Section 1 Planning
What is your topic and what are your objectives?
When you present this case to the Quality and Safety Committee, you are required to de-identify the patient due to privacy issues
Who is your audience (identify who are the members of a Quality and Safety Committee within a hospital)?
Produce a brief outline of what it is you want to convey to your audience (you can use dot points for this section).
Identify which format you intend to use for your presentation and briefly discuss why you have chosen this format. Here are some examples of various formats:
- Support your choice with evidence from literature – include references for this step.
Identify and discuss the method you will use to evaluate that your message has been received and understood by your audience.
In your discussion explain why you have chosen this method to evaluate the impact of your presentation to the Safety Committee. Use current professional literature to assist you to develop and support your approach. Some examples of evaluation approaches include paper surveys such as questionnaires, face to face interviews with individuals, or interviews with a focus group.
Section 2 – Presenting your research
Your presentation to the committee can be in any one of the following formats. Only choose one format:
- A power point presentation which could be presented as an oral presentation to the intended audience. Power point Guidelines: Must not exceed 12 slides. Attach your power point as slide handouts to an audience. Submit as either a Word or pdf document – with no more than 2 slides per page and follow submission guidelines in the assignment template.
Section 3 – Seeking Feedback
As this clinical project forms part of your graduate year, you require feedback from the Quality Health and Safety Committee members, so that you can include their feedback as evidence in yourportfolio.
- A paper based evaluation tool which would be handed out to your audience or
- An interview schedule (specific questions) if you were to conduct individual or focus group interviews to evaluate the effectiveness of your strategy.
Section 4 - Literature Review
A final component of your graduate year project is to reflect upon implementing your changes in practice. You are required to conduct a literature review of the current professional literature on implementing change in clinical practice (in other words, translating research evidence to practice).
- the barriers to change in clinical practice overall
- the facilitators to change in clinical practice overall
- how might the barriers and facilitators impact on the implementation of the changes you wish to make regarding Betty White’s care
