.

The objective of the Micro Grant Program is to advance musculoskeletal care for children and adolescents through education, research, quality, safety and value initiatives, advocacy, and global outreach to children in underserved areas. The program is dedicated to promoting the diversity of its membership to encourage members who don't typically receive major POSNA research awards to advance their creative ideas. Grants are for $1,000 or less.
