Thoughts in the mind of l0oree

Advance Composition discussion

What is a prospectus and why do you believe that it is important to the writing process? Conduct some independent research and post an example of a prospectus.

A prospectus is a formal introduction to a research paper. It includes the thesis and questions that are proposed. It includes who is involved in the process of answering the questions. It includes the purpose for finding the answers. The prospectus also includes table of contents, summary, and bibliography.

The prospectus helps the writer organize what is being researched and to decide what is necessary to find answers for the questions. It will also help the writer to see what is confusing and not necessary. The prospectus is not only helpful to the writer but also to the reader. It will help a reader decide if the research is worth reading, or if they would like to explore further.

I am interested in the topic of the cost of epogen vs. cost of what Medicare will pay for a dialysis patient. What does epogen cost? What does epogen do? Why is epogen necessary for dialysis patients? What hemoglobin level is mandatory for Medicare reimbursement? Why is there not a generic for epogen? Can patients get a transplant without using epogen and getting blood transfusions?

Working Thesis:

I am wanting to find out why the cost of the medication Epogen is so expensive that it is costing Medicare so much to reimburse that they are placing mandatory Hgb levels for reimbursement, but at the same time, the cost of the Epogen to keep the Hemoglobin at a pay level is too much for the clinic to afford without the reimbursement. Will patients get sicker and require more healthcare that will increase payments without the Epogen? More hospitalizations etc…..

Here is a copy I found of a prospectus:

By reading your example I can clearly see how this will help focus the researcher’s writing. The organization of the paper can be determined also due to there is so much information that you want to look at all the information and place it in the paper in the order that makes sense to the reader. It also gives validation as to why it is being researched in the first place. In the end of the prospectus the writer might determine that it is better left alone. After all research is sifted the arguments on both sides a compromise might be reached. You never know what might happen until the research ends. On another point, with the research recorded and written down others might decide to research more on that topic also.

  8. This may or may not make sense to your committee to include in your prospectus, but it is helpful to write out, nonetheless. Quite simply, this section explains when and how you will write your dissertation. Do you need to spend some time in archives before you write? Do you foresee writing two chapters together because of their shared content/goals/foci? If you need to travel and/or require funding for your dissertation, how and when might this happen? What will you do if you are not able to travel? As with many other sections of your prospectus, your research plans can change quite a bit, but setting up a research plan might make you aware of goals that are too far-reaching for the amount of time available at UCI, or you might realize that you need to write more than one chapter at once, requiring you to make important temporal and psychological adjustments.
