National Level Program Data Research Opportunities

An investigator can submit a proposal to conduct investigator-led research projects using national level data from (AHA/ASA) quality improvement programs. Research projects are hypothesis-driven studies that are developed into manuscripts suitable for peer-reviewed publication.

Developing and Submitting a Research Proposal

Study questions (hypotheses) need to be developed within the context of data acquired through the American Heart Association's Get With The Guidelines® or Mission: Lifeline program.

The applicant should review the data elements collected across their program module of interest. To avoid developing a proposal that has already been published, please review previous publications. Complete the Research Proposal Form completely with details and suggested tables and charts then submit to Decisions will be sent out within 3 months.
