APPROACHES TO HEALTH PROMOTION 2012GRANT APPLICATION AND EVALUATION

 

 

  1. The format is fixed so students cannot exceed the word limit. This is common practice in grant applications. Note this format is not the same as last year!!! Assignments not submitted on the proforma will not be marked. If they are not submitted via Turnitin they will not be marked. Note the three extra days from submission date to Turnitin and then final FULL PRINT VIEW version of Turnitin to the assignment box.

 

  1. Topics may only be selected from the list of conditions provided.

 

 

  1. Executive Summary (Max 250 words)

Provide a brief description of the proposal. This should be a clear stand alone, summary of the context, objectives, method and expected outcomes of the project. Do not write an abstract. ALL key points in the paper- no hints only actual content summarised. So it states arguments in the rationale; (do not say a rationale is provided), must state the goal and objectives, how they will be evaluated not say a goal was stated etc. It covers all key headings of the application.

 

  1. Contents (Max 100 words)

(See the Hints in Learning Guide on how to set up a contents page!) Sections should be numbered and font matched to what is used in the text. Headings are typically full caps and sub-headings leading caps only. It’s a good idea to use three columns in table format and then use hide.

 

  1. Goal Statement (Max eight words) Include target group and location.

 

TASK

Using shoulder injuries that require a replacement see what the students know about this topic. Then write a goal statement: To reduce the incidence of XXX in XXX year olds.

 

  1. Rationale to support the goal statement (Max 500 words).

List FOUR good reasons ie the rationale as to why this intervention should be resourced. Include a needs analysis based on Bradshaw’s definitions eg the normative need requires support from recent refereed literature and provider views. Consumer consultations are also required eg wants. Bullet points may be used. See attached ideas.

TASK

List four rationales for addressing shoulder injuries.

 

  1. Project Objectives (Max 300 words)

List at least three project objectives. Objectives should be specific, agreed, measurable, relevant and time constrained (SMART) and state how they will be measured. For each objective specify at least three impact measures.

 

 

TASK

 

Use the shoulder injuries example:

Write ideas on the board.

 

Objective: Impact measures:
1.

 

1.1

1.2

1.3

2.

 

2.1

2.2

2.3

3 3.1
  3.2
  3.3

 

 

 

  1. Intervention Proposals (Max 500 words)

For each of the objectives identified, specify intervention actions or strategies that address equity issues, which agencies/ services providers etc will be involved (partners), and the expected time required eg six months (6/12). Also include evaluation measures. DO NOT USE EDUCATIONAL STRATEGIES/ACTIONS.

 

They should reflect the principles in the three Charters and relate to lectures 10-12 ie community development, policy, settings based action, social marketing, new products, infrastructure or environmental changes- not education! Has equity and socio-economic disadvantage been addressed? In this section the literature showing best practice is used to support the approach selected. Try using the tear drop and 4Es model too.

 

TASK

Plan some actions to prevent shoulder injuries. Be careful they are not too wordy. Write on the board.

 

Evaluation must include mainly outcome indicators and impact measures. The process measures are given on the table above.

Ask students to come up with evaluation indicators for three actions. Write on the board. NB Be careful not to confuse outcome indicators ie mortality and morbidity with impacts on the environment eg changes to sport rules, protective equipment, warming up etc. TO COME UP WITH IDEAS FOR THIS TASK, USE THE TEAR DROP MODEL OR THE FOUR ES AS ATTACHED.

 

Obj. 1:  
Action/strategies Partners Time

frame (6/12)

Resources required eg staff, facilities, printing etc Process Evaluation indicators
1.1        
1.2     etc  

 

  1. 9. References cited for this project (not word limited)

List a minimum of ten recent and relevant references from refereed journals excluding refs from the unit.

 

Students need to be advised that texts and report titles also journal titles are in italics with all leading caps. The actual journal article name is not in bold or italic and only the first leading cap is used or after :

 

Punctuation is important eg Author: Jones, D.S., Smith, A. G. and Beggs, G.

 

You cannot reference to a website – only an author, article or report on a website and must use this format: Retrieved from the World Wide Web June 12, 2009: then name website from URL. WWW has all leading caps. YOU ARE REMINDED THAT APA WAS REVISED ONLY IN FEBRUARY 2012.

Advise that more than ten refs are usually cited in assignments that get higher marks!!!

Do not put full refs in text – just author year and page eg Smith 2006:15-24. Page ref is needed for quotes. DO NOT PUT INITIALS IN TEXT.

 

  • Refs not bibliography and must be cited in the application.
  • Must be recent ie last five years and not from dodgy sites.

 

 

  1. CHECKLIST

Use the checklist on vUWS and attach to your hard copy assignment.

NB These are arranged in hierarchical order- because education is the least effective health promotion strategy. Try and match ideas for interventions with evaluation indicators eg morbidity and mortality equity and cost factors for outcomes. This is all in the lecture too on webct.
WHAT IS A RATIONALE?

Firstly note the spelling! Rational is not the same as rationale.

A rationale may be defined as:

  • A series of reasons assigned for any opinion or action; logical basis.
  • Note there is more than one reason.
  • Obviously the reasons are good reasons for doing things!

 

Examples for health interventions:

  • Policy directives.
  • Funding priority!
  • Supported by community values.
  • Current cost of the health condition or not doing something about it ie future costs.
  • Financial cost and human costs.
  • Evidence for effective intervention -viable intervention available or best bet?
  • Demonstration of new approach.
  • Volume of the problem eg mortality or morbidity or quality of life.
  • Political expediency.
  • Equity issues.
  • Others?????

NB LOOK IN THE LITERATURE!
