Preparing for Change
What steps might be utilized to move a practice issue from development and design through implementation to the realization of positive outcomes? How does theory provide a framework? What barriers might you encounter?
- Review the theories and frameworks (i.e., change, organizational, behavioral) presented in Chapter 3 of the course text, Translation of Evidence into Nursing and Health Care Practice, and conduct additional research of your own. What insights do these theories provide regarding how to take your practice issue from development and design through implementation to the realization of positive outcomes?
- Think about your practicum setting and evaluate the readiness for change in this environment. Identify barriers and facilitators for change.
- Consider strategies to address the barriers and assess why they might be effective based on theory.
