Assessment Directions

 

TRANSLATION AND PLANNING

In this assessment, you will work through the planning and implementation stages of the project. This will require you to determine goals and resources needed and to select an evidence-based practice (EBP) model.

 

Research best practices to identify an effective intervention for your selected problem. Your goal is to gather evidence from scholarly literature to support the most effective intervention strategy.

 

The performance appraisal tools in this competency’s learning activities will help you determine appropriate scholarly sources of evidence to cite.

 

Locate at least 3 original research articles that provide evidence for your proposed solution to your selected problem.

  •            The articles must be peer reviewed, published within the past 5 years, and statistically significant.

 

Begin by writing a 350-word summary of each article in which you:

  • IDENTIFY current guidelines or best practices related to your proposed solution, or if there are protocols, the current standard of care.
  • DEFINE your proposed intervention(s) to address the problem.
  • EXPLAIN how the intervention will result in a solution to the problem.

 

 

Identify the solution you determined would be most effective in resolving the stated problem and define the intended outcomes of implementing the change (e.g., your improvement goal). For quality to improve, a change must occur. That change must be quantifiable. In other words, it must be measurable.

 

CREATE an implementation plan in which you:

EXPLAIN how you will measure the change and how you will know when you have reached your improvement goal.

CREATE a list of outcomes required to reach your outcomes goal. This will allow you to determine the actions needed and the priority of tasks that will result in the desired outcome.

DETERMINE who will be responsible for each outcome (typically each is assigned to a team member who is motivated to see the successful implementation of the plan).

DETERMINE the actions needed to take place for each outcome to occur. Questions to consider when determining what action needs to take place:

Who do we need to talk to?

       Departments

       Stakeholders

What needs to be decided?

  • What resources are needed?
  •        Budget  
  •        Personnel 
  •        Supplies and equipment
  • What milestones need to be set to know we’re on track?
  • When do we need to check on the progress of those milestones?

DEVELOP an overall time frame for the project.

  •            What potential setbacks do we need to plan for?

DEVELOP a risk management plan.

  •            Do any tasks need to be completed before taking this action?

ESTABLISH a budget and roles and determine who will be responsible for what.

DETERMINE how you will monitor progress, which provides you with the means of tracking actions as they are completed and will make you aware of actions that are late or off track.

  •            SELECT an EBP model to guide the implementation of the plan.
  •            Remember that without a measure, progress becomes a matter of opinion, and opinions can easily change over the course of an implementation timeline.

CREATE an evaluation plan. Your evaluation plan will define the standard of measurement for progress and will include:

  •           Measurable outcomes (both short-term and long-term formative assessments and summative assessments)
  •            Data to be collected and how and when it is to be collected
  •            Established evaluation points where data can be evaluated, and adjustments made to the implementation plan as a result.

 

 

 

COMPETENCY ASSESSMENT RUBRIC

1.      The assignment fully summarized current guidelines and practices or current standard of care, the proposed intervention to address the problem, and how the intervention will solve the problem.

2.      The assignment fully identified the solution that would be most effective in resolving the stated problem and defined the intended outcomes for implementing measurable change.

3.      The assignment fully described an implementation plan in which change will be measured and how such measurement will indicate the improvement goal has been reached, related a list of outcomes that indicate the outcomes goal has been reached, identified who will be responsible for each outcome, and defined the actions needed to take place for each outcome to occur.

4.      The assignment fully developed a time frame for the project and identified potential setbacks.

5.      The assignment fully developed a risk-management plan and identified any tasks needed before taking action.

6.      The assignment fully established budget, roles, and responsibilities, including the selection of an EBP model to guide the implementation plan and a means for measuring progress over the implementation timeline

7.      The assignment fully described an evaluation plan that will define the standard of measurement for progress and will include measurable outcomes, data to be collected and when it is to be collected, established evaluation points where data can be evaluated and adjustments made to the implementation plan as a result.

Assignment Directions

This assignment is designed to give you a greater understanding of regulatory agencies and accreditation bodies, including their functions and public reporting requirements, and how they impact quality and safety.

1.    Select and evaluate a regulatory agency or accrediting body.

2.    Discuss the history of the agency or body.

3.    Explain the reason for its existence.

4.    Summarize the agency’s public reporting of quality indicators:

  •              Frequency
  •              Where they are reported
  •              Why public reporting of these metrics is important
  •              Explain how the agency or body operates:
  •                        Current Functions
  •                        Organizational Structure
  •                        Governance

5.    Analyze the impact the agency or body has on quality at each level of health care:

  •               Healthcare organizations
  •               Nursing practice
  •               Patient care

Cite at least 2 sources in an APA-formatted reference page.
