Students will lose five points for each 24hour period beyond the due date and time including weekends for unexcused late assignments. Assignments that are more than 5 days late will not be accepted. In keeping with the UNC Honor Code, if reason exists to believe that academic dishonesty has occurred, a referral will be made to the Office of the Student Attorney General for investigation and further action as required.
Students should discuss the need for specific accommodations with their instructor at the beginning of the semester. Writing Assignments The primary objective of the writing assignments in this course is for each student to produce a research proposal. During the semester, you will write different sections of a research proposal, each related to a component of a final proposal. Preparing the final proposal will require revision and expansion of the preliminary draft sections, as well as additional sections.
You will submit to the instructor drafts of the following sections: 1. Specific Aims and Significance: After meeting with the instructor to discuss preliminary ideas, each student will identify a topic for a proposal to evaluate the effects of a social intervention.
The assignment requires that you conduct a rapid assessment of literature in your area of interest and construct a conceptual framework to guide the research. Then, you will develop a one-page Specific Aims section and a one to twopage Significance section. The Specific Aims section is a concise summary of your entire proposal and is often the only part of your proposal that is read by the majority of your reviewers during the grant review process. The Significance section is where you will convince your reviewers of the importance and merit of your research.
This assignment will be due September Innovation: This one- to two-page section requires that you discuss in convincing fashion how your research will advance the state of knowledge in your chosen field. Innovations in design, approach, measurement, and other areas should be highlighted. This assignment will be due October 3. Approach: This section is most detailed and the most important part of your proposal. Here, you will convince your reviewers of the scientific merit of your research methods and of your ability to carry out your important research.
You will outline the basic features of an experimental or quasi-experimental design for evaluating the impact of a social intervention on specific outcomes. You should identify key research questions or hypotheses, the unit s of analysis, and how threats to the validity of the research will be controlled. This will include a conceptual framework, including text and a diagram depicting the framework. If necessary, the discussion should provide a rationale for using an approach that deviates from a true experimental design and describe how concessions to design constraints make the research vulnerable to criticism.
Also, you should include a description of your relevant research population and sampling procedures. In addition, this section requires that you identify and assess the relative strengths and weaknesses of measures of or approaches to measuring of constructs identified in your conceptual framework. You will prepare a statistical power analysis using key independent and dependent variables related to your research. You can use Web-based programs or commercial software for this exercise.
This assignment will be due October Research Proposal: This assignment is the culmination of your work in this course. We will discuss the format and content of the proposal early in the semester. In addition, we 3 SOWO — FALL — Cuddeback will review various resources throughout the course that will be helpful in preparing the proposal, which will incorporate material from each of the other written assignments.
The budget and career development plan do not count towards the page limitations for the research proposal. The proposal, which will be limited to 12 single-spaced pages of narrative, will be due on December 3. Presentation of Final Proposal: Each student will make a minute presentation on their final research proposal. Presentations will be graded on professionalism of materials PowerPoint, handouts , articulation of the problem, and strength of the research design.

Your involvement in the field begins by identifying yourself to potential collaborators by registering as a member of the Community of Science. The financial realities of contemporary social intervention research also dictate that you become familiar with sources of financial support for your research.

Unlike scientists in the laboratory, however, social intervention researchers play a role in the research process, but lack complete control over it. To be effective, social intervention researchers must appreciate the context in which they work and develop interpersonal skills as well as technical knowledge and skills that will make them effective in this role.
Human beings as "participants" in research rather than "subjects" of research Each student will submit a CITI certificate indicating their completion of the on-line course related to the protection of human participants in research.

This aim of this study was to determine the OOP payments and the frequency of informal cash payments to physicians for inpatient services before and after the HTP in Kurdistan province, Iran. Methods This quasi-experimental study used multistage sampling method to select and evaluate patients discharged from hospitals in Kurdistan province. Part of the data was collected using a hospital information system form and the rest were collected using a questionnaire.
Data were analyzed using Fisher exact test, logistic regression, and independent samples ttest. Contrary to the time before the HTP, no informal payment was reported after the third phase. Conclusion It seems that the implementation of the HTP has reduced the OOP payments for inpatient services and eradicated informal payments to physician in Kurdistan province.
