Notice of Special Interest (NOSI): Administrative Supplement for Research Efforts that Illuminate Fundamental Processes Underlying Behavior Change, Maintenance, and Adherence (Admin Supp Clinical Trial Optional)
The NIH Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR) within the Office of the Director (OD) Division of Program Coordination, Planning, and Strategic Initiatives (DPCPSI) announces the availability of administrative supplements to support research to examine causal, process, or contextual variables that:
Assess mechanisms of action (MOA) consistent with the application’s hypothesis, those that might elucidate alternative MOA than the primary hypothesis, as well as those variables or processes that might explain a lack of intervention effect.
Assess underlying causes/MOA explaining behavior change, maintenance of behavior and/or adherence beyond the active intervention period.
Are hypothesized to be associated with or contributing to (mediators or moderators) an intervention study’s main effect (efficacy) over the course of behavior initiation and maintenance, including measures of adherence.
Barriers and facilitators of behavior adoption and sustainment over time.
Contextual information about the intervention delivery system and environmental, social, or community factors that might explain the intervention effectiveness or lack of effect; including assessing differences between those who respond or don’t respond to the behavioral intervention.
