BACCN Ethnic Minority Funding Award

BACCN ETHNIC MINORITY FUNDING: Invitation for critical care professionals from an ethnic minority to apply for funding for a work project

As part of our on-going commitment to support all our critical care workforce, the BACCN would like to invite critical care health care professionals from an ethnic minority background for an award of up to £2000 to support a work project relating to an ethnic minority issue in critical care. This call is for BACCN members and non-members, working in UK. Successful applicants will receive one year’s free membership to the BACCN, if they are not already members.

The project may be a research, service evaluation, quality improvement project or an audit relating to a ethnic minority issue in critical care in the UK. The project may focus on patients, their families, staff, or other organisational issues. The project must align with the mission of the BACCN. Applications will be anonymously evaluated against the mission statement and the feasibility and quality of the project proposal. 

Please find details of how to apply HERE

Applications for 2022 are open with a deadline of August 31 2022.  Winners will be announced in October.
