Required Proposals for New HSG Initiatives, Projects, or Publications

At HSG, we’re continually impressed by our members and the education, research, and care initiatives they develop. As our network continues to grow and thrive, HSG is focused on ensuring that we have proper supports and clear processes in place to allow for efficiency, effectiveness, and collaborative success. To that end, we have developed an Initiatives Proposal Process with accompanying forms to help streamline the process.

If you, your committee, and/or working group is/are interested in beginning work on a publication or project, please use the information and forms below.

New Publications

Any publications that reference HSG in any way must be pre-approved.

  • If the publication does not require any resources from HSG other than review and approval of the document, please email Lynn Denise (lynn.denise@hsglimited.org  ) with details and she will work with the HSG Publications Committee for review and approval.
  • If you will be requesting any HSG funding or support, please adhere to the HSG Initiatives Proposal Process and complete the requisite forms.

Please allow 15 business days for Publications Committee review and a response.

New Education Initiative, Care Project, or Research Project

1. Complete the Preliminary Proposal Form.

This is a short form intended to provide leadership with high-level details so they can ensure it is in line with HSG’s mission and is feasible from a resource perspective.

The HSG Leadership Team will review this short form and a response will be provided within around 14 business days.

If your Preliminary Proposal Form is not approved, you will be provided with feedback and suggestions for a one-time resubmission.

If your Preliminary Proposal Form is approved, you will be asked to submit a more detailed proposal through either the HSG Education or Care Initiative Formal Proposal Form OR the HSG Investigator-Initiated Clinical Research Formal Proposal Form.

*Note: Some projects may be fully approved after review of the Preliminary Proposal Form, depending on the scope and resources requested for the project.

2. If requested, complete either the HSG Education or Care Initiative Formal Proposal Form OR the HSG Investigator-Initiated Clinical Research Formal Proposal Form.

The completed form will be reviewed. Reviewing parties may include but are not limited to: HSG Leadership Team, Executive Membership Committee, Scientific Advisory Council, Brainery Advisory Council, Operations Team, and/or Board of Directors.

If your Formal Proposal Form is not approved, you will be provided with feedback and suggestions for a one-time resubmission.

If your Preliminary Proposal Form is approved, you will be notified of the approval and provided with project parameters that may include but are not limited to: approved budget/resources (if any), project deliverables and milestones, project schedule, information regarding the project oversight body that will review and manage project progress and performance against the plan.

***Please note that request of HSG support or funding for an initiative does not guarantee availability.

New HSG Working Group

We want to provide a forum for collaboration & new ideas to seek treatments that make a difference. In doing so, we need to ensure that all projects are relevant to our mission, vision, and values. If you are an HSG member with subject matter expertise and you’re interested in starting a new Working Group, please complete the HSG Working Group Application. If a similar WG already exists, we will connect you with the Chair(s) of that WG.

Please review the Working Group Guidelines prior to submitting an HSG Working Group application.
