Week 7 Summary: Principles and Sources for Financial Management Summary

Can you believe there is only one week left? This week we looked at funding sources for evidence‐based intervention and determined the costs of population‐based interventions. How people pay for health care in the United States always matters to public health nurses because, in this century, the cost of health care and who pays has become one of the hot topics in the health care field. For one thing, too many people still do without essential health care, and for another, the current health care system is no longer sustainable. It’s a pretty exciting time for health care, considering the chaos of conflicting issues. On the one hand, technology and telehealth are significantly improving some health conditions, while at the same time, practitioners sometimes find themselves more dependent on technology than is desirable.

 

1 Peter 5: 10- “And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.”

The CDC’s National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion provides funding to state and local health and education departments; other federal health agencies; international and national health organizations; academic institutions; philanthropic foundations; industry and labor groups; and professional, voluntary, and community organizations. Take a look at their site to see if any of these funding opportunities apply to your current or future role as a public health nurse or is something that interests you. Share with the class what you found.

According to CDC’S National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Chronic diseases are responsible for 7 in 10 deaths each year, and treating people with chronic diseases accounts for many of our nation’s health care costs, (CDC, 2022). The site has many opportunities for public health grants, CDC awards financial assistance in the form of grants when there is not a demonstrated need for substantial agency involvement beyond normal oversight and monitoring activities throughout the life of the grant. As a public health nurse working in the community, CDC grants can provide much-needed funds for community-based interventions, (CDC, 2017). The Healthy Start grant aims to improve health outcomes before, during, and after pregnancy. Reduce racial and ethnic differences in rates of infant deaths and negative maternal health outcomes. Healthy Start has various projects for underserved communities. The grant.gov is a great site, that provides information on local, state, and government funding. CDC uses grants and cooperative agreements to fund public health programs that advance the agency’s public health mission to keep Americans safe and healthy where they work, live, and play. The resources can help health departments navigate the federal grant writing process as well, (CDC, 2017).

Grants are funding resource to support projects and research. Nursing leaders and healthcare leaders may write

grants which meet the needs of the target population at-risk to support the proposed programs (Stanhope and Lancaster, 2019). There are several grants available for my chosen population African American to include NLM Information Resource Grants to Reduce Health Disparities, Health Services Research on Minority and Health Disparities, Notice of Special Interest (NOSI): Research to Address Vaccine Hesitancy, Uptake, and Implementation among Population that Experience Health Disparities, and Leveraging Health Information Technology to Address Minority Health and Health Disparities (Rural Health Information Hub, 2022). My topic for my study is about the vaccine hesitancy among African American. Therefore, I think the most appropriate grant to support this study is the Notice of Special Interest (NOSI): Research to Address Vaccine Hesitancy, Uptake, and Implementation among Population that Experience Health Disparities.  This funding agency focused on community-engaged research to evaluate strategies to facilitate vaccination uptake in clinical and community contexts and address the barriers to increasing reach, access, and uptake of vaccinations among health disparity populations (Rural Health Information Hub, 2022). For every grant request, a grant proposal is essential to provide concepts and the principles of the programs. I will write a grant proposal explaining the benefits of the proposed project, planning and evaluation plan to convince the agency to approve the grant proposal.

While there are many grants available within Los Angeles County, few are aim towards my chosen population which is: Obesity in adults. The Unihealth Foundation was created to support and facilitate activities that significantly improve the health and well-being of individuals in the community. One area focus is on population and community heath grants and aim to consider long term systematic efforts in addressing the health needs of the communities with an overall goal to improve the health status of community members, particularly the vulnerable population.  The Unihealth Foundation noted a Funding Strategy that focused on Population & Community Health, Healthcare Delivery Systems in the amount of $604,058 called Adventist Health Glendale 2015. This was developed to support a multi-pronged, evidence-based, population health project, which aims to improve “diabetes”, obesity, diabetes management and diabetes outcomes in Glendale. Unihealth Foundation, (2022) suggest “ The project will allow Glendale Adventist Medical Center to better identify undiagnosed diabetes in low-income communities and to link newly diagnosed patients to evidence-based outpatient and health education services in the community by 1) conducting data-driven health screenings at community settings where there is most need, 2) training safety net clinicians in evidence-based diabetes management practices, 3) supporting behavior change by launching culturally appropriate disease self-management courses and 4) collaborating with area hospital and community clinic partners to electronically facilitate referrals and care coordination”. Glendale is approximately 20 miles east of my currently community, perhaps this type of grant can be used as an example to secure funding in my current community.

Numerous grants can be used to implement population-based interventions/initiatives. Strengthening the bonds between the community development and health care sectors is a logical and necessary next step in the evolution of both fields of practice, (Community Tool Box, 2018). A core principle of public health is that every person should be able to reach his or her full health potential. The Control Center for Disease and Prevention (CDC), Enhancing Reviews and Surveillance to Eliminate Maternal Mortality (ERASE MM) falls under the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP). The NCCDPHP, work is deeply rooted in addressing social determinants of health to reduce barriers and promote health and wellness for all, (CDC, 2017).

This funding directly supports agencies and organizations that coordinate and manage Maternal Mortality Review Committees to identify, review, and characterize pregnancy-related deaths; and identify prevention opportunities, (CDC, 2017).  Complete an application and collect data on facilitating an understanding of the drivers of maternal mortality and complications of pregnancy and a better understanding of the associated disparities. Determine what interventions at the patient, provider, facility, system, and community levels will have the most effect on decreasing the death rate of maternal women of color.

A data management plan (DMP) is a written description of the plan for the collection, protection, sharing, and long-term preservation of public health data. It is a blueprint that will assist in planning for data management and sharing in advance of the actual data generation and collection. The DMP is a living document, meaning it must be updated and revised as the project evolves and throughout the lifecycle of the data collected, (CDC, 2017). In a DMP, recipients are expected to describe how they intend to manage, preserve, and make accessible data generated or collected with CDC funds. The DMP should be developed during the project planning phase before initiating data generation or collection activities. If the project involves collecting or generating public health data, CDC will require the DMP with the initial funding application or soon after the award begins, (CDC, 2017).
