Business Writing Session 1: INCIDENT DOCUMENTION

Wednesday March 23 9:30am – 12:30pm

While trying to avoid incidents is the goal of any workplace, it is important to manage and document when the unusual event does occur. Getting the exact details of the occurrence down in document form may be useful when dealing with litigation, tracking trends, and doing what you can to protect your clients, your partners, and yourself.


Business Writing Session 2 : GRANT WRITING

Wednesday March 30 9:00am- 12:30pm

In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn the main parts of a grant proposal. Participants will write several of those parts of the proposal during the class and get feedback on them from experts and peers. Participants will also learn how to find potential funders for their project and be shown what those funders look for in a proposal and what they don’t like to see.


This workshop will prepare participants to:

  • Examine the essential parts of any proposal and how to create them

  • Practice writing selected parts of a grant proposal for your own project

  • Create a basic budget to use in your grant proposal

  • Find potential grant funders for your proposal using Foundation Directory

  • Learn what grant funders want in a proposal and the biggest red flags from their perspective

Wednesday April 6 9:00am-12:30pm

Prevent ambiguity in describing patient care, from admission to discharge. Improve communication and prevent guesswork down the line among all care providers. Design documentation that can be interpreted accurately and efficiently for continuing care.
