RESPONDING TO A RESEARCH RFP FOR FUNDING PURPOSES
You are the leader of a health management team at a large hospital. A recent RFP circulated by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is seeking viable research projects that will be funded by the institute.
The first step for your health management team is to establish research questions that will drive studies into new areas and attract funding in the process. As the lead team member, you will prepare a proposal idea in memo form as a preliminary response to the RFP. This memo will be submitted to your superiors before being further developed and presented to the NIH.

The research process contains many steps, and your first step will be to formulate a research study question. Normally, a researcher will find a topic through personal or professional interest and direct it toward solving a problem; however, the NIH has provided a list of health issues that it considers most urgent. In order to prepare your proposal idea in memo form, select one of the topics presented in the attached RFP. (Note: Your topic will be utilized throughout all the competencies in this area of expertise, so select a topic that has an enduring interest for you.)

Skin cancer in young women
Cardiovascular disease in a minority population
Long-term care for patients with Alzheimer’s disease
Cultural impact of posttraumatic stress disorder
