Project Change Proposal Presentation-Nursing Examples
My evidence-based capstone change project aims to prevent and reduce HAIs among hospitalized patients. I presented my project proposal to an interprofessional audience and stakeholders comprising the head of the nursing department, unit manager, and preceptor. I commenced my presentation by highlighting to my audience why I chose a topic on the prevention/reduction of HAIs. Although standardized care, such as hand washing with soap and water, has been widely adopted, the implementation of EBP will aid in curbing HAIs more effectively and improve patient outcomes (Fregonese et al., 2023) (Project Change Proposal Presentation-Nursing Examples).
The infections reduce the quality of care and patient safety to poor care outcomes. They lead to prolonged hospitalization and high patient and facility health expenses. Thus, implementing evidence-based care bundles would be vital to address the problems (García et al., 2021). I also presented evidence-based information as part of the literature on HAIs. Consequently, I presented my objective to portray what I wanted to achieve with my change or proposed evidence-based care bundle intervention. Furthermore, I also highlight my strategic plan for implementation, resources required and measurable outcomes. In addition, an evaluation plan that would guarantee I successfully implement and sustain the change (Project Change Proposal Presentation-Nursing Examples).
The overall feedback from my audience was positive, encouraging, and supportive to implement and sustain the proposed change. The audience was attentive and engaged by asking questions throughout my presentation. My preceptor guided the project and emphasized the significance of health promotion during the implementation of my project. Evidence-based health promotion communicates and incorporates interventions’ effectiveness into practice and policy (Schloemer et al., 2021) (Project Change Proposal Presentation-Nursing Examples).
My preceptor claimed that collaborating with the patients and their families/caregivers by providing education about the care bundle elements would help implement and sustain the change. Besides education, the head of the nursing department and the unit manager asked how else the nurses and other healthcare providers would be trained on the care bundle intervention. The unit manager also asked how I would ensure I obtain the maximum resources required to implement the change and how I would use resources optimally. My preceptor also enquired how I would make improvements after conducting the evaluation (Project Change Proposal Presentation-Nursing Examples).
During my practicum, I collaborated with healthcare professionals to meet diverse patient needs. The interprofessional collaboration will have a positive influence on my future professional practice. Through Interprofessional practice, I have learned that care coordination among healthcare professionals and their patients/families and caregivers prevents medical errors, improves patient experience, and delivers better patient outcomes (Davis et al., 2022). Therefore, I have become a competent nurse practitioner who will deliver high-quality care at affordable costs to save current and future health spending. More so, by eliminating operational inefficiencies and workflow redundancies (Project Change Proposal Presentation-Nursing Examples).
