About the Program

The National Institute on Aging (NIA) Imbedded Pragmatic Alzheimer’s Disease and Alzheimer’s Disease-Related Dementias (AD/ADRD) Clinical Trials (IMPACT) Collaboratory (U54AG063546) was established in 2019 to build the nation’s capacity to conduct embedded pragmatic clinical trials (ePCTs) of non-pharmacological interventions within health care systems to improve the care of people living with AD/ADRD and their care partners. The NIA IMPACT Collaboratory funds several one-year pilot studies annually; these are meant to generate the preliminary data necessary to design and conduct a future full-scale Stage IV effectiveness ePCT (based on the NIH Stage Model) funded through other grant mechanisms (National Institutes of Health or other sources). The IMPACT Collaboratory encourages applications that address dementia care for people of all backgrounds and promote health equity.
