Assessment Description
Context:
This assessment requires that students present the research project they proposed and explored in Assessments 1 and 2, in the format of a grant application. Many health research projects, in addition to other initiatives and services, are funded for temporary periods of time by grants, which are awarded competitively, based on applications. Grants can be awarded in diverse areas of health research, health care and health promotion, and can be given by the Commonwealth, State/Territory or Local Governments, as well as by Non‐ Government Organisations and Private industry (such as health insurance companies, philanthropic organisations). Preparing grant applications and applying for grants is a common task that public health professionals need to undertake. Writing a grant application is a useful real‐world skill, which requires you to plan and clearly describe all aspects of a proposed research project, often using a specific template which may have strict word limitations. This includes justifying the need for such a project by arguing for its’ significance and expected benefits, and explaining clearly the aims, research questions, and methodology (taking into account ethical considerations) so that it is evident that the project is feasible and will yield positive outcomes
Instructions:
Your task is to prepare a detailed research proposal for a potential research project, to submit as a grant application, presented in a concise and logical manner with appropriate APA referencing, and written in an academic style. The research proposal must address a significant public health problem, this must relate to one of the eight major groups of chronic diseases as identified by AIHW (2019), and must also relate to at least one of the following areas: health care/services, health policy, determinants of health / health inequities. Your grant application must address the same public health issue, and associated research proposal as the assessments you have already completed for this subject. Your grant application must be persuasive: it should clearly identify the significance and the perceived benefits of the research. The research proposal must be no longer than 2000 words, and must conform to the following template (these represent common headings for a research grant application). Information provided under the headings is to assist you in completing these sections.
Title
A title for your project of 20‐50 words must be provided.

‘Lay description’
A short, clear description of your project of 100‐150 words, in accessible language should be provided (avoid technical terms or jargon). This is information which can be used, for example, for media releases – so must be understandable by people who are not public health professionals.
Aims, Significance and Research questions (500 words)
What are the aims of your project? What does it seek to examine, investigate, analyse, and achieve? What is the significance of your project? Why is it important? What problem/s does it address? What are the expected benefits? Conclude this section by clearly identifying your research question/s (and/or hypotheses).
Background (600 words)
Provide a critical review of relevant literature here. This should provide the context for your proposed study, and you should conclude this section by identifying the research ‘gap’ that your proposed study will address.
In this section, you should try and find 5-10 studies that closely match your research design and topic if you can. So for example, if your topic was assessing an intervention for obesity among school age children in Australia, you would try and find several studies (using Google Scholar, Pub med or similar) that are trying to do the same thing or similar. Then within this section, you summarise the findings of each one that are relevant to your study question within 1-2 sentences. You should also highlight any common limitations you find among the studies (hint: this is usually in the final paragraphs of the discussion section). You should then try to address these limitations if you can by making your study design reflect their suggestions for how it could be improved, e.g. if they say something like, 'Larger studies are needed', you could make your study larger than theirs. This also helps you better define the research gap, e.g. the justification for your study.
Research plan and methodology (including ethical considerations) (700 words
Provide an overview of your research plan to answer your research question/s here. This should include: methodology and methods (quantitative, qualitative or mixed methods), and details of data collection and analysis. You should explain how these methods directly answer your aims and research questions. You should also explain how the research project would be undertaken in a way consistent with ethical principles.
you should use references within the Methods section. The answer is yes, definitely... you should be looking to "borrow" the best ideas for your study from other similar studies, but MAKE SURE you reference them if you are doing so. I went through the appropriate wording for this in class, but as an example: "Following the method adopted in Jones et. al (2020), thematic analysis will be used to identify key themes."

Title

Barriers to access and use of mental health services among primary school children who are suffering from mental health issues in Australia.
Lay Description
Mental health problems in children (4-11 years of age) are a confronting and serious psychiatric illness. Mental illness in childhood can have a substantial impact on wellbeing (Jan et al., XXXXXXXXXXIn 2013–14, an estimated 314,000 children aged 4–11 (almost 14%) experienced a mental disorder in the 12 months before the survey. Boys were more commonly affected than girls (17% compared with 11%) (AIHW, 2020).
Mental health issues are more common in that children who are born in Australia rather than overseas born children. Prevalence of mental health problems in children are more common in whose have lower level of education, income and having public housing. Mental health problems can be prevented through investigation and early detection and also providing mental health services. This research aim to identify the barriers to access and use of mental health services among primary school children who are suffering from mental health issues in Australia (AIHW, 2020).
Aim 500 words
The aim of this project is to identify the barriers to access and use of mental health services among primary school children who are suffering from mental health issues in Australia also identify the mental health services which are available for primary school children in South Australia. Mental health problems put negative impact on children’s growth and development as well as it is a leading cause of disability in adult age. Mental health problems are more common in low socio economic areas (19%) rather than high economic areas (12%).
