ABSTRACT

TheDecision-making Philanthropists requests a sum of $18,935&nbspfromthe Institute for Happiness and Happiness Research (IHHR) to fund itscommunity CPR training program.

Heartailments and stroke have been identified as the first and fourthprincipal causes of death in the United States (Gillespie,Wigington, &amp Hong). These findings were revealed by the Centerfor Disease Control, which developed its estimates based on the rateof death per 100,000 coronary heart disease or stroke victims.

Heartailments affect people of all ages, although the probability ofoccurrence increases with age. Studies conducted in 2004 reveal that34% of the patients admitted in health institutions were aged below65 (Centersfor Disease Control and Prevention). Many of these incidences andlives could be brought down by Cardiopulmonary ResuscitationTraining. The Decision-making Philanthropists intends to bring thisassertion to reality. With the support of the Institute for Happinessand Happiness Research, the Decision-making Philanthropists plan toorganize three CPR Training days for residents in the Birminghamregion. The group (Decision-making Philanthropists) intends to traina few individuals who, by extension, will equip other members ofsociety with the skills that they gain from the training exercise. Inthe end, a significant portion of the Birmingham populace will havethe skills needed to perform a CPR.

Theoffice of the Decision-making Philanthropists is located inBirmingham. The organization is committed to promoting programs thatadvance the well-being of the whole society. The Decision-makingPhilanthropists’ mission is equipping the community with knowledgeof enhancing health standards and health-related ailments. Thisobjective is realized by partnering with governmental andnon-governmental bodies.

STATEMENTOF NEED

TheAmerican Heart Association asserts that cardiovascular disease is theleading cause of death globally. It accounts for approximately 17.3million demises annually. This estimate is anticipated to go up to26.3 million by the year 2030 (American Heart Association 1).Research indicates that cardiovascular deaths accounted for up to 30%of global deaths in 2008. About 787,000 persons died from a stroke,heart disease, and other cardiovascular ailments in the U.S. in 2011.Heart diseases have been documented to strike someone in Americaapproximately once in every forty-three seconds. Cardiac arrests,mostly, strike without warning, age does not matter. Victims usuallylose consciousness and stop breathing. Most attacks take place inoffices, homes, and other locations. Such cases often occur beforedeath. Such manifestations, however, can be prevented. Knowledge ofCPR can be used to save the lives of heart disease patients (AmericanHeart Association). CPR knowledge doubles the survival chances of acardiac arrest victim.

Nonetheless,some barriers, regarding initiating a CPR Training program in acommunity, exist. Most people feel ashamed of performing CPR inpublic because they are afraid of failure or assume that they lackthe psychological and physical capacity to perform CPR(AmericanRed Cross 3). The Decision-making Philanthropists intends to changethis perception by equipping the residents of Birmingham with therequisite knowledge and skills to adequately perform aCardiopulmonary Resuscitation.

Theunavailability of competent training instructors and the cost of thetraining equipment are also expected to pose notable difficulties tothe implementation of the training operation.

PROGRAMDESCRIPTION

Asindicated above, cardiac arrests can be sudden. It is, therefore,beneficial to equip as many members of society as possible withCardiopulmonary Resuscitation skills to bring the number of cardiacarrest fatalities down.

Laerdalhas offered to provide CPR training kits to the Decision-makingPhilanthropists at a relatively reasonable price. The kits have beendesigned for use in the privacy of one`s home and during training.The kits have also been advanced as educationally useful. Aself-placed learning package comes with the kits. Thus, training arelatively large number of people will be achievable, even in theabsence of an instructor.

Asa result of the above expediency, the participants of this initiativewill be requested to extend the training that they get to theirfamily members and neighbors.

EachCPR kit will be equipped with a CPR kit Practice DVD, a personal CPRMannequin, Laerdal’s CPR booklet, program accessories, anddirections for use. The program only takes 30 minutes, which is veryconvenient for busy participants.

Thegroup, Decision-making Philanthropists, hopes to achieve thefollowing goals objectives with the support of The Institute forHappiness and Happiness Research.

Goal

Theprimary purpose of the Decision-making Philanthropists’ CPRTraining program is to offer CPR training to 300 residents of theBirmingham region. These partakers, by extension, will be expected totransfer the skills and knowledge that they receive to other membersof society. The participants will be picked from different parts ofthe city to ensure that this goal is realized.

Objectives

  • Increase the number of Birmingham residents that have knowledge on Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation to reduce fatalities during emergencies.

  • Equip other members of society with knowledge of CPR through the self-educational CPR Kits received from Laerdal.

  • Bring down the number of deaths and disabilities that arise due to cardiac arrests. Participants will be expected to be in a position to distinguish cardiac arrest signs, provide CPR as first aid, and dial 911 for help after the training program.

EventDetails

TheDecision-making Philanthropists’ CPR Training program will go onfor three consecutive days, beginning on the 26thof August 2016 at the Birmingham Social Hall.

Trainingsessions will be held from 7.00 a.m. to 11.00 a.m. The understandingthat the majority of people in the area report to their workstationsby 8.00 a.m. informed this decision. Thus, the individuals that haveto report to work will get the opportunity to receive training, andthe persons that can spare some time after reporting to work willalso get the chance to receive training. Also, stay at home parentswill be given an opportunity to cater to the needs of their homesbefore attending the training program.

Participantswill be separated into three groups. Two instructors will be allottedto each cluster. The social hall has a relatively large space thus,the participants will make use of the vast space that is availablefor concurrent training sessions. Participants will have to registerto receive personal training kits. After the exercise, all memberswill earn a CPR Training Certificate.

Audio-visualequipment will be set up one day before the event. Organizers will berequested to be present at the event earlier, to help with eventset-up. Breakfast will be given to all cooperators during a break at9.00 a.m.

EVALUATION

TheDecision-making Philanthropists intends to elevate the chances ofsurvival for cardiac arrest victims from 10.6% to 40%(SuddenCardiac Arrest Foundation). A week after the training program, areport will be sent to The Institute for Happiness and HappinessResearch. The report will include the number of residents thatbenefited from the training. One month later, a survey will bepresented to the IHHR. The study will provide information on thenumber of persons (family and friends of the trained participants)that benefited from the training program. After the completion ofthis data, the final report will be made accessible to The Institutefor Happiness and Happiness Research. The intention of this exercisewill be to evaluate the impact of the program, and whetherimplementing programs in other regions will be a prudent undertaking.

CONCLUSION

Suddencardiac arrest has been documented to strike persons of all ageswithout notice. Thousands of Americans have been reported to die fromsudden cardiac arrest and cardiovascular ailments before they receiveany form of Medicare because few people are equipped with adequateknowledge of the significance of CPR as first aid. Inadequatetraining lowers people’s confidence in offering first aid tocardiac arrest victims.

Withthe support of The Institute for Happiness and Happiness Research,the Decision-making Philanthropists intends to equip at least 1000individuals with knowledge of CPR. This training will help elevatethe survival chances of the victims suffering from sudden cardiacarrest.

TheDecision-making Philanthropists look forward to partnering with TheInstitute for Happiness and Happiness Research to save lives in theBirmingham region, through the Decision-making Philanthropists’ CPRTraining Program.

STATEMENTOF NEED

Cardiovasculardisease is considered the leading cause of death globally. Itaccounts for approximately 17.3 million demises annually. The numberis expected to go up to 26.3 million by the year 2030 (American HeartAssociation 1). Research indicates that cardiovascular deathsaccounted for up to 30% of global deaths in 2008. About 787,000persons died from a stroke, heart disease, and other cardiovascularailments in the U.S. in 2011. Heart diseases have been documented tostrike someone in America approximately once every forty-threeseconds. Cardiac arrests, mostly, strikes without warning age doesnot matter. Victims usually lose consciousness and stop breathing.Most attacks occur in offices, homes, and many other places. Suchcases usually proceed. Such manifestations, however, can beprevented. Knowledge of CPR can be used to save the lives of heartdisease patients (American Heart Association). CPR knowledge candouble the survival chances of a cardiac arrest victim if provided intime.

Nonetheless,some barriers, regarding initiating CPR Training program in acommunity, exist. Most people feel ashamed of performing CPR inpublic (American Red Cross 3). Reason being, they are afraid offailure or assume that they lack the psychological and physicalcapacity to perform CPR. The Decision-making Philanthropists intendsto change this perception by equipping the residents of Birminghamwith the requisite knowledge and skills to effectively perform aCardiopulmonary Resuscitation.

Theunavailability of competent training instructors and the cost of thetraining equipment are also expected to pose significant challengesto the implementation of the training exercise.

PROGRAMDESCRIPTION

TheCPR training adopts the community-based training approach to equipindividuals with prerequisite skills and techniques that will enablethem to perform the procedure with much ease. Through the adoption ofthe program, it would be possible for individuals to gain confidencewhen it comes to execution of CPR and help save many lives put atrisk due to the development of heart conditions (King et al., 312).Focus of the program will be equipping community members taking partin the training with hands-on skills needed to carry out CPR. Thetraining would be designed in such a way that the training isconducted in phases. The first phase batch of individuals selected atthe community level will receive the training. They will work withprofessionals equipped with the needed skills to perform CPR. Aftertraining, those who have gained the required skills will train otherindividuals selected in the second phase. The goal is to ensure thatas many as possible individuals get the necessary training at thecommunity level. Training will be based on capturing all the aspectsof CPR. The components of the entire procedure will be highlightedand individuals at the community level educated on how to carry outthe same. Further, considering the high number of people affected bythe issue, the program will be focused on training the largest numberpossible.

TheCPR training program aims at increasing the number of people equippedwith knowledge and skill regarding the performance of resuscitation.The community-based training model will be instrumental in informingtrainees various protocols of CPR and enable them to be more preparedfor dealing with the issue of CPR-related cases. Through the adoptionof the approach, it would be possible to save many lives that wouldotherwise have been lost due to lack of skills to conduct CPR (Hiroseet al.). In the course of the training, the participants will beprovided with free first aid kits that contain material needed toperform the procedures.

JUSTIFICATIONOF BUDGET

Thebudget proposal presented focuses on ensuring that the operationalactivities are met with much ease. The CPR training will be conductedin a rental facility at the community level. The funds providedshould cater for the running of daily activities. For example,volunteers for the program will need access to food and otheressential commodities. Labor costs are unavoidable. The program willneed to hire personnel who are skilled in overseeing the operationsof the facility.

EVALUATIONOF PROGRAM

Thesuccess of the program will be measured through feedback derived froma survey, reduced CPR death-related cases, and increased awarenessamong the community members in how to perform the procedure. A studywill be conducted in the community to determine their overall opinionon the CPR training program. Feedback provided by the communitymembers will serve as an indicator of the success of the project.Further, considering the increase in cases of death arising from lackof administration of CPR, a change in the status quo would be helpfulin confirming the success of the program. The quality of CPR providedshould be up-to-standard to address the health-related issue inquestion (Chenget al., 44)

SUSTAINABILITY

Thecompletion of the CPR training program should serve to disseminateknowledge to people in the community on how to perform the procedure.The skills learned should be shared across the community and passedon to subsequent generations to ensure sustainability (Nishiyama etal., 48). People need to get to carry out the procedure before thearrival of medical help. It would contribute to reducing deathsarising from lack of timely interventions. The CPR procedure shouldbe applicable for use in any given setting (Blewer,et al).
