C735 - Proposal Development for Health Care Leaders
The ability to develop a successful proposal, whether it is for educational or service delivery programs, grant/funding applications or research projects, is an essential skill needed for healthcare managers, educators and researchers. The purpose of this online course is to help students develop the skills necessary to research, design and write a persuasive proposal. Through readings, self-directed learning, assignments and online discussions, students will explore and develop various components of a proposal. Topics and assignments will include: identifying appropriate data sources and conducting literature reviews; developing clear, concise and compelling research questions and/or purpose statements; determining ideal methods or delivery approaches; establishing resources required; understanding when ethics approval is required and how to navigate ethics review boards; and summarizing proposals into brief abstracts or executive summaries.
