Assignment: Change Implementation

Assignment: Change Implementation And Management Plan

It is one of the most cliché of clichés, but it nevertheless rings true: The only constant is change. As a nursing professional, you are no doubt aware that success in the healthcare field requires the ability to adapt to change, as the pace of change in healthcare may be without rival.
As a professional, you will be called upon to share expertise, inform, educate, and advocate. Your efforts in these areas can help lead others through change. In this Assignment, you will propose a change within your organization and present a comprehensive plan to implement the change you propose.
To Prepare:

  • Review the Resources and identify one change that you believe is called for in your organization/workplace.
    • This may be a change necessary to effectively address one or more of the issues you addressed in the Workplace Environment Assessment you submitted in Module 4. It may also be a change in response to something not addressed in your previous efforts. It may be beneficial to discuss your ideas with your organizational leadership and/or colleagues to help identify and vet these ideas.
  • Reflect on how you might implement this change and how you might communicate this change to organizational leadership.

The Assignment (5-6-minute PowerPoint presentation):
Change Implementation and Management Plan
Create a narrated PowerPoint presentation of 5 or 6 slides with video that presents a comprehensive plan to implement the change you propose.
Your presentation should be 5–6 minutes in length and should include a video with you as presenter.
Your Change Implementation and Management Plan should include the following:

  • An executive summary of the issues that are currently affecting your organization/workplace (This can include the work you completed in your Workplace Environment Assessment previously submitted, if relevant.)
  • A description of the change being proposed
  • Justifications for the change, including why addressing it will have a positive impact on your organization/workplace
  • Details about the type and scope of the proposed change
  • Identification of the stakeholders impacted by the change
  • Identification of a change management team (by title/role)
  • A plan for communicating the change you propose
  • A description of risk mitigation plans you would recommend to address the risks anticipated by the change you propose

By Day 2 of Week 11

Work Environment Assessment- this is my discussion
Using the Clark Healthy Workplace Inventory (Clark, 2015) my workplace ranks 90, or very healthy.  Why it ranks as healthy or civil is that between units of the hospital there is great communication between units, to the extent that is a need on one unit as far as staffing, another unit will offer to help, this is the norm, and not the exception for our hospital. We also feel supported by management during times of crisis, I work in two distinct areas where things can escalate very quickly, both in inpatient psych, and Children pavilion for adolescent psych patients. We know we will always get backup from other building staff and security if things get escalated where there is danger to patients or staff.
Success in an organization comes from hardworking people who have a strong mission and vision with great strategies in place. This depends greatly on the leadership, management, and the team. To put things in perspective, the introduction of the workplace health status would give a broader picture. To be discussed below is a brief description of the results of the Work Environment Assessment at Chicago Lakeshore Hospital and based on the results, the explanation of how civil is this place with the reasons behind the claim. Also, this discussion includes a description of a situation where incivility in the workplace has happened and how was it addressed.
Workplace health is the status of the workplace concerning the workers, how civil is the place, and the overall environment safety for the employees. Lack of civility at the workplace contributes to poor employees’ job satisfaction, lack of courtesy and respect among peers, and it leads to poor patient outcomes (Tips to Improve Civility in the Workplace, 2017). Incivility at workplaces has the potential to emotional and physical distress to the workers and that can cause poor quality care and patient outcomes (Armstrong, 2017). To assess the civility of the workplaces, researchers have discovered tools to help assess the workplaces and the Work Environment Assessment is one of the tools.
Using the Work Environment Assessment tool to assess Chicago Lakeshore Hospital revealed 90 which is a moderately healthy place. This means, in this organization, people live by the shared mission and vision, there is trust and respect among the workers, and communication at all levels is clear (Clark Healthy Workplace Inventory – americannursetoday.com. [n.d.]). The result assures the presence of teamwork and high levels of employees’ satisfaction. The workload is distributed equal and the organization offers competitive salaries. Based on my hospital workplace assessment results, the majority of the employees would recommend the place as a good place to work and overall there are high levels of employee satisfaction, therefore better outcomes (Clark Healthy Workplace Inventory – americannursetoday.com. [n.d.]).
Incivility incident at the workplace
Courtesy and respect are not only meant for people of a certain rank within the organizations. These basic values and others are for everyone. Clark (2017), emphasizes all nurses have the obligation to foster healthy workplaces with an atmosphere of dignity, professionalism, and respect. Unfortunately, studies reveal incivility at workplaces, bullying, and lack of mutual respect (Armstrong, 2017). Incivility at the workplace has been linked to poor performance which impacts patient safety and the quality of patient outcomes (Armstrong, 2017). Marshall and Broome (2017) state that “workplace violence, incivility, and bullying are barriers to developing safe environments for providers and can occur in any setting” (p.261). The American Nurses Association (ANA; n.d.) defines incivility as “one or more rude, discourteous, or disrespectful actions that may or may not have a negative intent behind them” (para.2).  This brings back the memory of my former workplace. Doctors were very much valued and respected, but the nurses did not receive the same respect from the doctors. At times, nurses were hesitant to call the doctors for notification of patient condition change simply because of the fear of the expected response. There was no mutual respect. I am not sure how did this problem resolve after leaving the place but a few years down, the hospital was sold out to another company.
Conclusion
Civility at the workplace is not only important for the workers’ feelings it also influences overall performance, productivity, and patient outcomes. The consequences of incivility at workplaces “can result in life-threatening mistakes, preventable complications, and harm or even death of a patient” (Clark, 2017). It is with that intensity that the workplace health assessment should be one of our priorities. Despite the individual differences, we must find a way to improve civility at our workplaces. The first step towards improvement is to assess the current status and the Work Environment Assessment is a great tool.

Our goal is to help as many students as possible with their assignments, i.e. our prices are affordable and services premium.

  • Discussion Questions (DQ)

Initial responses to the DQ should address all components of the questions asked, including a minimum of one scholarly source, and be at least 250 words. Successful responses are substantive (i.e., add something new to the discussion, engage others in the discussion, well-developed idea) and include at least one scholarly source. One or two-sentence responses, simple statements of agreement or “good post,” and responses that are off-topic will not count as substantive. Substantive responses should be at least 150 words. I encourage you to incorporate the readings from the week (as applicable) into your responses.

  • Weekly Participation

Your initial responses to the mandatory DQ do not count toward participation and are graded separately. In addition to the DQ responses, you must post at least one reply to peers (or me) on three separate days, for a total of three replies. Participation posts do not require a scholarly source/citation (unless you cite someone else’s work). Part of your weekly participation includes viewing the weekly announcement and attesting to watching it in the comments. These announcements are made to ensure you understand everything that is due during the week.

  • APA Format and Writing Quality

Familiarize yourself with the APA format and practice using it correctly. It is used for most writing assignments for your degree. Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in Loud-cloud for APA paper templates, citation examples, tips, etc. Points will be deducted for poor use of APA format or absence of APA format (if required). Cite all sources of information! When in doubt, cite the source. Paraphrasing also requires a citation. I highly recommend using the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.

  • Use of Direct Quotes

I discourage over-utilization of direct quotes in DQs and assignments at the Master’s level and deduct points accordingly. As Masters’ level students, it is important that you be able to critically analyze and interpret information from journal articles and other resources. Simply restating someone else’s words does not demonstrate an understanding of the content or critical analysis of the content. It is best to paraphrase content and cite your source.

  • LopesWrite Policy

For assignments that need to be submitted to Lopes Write, please be sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI) percentage BEFORE you do a “final submit” to me. Once you have received your report, please review it. This report will show you grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors that can easily be fixed. Take the extra few minutes to review instead of getting counted off for these mistakes. Review your similarities. Did you forget to cite something? Did you not paraphrase well enough? Is your paper made up of someone else’s thoughts more than your own? Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in Loud-cloud for tips on improving your paper and SI score.

  • Late Policy

The university’s policy on late assignments is a 10% penalty PER DAY LATE. This also applies to late DQ replies. Please communicate with me if you anticipate having to submit an assignment late. I am happy to be flexible, with advance notice. We may be able to work out an extension based on extenuating circumstances. If you do not communicate with me before submitting an assignment late, the GCU late policy will be in effect. I do not accept assignments that are two or more weeks late unless we have worked out an extension. As per policy, no assignments are accepted after the last day of class. Any assignment submitted after midnight on the last day of class will not be accepted for grading.

  • Communication

Communication is so very important. There are multiple ways to communicate with me: Questions to Instructor Forum: This is a great place to ask course content or assignment questions. If you have a question, there is a good chance one of your peers does as well. This is a public forum for the class. Individual Forum: This is a private forum to ask me questions or send me messages. This will be checked at least once every 24 hours.
