Background Statement

The Research Foundation was formed in 1984 as the fundraising entity for Research Medical Center and was a supporting organization to the Medical Center, which was founded in 1886. With the purchase of the hospital by HCA, a for-profit hospital corporation in 2003, The Research Foundation concluded its affiliation with the Medical Center and became an independently operating, non-profit organization. Our mission is to empower people to lead healthier lives through our health education and scholarship programs.

Impact Statement

ACCOMPLISHMENTS IN 2016:

  1. During the 2015-2016 academic year, our ThinkFirst Injury Prevention program reached more than 43,000 area youth in Greater Kansas City. The program provides school-based assemblies for students grades K-12 aimed at preventing traumatic injuries such as information on safe driving, seat belt usage, pedestrian & bicycle safety, water safety, and avoiding violence.  
  2. We continued our court-ordered Young Traffic Offenders Program for young drivers ages 16-24. The program is held at two trauma centers in the area and teaches young drivers why safe driving practices are important by taking them through the path they would take at a hospital following a crash and sharing the perspective of crash victims, law enforcement officers and trauma personnel. The YTOP program reaches approximately 500 young drivers each year.
  3. Our Nursing Scholarship and Nursing Faculty Development Programs continue to enrich the nursing profession. During 2016, we made more than $200,000 in scholarships available to undergraduate nursing students. 
  4. During 2016, we launched a new "ThinkFirst About Concussions" program to educate high school athletes about concussions, and the signs, symptoms and risks.  The program is led by an athletic trainer who teaches young people how to recognize the symptoms of concussion and then the testimony of a young athlete who sustained multiple concussions and then a brain injury helps students understand the human side of these injuries and the effects they have.

GOALS FOR 2017:

  1. ThinkFirst Injury Prevention Program – Increase awareness among youth and share strategies for the prevention of traumatic injuries through testimonials from injured individuals and reach 43,000 youth during the 2016-2017 academic year
  2. Nursing Scholarships – Support the increase of qualified professional nurses to meet the complexities of the current and future health care system through our scholarship program which will make available more than $225,000 in scholarships during 2017 - more support than ever before.
  3. ThinkFirst About Concussions - Expand the program to more schools in 2017.   
Needs Statement TOP PRESSING NEEDS: 
  1. ThinkFirst of Greater Kansas City – Additional marketing is needed to expand our program into new schools.  There are nearly 600 schools in our ThinkFirst service area and only about 15%-20% utilize our program in a given year. The program is also dependent on having enough Voices for Injury Prevention (VIP) speakers that have sustained a brain and/or spinal cord injury who are close in age to the youth we are reaching.
  2. Finances – Our organization must raise $770,000 in contributions to meet our annual operating budget. 
  3. Volunteers – We currently have approximately 100 volunteers that assist our organization in a variety of ways. We continue to seek additional volunteers to engage in the important work of our organization.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement

As a physician in Kansas City for more than 30 years, I have a vested interest in the health and well-being of those in our community. That is why I serve as chairman of The Research Foundation Board of Directors.  The Research Foundation’s programs have a unique and valuable niche in what they provide for our community.

For example, in order to improve the lives of patients in our community that we need all of the other vital people who work side by side with us. We must continue to invest in talent for the future of the nursing profession. Our Foundation is investing scholarship funds to encourage students to enter the nursing profession and to encourage nurses to share their life experiences by educating the nurses of tomorrow.

ThinkFirst was founded nationally by a group of neurosurgeons who were frustrated at not being able to cure or “fix” brain and spinal cord injured patients. These physicians shared the belief that prevention is the only cure.  Our organization serves as the Greater Kansas City chapter for ThinkFirst and educates youth in the community on injury prevention, especially safe driving and seat belt safety.  In 2017, we will celebrate the 30th anniversary of our ThinkFirst chapter.We are pleased to carry on this unique program that has been shaping the lives of youth for three decades.

I am proud to lead this organization along with my colleagues on the board.

Programs
Description

The Research Foundation serves as the Kansas City chapter for ThinkFirst, a national, award-winning injury prevention program. The program teaches youth grades K-12 to protect their body from a traumatic injury. The school-based assembly program is provided free to schools in the 6-county metro area and delivered by speakers who have sustained a brain or spinal cord injury. Presentations cover topics including seat belt usage, helmet usage, motor-vehicle safety, bicycle and pedestrian safety, water safety and avoiding guns and violence. Programs are age-appropriate. The local program reaches between 40,000 and 55,000 youth in Greater Kansas City each year. ThinkFirst of Greater Kansas City was named "Chapter of the Year" in 2008 by the ThinkFirst National Foundation, and winner of the "People Saving People Award" from the Kansas Department of Transportation in 2011. ThinkFirst of Greater Kansas City was also awarded the statewide Tempe Humprhey Award from the Missouri Coalition for Roadway Safety in 2014.

Program Frequently Assessed Yes
Short-Term Success
This program increases the awareness of risk factors that can cause traumatic injuries such as:
1.  Lack of a seat belt when in a vehicle
2.  Lack of helmet when on a bike, skateboard, scooter, etc.
3.  Inattentive driving habits
4.  Driving while impaired or drowsy
5.  Speeding and racing
6.  Checking the depth of water before you dive
7.  Avoiding guns and violence
As a result of the program, seat belt and helmet usage will increase among the youth who attend our assembly. Ultimately, it will help prevent these youth from a traumatic injury or death on the roadway. The stories they hear and the information they receive is unforgettable and has a life-long affect.
Long-Term Success
Children learn safety habits that they will carry throughout their lives. Teens who drive or are preparing to drive learn of the devastating consequences of just a moment’s indiscretion and how to make smart choices to protect themselves and others from traumatic injuries and death. The effectiveness of students hearing directly from a speaker who has been injured is apparent in a ThinkFirst for Teens study which was implemented among high school students. Students indicated they are influenced most by hearing from someone who has been injured, compared to being influenced by facts on injury prevention.  In a qualitative study implemented three months after seeing the presentation, students remember the injured speaker far more than any other program component. Long term impact also shows three quarters of the students indicate ThinkFirst made a positive impact on their behavior with respect to implementing safety measures, and nearly all students state the presentation is helpful.
Program Success Monitored By
We monitor the success of the program through the repeated demand for the program year after year. Our chapter was founded in 1987 and 30 years later we still get requests from more than 100 schools each year who want the program. 
 
We also measure our success through the many letters and e-mails we receive from teachers, principals, school nurses and kids thanking us for bringing this unique and powerful program to their school and for providing it free of charge.
 
In the fall of 2008 we began the implementation of an online survey to measure program success and each week many favorable responses are added through our online survey tool.  Results show that 100% of the schools where we present would schedule us in the future and would recommend us to another school.  We utilize all of the feedback to continue to improve the program and better educate youth. 
 
Faculty members report an increase in seat belt usage and helmet usage at their respective schools following our assemblies.
Examples of Program Success

Two weeks after we presented an assembly at a local high school, we received a call from their school nurse that three of their students had been involved in a serious roll-over crash. All three students were wearing seatbelts and came away from the crash with minor cuts and bruises. The students credited the message they heard at the ThinkFirst assembly with why they wore their seatbelts that day.

We also received a call from a principal at a school where we had presented a few days earlier. The principal shared that one of their 6th grade students had been involved in a head-on collision involving a wrong way driver on the highway who was running from police. Based on the extensive damage to the vehicle when the police arrived, they did not expect any survivors. However, the student, her father and a friend all survived with minor injuries. The student attributed what she learned at the ThinkFirst assembly days earlier with saving her life.

Description
The Research Foundation is committed to providing support for nursing students and faculty.  Our organization provides the following types of support for nursing students and faculty:
  1. Undergraduate scholarships for nursing students from pre-selected institutions.
  2. Scholarships for nursing faculty members from select institutions who are enrolled in doctoral study.
  3. Annual awards and Research grants for nursing faculty from select institutions.
Category Education, General/Other Student Financial Aid
Population Served Adults, ,
Program is linked to organization's mssion Yes
Program Frequently Assessed Yes
Short-Term Success
As a result of our scholarship programs, undergraduate nursing students are able to focus more on completing their degree, which is quite rigorous, and less on their ability to pay for their education.
 
For those faculty members currently teaching nursing students at three pre-selected institutions, scholarships are encouraging them to obtain a doctoral degree.  Currently the nursing profession has less than 1% of all nurses prepared at the doctorate level.
Long-Term Success
Long term success for this program is defined by:
  1. An increase in the number of undergraduate nurses that enter the nursing profession.
  2. An increase in the number of nursing faculty who obtain a doctoral degree.
Program Success Monitored By The population of nursing faculty in the United States is aging and is fueling the nursing shortage because as these faculty members retire, there aren't enough master's prepared nurses to replace them. As a result, tens of thousands of qualified students are turned away from nursing programs each year because of a shortage of faculty. Anytime we can help a nurse become a faculty member we are increasing the pool of nurse educators in Kansas City.
Examples of Program Success
"There is a shortage of doctorally-prepared faculty.  Scholarship support from the Foundation will help immensely.  Cost is one of the main reasons many faculty members do not pursue their doctorate - most are still paying their loans from their BSN and MSN nursing degrees."  -Victoria Uzomah, scholarship recipient
 
Our program currently makes available the following annual scholarships:
  • 6 scholarships - PhD in Nursing
  • 50 scholarships - BSN in Nursing
Description
The Young Traffic Offenders Program (YTOP) offers judges a unique way to deter young people from speeding, drunken driving and other related driving offenses.  When young drivers, ages 15 to 24, are convicted of these types of offenses a judge can sentence them to attend YTOP.  YTOP is a 6-hour class that aims to change the lives and driving habits of young drivers.  Participants follow the path they would take after being seriously injured in a car crash.  They visit the ER, Radiology, ICU and Physical Therapy and hear testimonials from healthcare professionals who care for crash victims.  They also hear from young people who have sustained a brain injury or spinal cord injury as the result of a crash.  They share their personals stories and explain how their injury occurred, how it could have been prevented and how their life has changed as a result.  Officers from the Missouri Highway Patrol share their experiences working crash sites and making death notifications to families.  The Young Traffic Offenders Program was awarded the "Show Me Safety" Award by the Missouri Coalition for Roadway Safety in 2012.  This program educates approximately 500 young drivers each year in Greater Kansas City.
Category Education, General/Other Adult Education
Population Served Adolescents Only (13-19 years), Adults,
Program is linked to organization's mssion Yes
Program Frequently Assessed Yes
Short-Term Success
The short-term goal is for young drivers to leave the class with a better understanding of the serious responsibility of driving.  They will use their seat belts on a daily basis and encourage everyone in their car to buckle up.  They will avoid speeding, and avoid driving aggressively, distracted or impaired.
Long-Term Success
The long term goal of the program is that fatalities on local roadways will be decreased and young people will become safer drivers.
Program Success Monitored By
Program success is monitored by a pre-test and post-test given to attendees to measure their driving behavior and beliefs before and after the program.  In addition, some attendees will give permission to be surveyed 3 months after taking the YTOP class and 6 months after to help determine if their habits have changed and if they have had any motor-vehicle offenses during that time period.  Attendees are also required at the close of the program to write a one-page essay to the judge that sentenced them sharing what they learned and how their driving habits might change.
Examples of Program Success
An excerpt from an attendee's essay:
This program was AMAZING! Not only is this a life changing experience, it was very emotional for me. This class has changed me because I used to always turn the radio up, or even get distracted by my phone. While doing that of course, I would take my eyes off the road. The reason why I’m in this class today is because I rear-ended a car. Thinking about it now, that crash could have been deadly. I just don’t know what I would have done if I caused anyone to die, because of a stupid mistake behind the wheel. Crashes are so preventable. I’m so happy that the courts made me take this class. Not only will it help me influence others, and give them important facts about driving, it taught me something that will change my life for forever! I can’t wait to test out this “new” driver, ME because I know now what NOT to do behind the wheel, and how fast your life can change in a second. 
Description Each year since 2004, The Research Foundation has coordinated a variety of daylong health-related symposiums to present innovative and cutting edge information to healthcare professionals, sharing the most up-to-date trends in the industry. Through its partnership with The Ed Bixby Institute for Postgraduate Medical Education at Research Medical Center and the Institute for International Medicine, topics have included cardiology, stroke, diabetes, infectious disease, time critical diagnosis, oncology, and primary care. Physicians, nurses and allied health professionals from virtually every hospital in the region and a variety of physician offices attend these symposiums each year.
Category Education, General/Other
Population Served Adults, ,
Short-Term Success
The short-term success of the program is that local healthcare personnel can receive continuing medical and nursing education without incurring the expense of leaving Kansas City.  In addition, many are learning things they can take into their healthcare setting immediately.
Long-Term Success
The long term success of this program is that the overall health of Kansas City area patients is enhanced through the education of our local physicians, nurses and allied health professionals.  Allowing our local  healthcare community to learn from regional and national experts improves the care provided to our local patients.
Program Success Monitored By
Success of this program is measured by the evaluations that physicians nurses and allied health professionals are required to complete at the end of each symposium.
Examples of Program Success
We receive a lot of feedback on our evaluations but below are just a few examples:
  • "This was one of the best symposiums I have attended in years-every speaker was awesome-thank you so much." 
  • "All the speakers were superb and very knowledgeable."
  • "What an excellent group of presenters; very educational and effective program from first to last presentation."
Description  ThinkFirst About Concussions seeks to educate young athletes about the seriousness associated with concussions including steps to prevent concussions, recognizing symptoms, seeking medical evaluation and following concussion guidelines, which are all vital for full recovery and the prevention of more serious effects. The program provides a free assembly for student athletes led by an athletic trainer.  The program also features a young athlete who has suffers from permanent effects following past concussions and a brain injury playing football at a local high school.
Program Budget $10,000.00
Category Education, General/Other Educational Delivery
Population Served Adolescents Only (13-19 years), ,
Program is linked to organization's mssion Yes
Program Frequently Assessed Yes
Short-Term Success ThinkFirst About Concussions will raise awareness of the seriousness of concussions and how young athletes can protect their brain.
Long-Term Success In the long term, ThinkFirst About Concussions will prevent athletes from returning to play earlier than they should so that their brain can heal properly.
Program Success Monitored By We will measure our success by the number of young athletes we are able to educate.  This will correlate to the number of local high school athletic departments that host the program.
Examples of Program Success

Program success will be defined by the number of schools we can book to host to the ThinkFirst About Concussions assembly.  For example, the program was piloted in 2016 at Center High School.  Because they have such a high incidence of free and reduced school lunches, the Foundation covered the cost of ImPACT testing for their fall athletes.  ImPACT is a cognitive test that measures how the brain functions prior to a concussion so that post-concussion a follow-up test can be completed to compare brain activity and determine when an athlete is fit to return to play.

 We will determine the program a success if we are able to grow it to 10 schools hosting an assembly for their athletes. during the 2017-2018 school year.  We would hope that number would continue to grow each year.
