The Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation (APSF) Grant Program supports research directed towards enhancing anesthesia patient safety. Its major objective is to stimulate studies leading to prevention of mortality and morbidity resulting from anesthesia mishaps.

For the 2012-2013 funding cycle, APSF is placing a specific emphasis on PATIENT SAFETY EDUCATION and MEDICATION & DEVICE SAFETY. APSF accepts applications in one of two categories of identified need: CLINICAL RESEARCH and EDUCATION AND TRAINING. Each year, we strive to fund at least one grant in each of the two categories. Highest priority is given to: - Studies that will yield results that directly increase patient safety, improve patient outcomes, and/or decrease incidence or severity of complications, morbidity, or mortality; -Studies that address peri-anesthetic safety problems for relatively healthy patients; Studies that are broadly applicable to large numbers of patients AND that promise improved methods of patient safety with a defined and direct path to implementation into clinical care; or Innovative methods of education and training to improve patient safety; or The use of information technology to enhance perioperative patient safety; or Standardization of perioperative protocols to improve patient safety.
