To make a change in practice, nurses must get buy-in from other stakeholders. By presenting a compelling argument with information each audience will care about, you are more likely to get people to listen. This assignment is designed to get you thinking about how what you present can and should vary depending on who you’re talking to.
Think about the following stakeholder groups:
- Organization administrators, e.g., CEO, CNO, supervisors
- Peer professionals, e.g., other nurses and interdisciplinary team members
- Patients and families
If you wanted to implement your suggested change in practice, how would you convince these groups of people?
- What data would you present? Why?
- What information from the literature would each of these groups find important or interesting? Why?
- How would you convey your plans to evaluate your proposed intervention and validate or dismiss its effectiveness to influence practice?
- How much improvement would you suggest the organization see before the suggested intervention would be worth the expense of doing something differently?
Provide APA-formatted in-text citations and references for all sources cited.
