Suppliers find that clinician support provides input legitimacy and lends credibility to their initiative. When standardization is disseminated in the diffusion phase, clinicians who feel that they have a voice in the process are more likely to support the initiative, providing output legitimacy. 9 Standardization that emerges from practice is more meaningful to healthcare professionals than standardization for its own sake. Outlining the goal of standardization in a way that is purposeful to healthcare professionals will aid in the adoption of an initiative. Ideally, promoting patient safety as the ultimate goal provides the most positive feedback (Timmermans, S. and Epstein, S. 2010).
More so, it helps get buy-in by the staff for the need to change. Every employee needs to know what’s wrong with the current processes for them to embrace change. The second stage is to make the changes and deploy as you guide the teams through the adoption of the changes (Levasseur, 2001). At this stage communication, support, and education are vital. It is essential to carry out the training on the new ways of doing things for the employees to adequately understand.
5.1 PILLARS OF CHANGE MANAGEMENT For the change to be effectively managed, there are five essential pillars that the change manager has to consider. The first, and most important, is communication since by nature; people have a yearning for information (Adams and Bourrage, 2014). Communication is the mechanism that can be used to engage people in change. It is through communication that a change manager or the project implementation manager gets informed about the exposure of stakeholders in the organisation to change. It is the responsibility of the management to ensure that the employees are well informed of the changes and adapting well to the effect of changes without obstacles (Ford et al, 2008).
I plan to influence change by adhering to the implemented quality checklist encouraging an overview of the list of surgical standards. Having one standard list with the surgical process will promote a compliance checklist to encourage consistency to surgical standards. This list will also promote reminders of adhering to areas needing improvement based on quality data. The staff will bring awareness to areas for personal improvement to meet compliance standards.
The model tells nurses what’s important and relevant when delivering individualised care by specialising and the right guidance suiting the needs of the patient. It helps devise, deliver and monitor care by means of format and structure which reassures nurses. ( Barrett, et al .2012). This is used to guide nurses with deliverer and the design of the care plan documentation, in order to ensure that all aspects of an individual’s life are integrated into effective care plan of care. Assessing patients under activities of daily living can help nurses picture a patient’s everyday life style and later making them aware of simple but important things such as management of fluids, diet restrictions etc.
Introduction Nurses as a professional, we are obligated to deliver the best care to patients. Every interventions that we performed are expected to be based on evidences and underpinned by rationales. In recent years, the idea of evidence-based practice is prevalent (G). To promote the development of evidence-based practice, we have to address the barriers and facilitators (B). In the following, I am going to give a description on evidence-based practice.
As much as effective management of change is necessary for the survival of this organization, research has reported high levels of failure of most change programs initiated in organizations (Mullins, 2010). These poor success rates of change management process in the organization can be correlated with lack of effective action planning. To effectively identify the issues that require the organization to introduce changes, it is imperative to explore the theoretical approaches to change management related to the highlighted
Management and quality improvement are essential in clinical practice and healthcare. The focus of this piece of writing is to discuss the impact of leadership and quality improvement in improving the quality of healthcare for patients. Leadership and quality improvement practices are essential in providing high quality patient care, it should not be considered to be an issue beyond the staff nurse Leadership Communication and Conflict Resolution Skills Communication skills are essential for effective leadership. The healthcare organisation is complex and fast paced, the need to be heard and understood is critical to the delivery of high quality care. Leaders listen to those around them, they are willing to accept the diverse set of views
In the past, researchers have proven that organisations that implement transformational leadership when dealing with change in the organisational context are more successful in managing employees’ outcomes (Chou, 2014). The role of a leader as not only a symbolic figure but also as a form of guidance helps create a smooth transition in times of turmoil. Many change efforts are unsuccessful because change leaders often overlook the central role individuals play in the change process (Kavanagh & Ashkanasy, 2006; Porras & Robertson, 1992). In workplace environments where employees are comfortable with the tasks delegated and other work processes, change becomes something difficult to be introduced, implemented and accepted (Reichers, Wanous, & Austin, 1997). This is because an introduction of organisational change leads to interruption of normal routines in an organisation.
