Topic 7: Capstone Change Project Evaluation Plan
Apr 25-May 1, 2022
Students must develop skills related to systematic evaluation for intervention effectiveness. The content covered this week prepares students to evaluate the effectiveness of interventions and develop communication plans for the dissemination of information related to project outcomes. Synthesis of information from the process of evaluating outcomes (whether outcomes were met or not) generates new knowledge and adds to the body of knowledge for nursing practice.
1. Determine how the capstone project change proposal could be disseminated to leadership.
2. Create a plan to evaluate outcomes of the proposed nursing practice intervention used in the change proposal.
3. Integrate reflective practice into the practicum reflective journal.
4. Demonstrate interprofessional collaboration during the creation of the capstone project change proposal.
Describe one internal and one external method for the dissemination of your evidence-based change proposal. For example, an internal method may be the hospital board, and an external method may be a professional nursing organization. Discuss why it is important to report your change proposal to both of these groups. How will your communication strategies change for each group?
In order to evaluate an evidence-based practice project, it is important to be able to determine the effectiveness of your change. Discuss one way you will be able to evaluate whether your project made a difference in practice.
Capstone Change Project Evaluation Plan
Review your strategic plan to implement the change proposal, the objectives, the outcomes, and listed resources. Develop a process to evaluate the intervention if it were implemented. Write a 150-250 word summary of the evaluation plan that will be used to evaluate your intervention.
The assignment will be used to develop a written implementation plan.
