by Dustin, Soraya, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2009, 63; 1466200
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to design a program, identify potential funding sources, and write a grant proposal to fund a chronic kidney disease prevention program. The prevention program aims to reduce the rates and severity of kidney failure at one Southern California Community Medical Center. An extensive literature review increased knowledge about the risk of kidney failure and provided information about evidence-based kidney failure prevention programs that the grant writer then used to design a best-practices program. A search for potential funding sources via the Internet and a grant database, FC Search, resulted in the selection of the Amgen Foundation as the best funding source for this project. A proposal was then written to support a chronic kidney disease prevention program at Garden Grove Hospital and Medical Center in Garden Grove, California. Actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
