Research Grant Proposal Submission Toolkit - Revised
IntroductionThe information provided in this Research Grant Proposal Submission Toolkit is the result of contributions by the members of the Center for Clinical Investigation (CCI) Board. It contains information and suggestions pertinent to developing any grant proposal, and is especially targeted to promote grant proposal submissions to the Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nurses Society™ (WOCN®) - Center for Clinical Investigation (CCI) Grants Research Program.
This toolkit is organized into three main sections that provide guidance from determining whether to develop and submit a research proposal to starting up a study after funding is received. It is designed so the user is able to use a single or all sections, depending on their need and interest. After each section is a flow chart of key tasks, then a checklist is provided as a final summary. Suggestions are included throughout to enhance a proposal's success. Other additional resources are provided for more complete information.
