EBP Project Implementation Model Change Plan
The following is a brief introduction to the topic:
EBP is important in clinical practice, as it integrates clinical expertise with scientific evidence and patient preferences, allowing for the most effective care possible to be delivered to patients. Change models are helpful in facilitating the implementation of EBP projects. This paper will apply the Rogers’ diffusion of innovation theory to an EBP project and carry the implementation through each of the stages.
Rogers’ Diffusion of Innovation Theory
Rogers’ diffusion of innovation theory is a widely used model for implementing change in healthcare. The model consists of 5 stages: Knowledge, Persuasion Decision, Implementation, Confirmation. In the knowledge phase, you will learn about how to use and benefit from an innovation. The persuasion stage involves convincing individuals of the innovation’s value and benefits. During the decision phase, it is decided whether or not to adopt the innovation. The innovation is put to use in the implementation stage.
EBP aims to implement a nurse led pain management program in order to better manage chronic back pain. This program will be implemented in an outpatient facility, using the implementation plan below.
Knowledge stage: First, the nurses will be educated and trained on chronic back pain and pain management. They will also learn about the nurse-led program for pain management. The review will also include the latest evidence regarding pain management, and benefits of the proposed program.
Persuasion Stage: The next step is to persuade the nursing staff and physicians of the program’s value and benefits. The next step is to convince the nursing staff and physicians of the benefits of the program. This involves presenting the data regarding the program’s efficacy, as well as addressing their concerns.
This is the decision stage. The nurses and doctors will decide whether or not to accept the program. For this purpose, the nurses and physicians will be required to attend an informational meeting so that they may discuss the program with each other and express their opinions and concerns.
After deciding to adopt a program, it is time to begin implementing the plan. This will involve training the nursing staff on the program’s procedures and protocols, and providing them with the necessary resources and tools to carry out the program.
Confirmation Stage: Finally, the program’s effectiveness will be assessed by tracking patient outcomes and soliciting feedback from patients and the nursing staff. Feedback will help to modify or improve the program if necessary.
In the following figure, you can see a conceptual model of this project. This model has three components, namely the innovator, the users, and the environment.
This innovative nurse-led program is based on evidence and is designed to better manage pain in chronic back-pain patients.
Adopters are nursing staff or physicians responsible for the implementation and execution of the program. They will need to be educated about chronic pain, pain management, and the program’s procedures and protocols.
This includes the outpatient facility where the program will take place. The clinic’s resources and culture will play a significant role in the program’s success.
The conclusion of the article is:
Developing EBP can be challenging. However, change models may help to facilitate this process. This paper applied Rogers’ diffusion of innovation theory to an EBP project aimed at improving pain management in patients with chronic back pain. The implementation plan involved educating the nursing staff and physicians, persuading them of the program’s value, facilitating a decision, implementing the program, and confirming its effectiveness. In the conceptual model, innovation, adopters and context were identified as key components.
