  • Background and Significance
  • Translational Science Model
  • Setting
  • Interventions/Approach
  • Instruments
  • Outcomes (Evaluation Plan)
  • Data Collection
  • Protection of Participants
  • Budget


Review faculty feedback from the Week 3 and Week 5 assignments and add the budget section to finalize the grant proposal. Include the following required content:

  1. Introduction: Provide a brief introduction that describes the following:
    1. The purpose of the project

The information provided should be both factual and directly related to the problem addressed by the proposal. The following should be addressed in this section:
    1. Define the purpose for developing the grant proposal.
    2. Identify the problem and address why this is a problem.
    3. Describe the stakeholders, who they are, and how they will benefit.
    4. Describe the specific manner through which problem(s) might be solved.
  4. Translational Science Model (maximum of 1 paragraph)
    1. Identify and briefly describe an appropriate translational science model to guide the project implementation.
  5. Setting (maximum of 1 paragraph)
    1. Describe the setting to include the type of organization (e.g., hospital, clinic, long-term care facility, etc.).
    2. Describe the specific population served by the organization.
    3. Describe the ethnic, racial, and cultural diversity of the community.
  6. Interventions/Approach
    1. Provide a synthesis of evidence to support the evidence-based intervention for the selected problem. Include 3 current Level I, II, or III peer-reviewed primary research studies and/or systematic reviews.
      1. Synthesis of the literature (maximum of 1 paragraph)
        • Main points/salient themes that emerge from the sources (cited)
      2. Support for evidence-based intervention (maximum of 1 paragraph)
        • Objective rationale for the intervention based on the literature
      3. Johns Hopkins Individual Evidence Summary Tool
        • Use the Johns Hopkins Tool to enter the three new articles required for this assignment. Add the three new articles to the tool along with the other articles that were previously entered in other courses.
  7. Data Collection Instruments
    1. Describe the instruments you intend to use to measure the outcomes of the project.
  8. Outcome (Evaluation Plan)
    1. Explain the primary outcome for your evidence-based intervention.
    2. Explain how the success of the project will be evaluated when it is fully implemented.
  9. Data Collection
    1. Describe the method or process including how often measurements will be taken.
  10. Protection of Participants
