health promotion grant proposal
Health and social care professionals working in all sectors of health services are often called on to participate in planning, designing and applying for grant money to run health promotion projects. This assignment uses real world planning and design tools that you will be able to use in your practice.
There are 2 options for completing this assignment.
Design your own health promotion project for a specific population.
If you currently work in health promotion in your health or community service you are encouraged to explore a project proposal that is relevant to your service and the populations in your service catchment area and meets the strategic directions of your health service as well as relevant state and national health targets. If you take this option we encourage you to discuss your ideas with relevant people at your work place.
Design a health promotion project based on the aims and overall briefing of a larger regional project
This option is suitable for students not employed in health or community service that has a health promotion focus. Your regional Primary Health Network has put out a call for submissions for funding projects in your area. Your task is to choose one of these projects, and design a health promotion project that forms a smaller component of the overall project.
To complete this option, locate a PHN on the interactive map available at Primary Health Care Research and Information Service (PHCRIS) and identify an aspect of health promotion relevant to that PHN.
