APNF RESEARCH GRANT
The American Psychiatric Nursing Foundation (APNF) is pleased to continue the research grants program to enhance scientific contributions advancing the knowledge and practice of psychiatric-mental health nursing. APNF established these awards to seed new investigators who are beginning their research careers and will award up to five (5) individual grants of up to $5,000 per award. As such, priority will be given to investigators who are early in their research trajectories and who have not previously had major intra- or extramural funding.
Congratulations to the 2013 recipients of the APNF Research Grants! Through its grant program, the American Psychiatric Nursing Foundation aids scientific research and contributions which add to the knowledge and practice of psychiatric-mental health nursing. This year the Foundation is assisting two members in their research: each received a $5,000 grant and a complimentary registration to the APNA 27th Annual Conference.

INJURY CONTROL RESEARCH CENTER FOR SUICIDE PREVENTION
Call for Applications: 2014 Research Training Institute
The annual suicide prevention Research Training Institute (RTI) is a five-day (May 19–23, 2014) series of interactive workshops, presentations, and small group sessions that takes place at the University of Rochester Medical Center in Rochester, NY. The objectives of the RTI are to provide both violence and injury prevention professionals and suicide researchers with a shared body of knowledge and skills in suicidology, public health and prevention, and relevant research methodologies; create collaborative links between the injury and violence prevention and suicide research communities so that the perspectives, knowledge, and skills of each inform the work of the other; and develop implementation plans for new research projects that will add to the knowledge base for suicide prevention.
To apply for participation in the 2014 RTI, researchers and injury prevention/suicide prevention professionals must develop and submit one joint application that demonstrates their willingness and ability to work as partners to pursue new research projects focusing on public health approaches to suicide prevention.
