The Neonatal Resuscitation Program was initiated in 1987. Since that time, more than 4 million health care professionals have been trained as providers. The NRP Steering Committee is interested in the effect of this program on neonatal morbidity and mortality as well as other interventions that may improve the outcome of neonatal resuscitation.
Researchers from Canadian and US institutions can apply for one of the four grant options to investigate the best ways to optimize care in the delivery room using NRP:
- NRP Human Factors or Education Grant (up to $15,000): Any health care professional with an interest in the impact of human factors on delivery room resuscitation or optimization of NRP education
- NRP Young Investigator Award (up to $15,000): Physicians-in-training or individuals within 4 years of medical training
- NRP Research Grant Program (up to $50,000): Any health care professional with an interest in neonatal resuscitation
- Jeanette Zaichkin NRP Nursing Grant for Excellence and Innovation in NRP Education (up to $10,000): A nurse or nurse practitioner who works in the delivery room or NICU. The recipient must also be a current NRP Instructor in good standing.
Please note the NRP grants should not be considered as a source of funding for implementation and dissemination of the Helping Babies Breathe Program or resuscitation in low resource settings.
