Evidence Based Practice Proposal

Delivering the Intervention

It is important to perform orientation andtraining to ensure that a solution is successfully implemented. Thissensitization will focus on the areas of study. Secondly, it isequally essential to explain the research to the intervention team ina transparent manner so that they can understand what is required ofthem. A two-hour presentation can be performed and afterward. Duringthe alertness session, the project staff will be trained on the useof the new system while assessment resumes. Short quizzes will beadministered to gauge the level of progress regarding the solution.

Strategies to Deal with Challenges

Problems can emerge during the implementation of anew project or program. As such, there should be stringent measuresthat will alleviate such encounters. The cost of implementation is amajor barrier that must be tackled. The funding should thus beenhanced based on the financial implications of the pilot project.The pilot also informs the team on other issues such as errors andbias. These problems can be dealt with by ensuring thatimplementation begins in small scale with careful monitoring andsolving the problems as it expands.

The designed plan is to embrace a model whichmaintains literature support that ultimately works well. To achievethis, the primary resources that give out the most accurate, reliableand relevant information concerning the intervention, treatment andrehabilitation of the various health conditions must be selected.Monitoring will be done by comparing against strong patient healthimprovement as well as the ease of use and reliability by thehealthcare providers.

Plans for implementation

Maintenance requires a close observation of thesuccess rate of the project. This involves an evaluation of how thegoals and objectives are met as well as the cost implications and therelated problem-solving attainment. This means that the team willhave to maintain the project and minimize changes as much aspossible. Stability is vital since the team is already conversantwith the new program and keeping it that way is critical forpractical use.

As mentioned before, after the successfulimplementation, the project will now have to roll out on a smallscale basis. One of the departments will have the opportunity topioneer the project and in the meantime, close monitoring andevaluation will continue. Later in time, other departments willreceive the same on a gradual basis with similar observations todetect the rate of success and any unforeseen issues that may havebeen overlooked.

It is not uncommon for revision of projects afterimplementation. More often than not, sections that had beenneglected, assumed or ignored earlier may come back to haunt theproject. In such situations, the project implementation team willhave to devise means to correct such uprisings. Some considerationsneed to adhere to regarding revision of the project. First andforemost, little errors that do not affect the success and efficacydo not require the complete alteration of the project. Only thenecessary ones need to be taken care of. Similarly, huge errors andmistakes may jeopardize the final outcomes of the project and thusmay call for a total change or reconsideration.

Sometimes, the performance of the proposedsolution may fall way below the expected standards. This could be dueto miscalculations or poor planning. In such cases, continuing with aproject that does not meet its allocated targets may have detrimentaloutcomes regarding wastage of resources and also negativeimplications to the patients. When such a scenario arises, it isimperative for the project team to abandon the project and look forbetter means of attaining the primary goals.
