This webinar will provide a brief overview of the APHON EBP grant application process, including how to develop and submit a letter of intent, and if selected, how to develop and submit a proposal. Emphasis will be placed on how the Standards for Psychosocial Care for Children with Cancer and Their Families were developed and a review of the two specific standards targeted by the 2018 Mattie Miracle Foundation/APHON EBP grants.

The presenters will discuss how the specific standards were developed and possible EBP implementation strategies. The webinar will also provide ways that the APHON EBP/Research Committee may be a resource to members who intend to apply for one of the 3 grant opportunities.
