For this section of your Leading and Influencing Change paper, you will identify a workplace or workforce issue that you are interested in analyzing and proposing a possible solution. Identifying your issue can start with observing practice in your workplace, asking members of the team about their difficulties in delivering care, looking through policies and procedures and guidelines of care, and asking clients about their perceptions of the care they are receiving.
In addition to defining your topic, Part I should include a brief review of the literature. The literature reviewed can consist of systematic reviews, meta-analyses, clinical guidelines, individual studies, review articles, and clinical articles. If you encounter any difficulties in finding sources or narrowing your topic to find fewer sources, please do not hesitate to contact your faculty member or the Excelsior Librarians.
