The American Academy of Orthotists & Prosthetists (the Academy) invites proposals for development of instructional videos and supplemental materials that demonstrate setup, administration, scoring, and interpretation of outcome measures suited to use in orthotic and prosthetic (O&P) clinics. Videos and supplemental materials will be hosted on the Academy Paul E. Leimkuehler Online Learning Center (OLC), and videos will be posted to the Academy YouTube channel. Applicants may propose to develop videos and associated materials for up to five outcome measures. Applicants may select an outcome measure from the list provided by the Academy Outcomes Research Committee (ORC) or recommend another measure that is relevant to O&P clinical care. Each year the award provides up to $1,700 per outcome measure (up to five measures). Applications are due to the Academy no later than February 28 and award notification takes place six to eight weeks from submission deadline.
