Develop a 4-6 plan that will allow you to evaluate your intervention.
Note: Each assessment in this course builds on the work you completed in the previous assessment. Therefore, you must complete the assessments in this course in the order in which they are presented.
Once an intervention is planned and implemented it is important to evaluate the degree to which the outcomes of the project were achieved. By evaluating the desired outcomes of an intervention, it is possible to make more informed decisions about opportunities for continuous improvement. It is also possible to identify strategies and approaches that could be useful in improving one’s personal practice in other contexts or care areas.
· Read Guiding Questions: Evaluation Plan Design [DOC] . This document is designed to give you questions to consider and additional guidance to help you successfully complete this assessment.
· As you prepare to complete this assessment, you may want to think about other related issues to deepen your understanding or broaden your viewpoint. You are encouraged to consider the questions below and discuss them with a fellow learner, a work associate, an interested friend, or a member of your professional community. Note that these questions are for your own development and exploration and do not need to be completed or submitted as part of your assessment.
. What specific piece or pieces of technology did you propose using in your implementation plan?
. How did the type of technology you chose impact the development of your implementation plan?
. How will the incorporation of the technology you propose make your implementation plan more successful?
Note: The assessments in this course are sequenced in such a way as to help you build specific skills that you will use throughout your program. Complete the assessments in the order in which they are presented.
Your evaluation plan design will be the forth section of your final project submission. The goal for this is to finalize the outcomes that your plan is seeking to achieve and to create a plan to evaluate the degree to which those outcomes were achieved after your intervention plan has been implemented. This will allow you and your care setting to determine the degree to which the plan was successful in addressing the identified need of your target population and setting.
You will also discuss ways in which your role allows you to lead change and drive quality improvement, and to potentially improve the project in the future. In addition, you will reflect on how the project will leave you better prepared for success in other aspects of your current and future career. Provide enough detail so that the faculty member assessing your implementation plan design and discussion will be able to provide substantive feedback that you will be able to incorporate into the final draft of your project.
At minimum, be sure to address the bullet points below, as they correspond to the grading criteria. You may also want to read the scoring guide and the Guiding Questions: Evaluation Plan Design document (linked above) to better understand how each criterion will be assessed. In addition to the bullet points below, provide a brief introduction that refreshes the reader’s memory about your problem statement, your planned intervention, and how you intended to implement your intervention (this should only be a single paragraph).
Reminder: these instructions are an outline. Your heading for this this section should be Evaluation of Plan and not Part 1: Evaluation of Plan.
Part 1: Evaluation of Plan
· Define the outcomes that are the goal of an intervention plan.
· Create an evaluation plan to determine the impact of an intervention for a health promotion, quality improvement, prevention, education, or management need.
Part 2: Discussion
· Analyze the nurse’s role in leading change and driving improvements in the quality and experience of care.
· Explain how the intervention plan affects nursing and interprofessional collaboration, and how the health care field gains from the plan.
· Explain how the current project could be improved upon to create a bigger impact in the target population as well as to take advantage of emerging technology and care models to improve outcomes and safety.
Reflection on Leading Change and Improvement
· Reflect on how the project has impacted your ability to lead change in personal practice and future leadership positions.
· Reflect on the ways in which the completed intervention, implementation, and evaluation plans can be transferred into your personal practice to drive quality improvement in other contexts.
Address Generally Throughout
· Integrate resources from diverse sources that illustrate support for all aspects of an evaluation plan for an intervention, as well as for professional discussion about the plan.
· Communicate evaluation plan and discussion of the project in a professional way that helps the audience to understand how the outcomes will be evaluated, as well as what was learned through the project process.
