Evidence-Based Change Project Paper

Evidence-Based Change Project Paper

I am a student masters who follow the nursing school professor nursing school BSN program as a part of my clinical rotation. My role included lecturing the students, grading, implementing changes, evaluating performance and analyzing data; to see if my Apprentice Model of teaching worked in a long run:)
The majority of the material is attahced as a file for your reference and instructors feedback for correction.
I’ve been using ‘Apprentice model” of teaching in class”( where the student presents the lecture).
So far in the past 15 weeks, we have seen positive results and noticed that students grades improved.

execution of your change project designed and implemented throughout both
courses. The final paper should be edited and professionally presented. An
attempt to incorporate all previous assignment feedback should be evident.
The final evidence-based change project paper should include the following
headings :
• Introduction and Background: You will begin to explain what your change
project topic is. Include background information you have obtained. Make
sure to discuss the importance of your topic and why there is a need for it
to be researched and implemented in your assigned facility or in advanced
practice nursing in general.
• Problem Identification and Description Using PICOT Format: Identify and
describe the problem in clear and concise language. Describe the
significance of the evidence-based project that can be implemented in the
selected setting to the nursing profession. Give a clear and explicit
statement of the problem and target population as well background of the
specific problem relative to the clinic or hospital setting.
• Critical Appraisal/Integrative Literature Review: Write a literature review
using peer-reviewed articles and books, as well as non-research literature
such as evidence-based guidelines, toolkits, and standardized
procedures. Provide reference(s) to recent literature related to your
specific unit. Identify and cite all sources of data according to APA
guidelines. The goal is to review and analyze the most current research to
support your project. Summarize the key findings, and provide a transition
to the methods, intervention, or clinical protocol section of the paper.
Describe any gaps in knowledge that you found and the effects this may
have on nursing practice as it relates to your change project topic. The
discussion of the literature review should be a synthesis of how each
article relates to your project.
• Project Aims, Values, and Desired Outcomes:
o Describe the project aim: The project aim should include examples
of features and functions that will occur as a result of implementing
your change project.
o Describe the project value: The value should describe the benefits
of the change project implementation to the stakeholders, the
organization, and the nursing profession.
o Describe the desired outcomes: Specifically, state the purpose,
quality focus, and viewpoint of the project as well as its expected
accomplishments. A project goal should reference the project’s
business benefits in terms of cost, time, and/or quality that address
individual and family healthcare needs or changes, results, impacts,
or consequences that the project has on people, programs, or
institutions. Goals and objectives should be measurable, shared,
and agreed on by all key stakeholders. They are directly linked to
the concept of project success factors.
• Theoretical Framework: Identify at least two independent theories or
conceptual models that relate directly to the planned project in addition to
the Plan Do Study Act (PDSA) cycle. Including a discussion of how each
theory or model applies to the individual project is essential.
• Proposed Evidence-Based Project Plan: Develop the project plan based
on your theoretical framework and the literature review, and include an
environmental assessment of the readiness for change.
o Develop the strategy or strategies for meeting the desired
outcomes that includes a work breakdown structure (timeline/task
list/Gantt Chart)—a hierarchical definition of the tasks and activities
of a project that normally begins with the highest-level activities and
works downward into the individual tasks.
o Include a project budget (table or spreadsheet) for the project that
addresses the needed personnel, equipment, and/or supplies that
may have associated costs.
o Plan the design and methodology used.
o Evaluation methodologies
• Actual Outcomes/Evaluation: Measureable evaluation methods
(indicators/metrics) are cost savings, improved efficiencies, access to care
(visits/procedures/admissions), patient/family satisfaction, associate
satisfaction, associate engagement, retention, clinical outcomes, injury
prevention, risk reduction, etc.
• Summary and Conclusions: Includes the following but is not limited to a
summary of the project, a summary of main points and findings, the
significance of project to the nursing profession, and any
recommendations for future research.
• References
• Appendices
The paper should be between 20 and 30 pages in length, not including the cover
page, references, or any appendices. It must follow APA Manual (6th ed.).

Week 6 comments
Goals: You did not reference your projects goal with the projects business benefits in items of cost, time, and/or quality that address individual and family healthcare needs or changes, results, impacts, or consequences that the project has on people, programs or institutions. Your project goals and outcomes are measurable but not stated.
what is the microsystem chosen and how does it fit? what is your change and/or nursing theory and how does it fit
how will you measure each of these outcomes listed?? what tools are you going to use?? what data will you collect?? what is the timeframe??

Week 8 comments.

I am not exactly sure what you were following for this assignment but it does not follow your PDSA cycle etc…
Your project plan should follow the PDSA cycle including a discussion of how each one applied to your project aims, goals and outcomes. This should follow your discussion of measureable evaluation of methods including cost savings, improved efficiencies, access to care patient/family satisfaction, associate satisfaction and/or engagement, retention, clinical outcomes injury prevention/risk reduction and/or others in your evaluation and outcomes. Work on this for final paper.

Work on this for final paper.
You did not include an analysis of the environmental assessment work breakdown structure including; timeline/task and/or list/Gantt chart, and did not speak to the hierarchical definition of the planned tasks and actives of the project beginning with the highest level actives down to the individual tasks in detail.
You also did not include a proposed project budget in a table or spreadsheet format; including needed personnel, equipment, and supplies, other facility associated costs. Additionally you did not include your measurable evaluation methods (indicators/metrics) including your measurement tool you plan to use and summarize a description of applicable items to your project such as; cost savings, improved efficiencies, access to care, patient; family satisfaction, associate engagement, retention, clinical outcomes, injury prevention and risk reduction…needs improvements.
