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 qualityresearch@heart.org. Decisions will be sent out within 3 months.
