Leadership Learning Experience. Smoking Cessation Education

Develop a project within a practice setting that allows you to develop leadership skills. You will identify a problem area in a practice setting that you specifically want to address.

A. Develop a written proposal by doing the following:
1. Identify a problem or issue related to practice, policy, population, or education that aligns with the organizational priorities you seek to solve.
a. Explain the problem or issue, including why it is applicable to the area of practice you chose and the healthcare environment.
2. Discuss your investigation of the problem or issue.
a. Provide evidence to substantiate the problem or issue (e.g., organizational assessment, national source documents, evidence from a stakeholder).
3. Analyze the state of the situation using current data.
a. Analyze areas that might be contributing to the problem or issue.
(***Sections 1 to 3 is already done. I have attached a paper that you previously wrote for me. Please see attached***)

(A solution that I would like to include is setting up a committee that once a month will set up a table at the main hospital entrance given out information to patients and employees on smoking cessation. Also to help people reach out or how to connect to obtain free nicotine gums and patches)
4. Propose a solution or innovation for the problem or issue.
a. Justify your proposed solution or innovation based on the results of your investigation and analysis.
You will now propose a realistic and measurable solution or innovation for the problem or issue. You will need to:
-Justify your proposed solution or innovation based on the results of your research investigation and analysis
-include a basic plan of how to implement your solution in your environment
-consider the proposed solution from the viewpoint of the manager of the healing environment
-Consider the expected impacts of your proposed solution as well as possible unanticipated consequences.

5. Recommend resources to implement your proposed solution or innovation. Include a cost-benefit analysis of your proposed solution or innovation.
Materials
for the project itself
to communicate the changes to others
that may be unused or wasted from current practices
Personnel
for changes in their work environment
who actively oppose your implementation
for more staff
for reduced staff
for those no longer needed
Money
for materials as noted above
for additional staff training and lost time for them at work
to pay more/less highly educated staff

6. Provide a timeline for implementation based on your proposal.
Time
to develop the project
to instruct others in the changes to their workflow
to get staff up to speed using the new function

7. Discuss why each key stakeholder or partner is important for the implementation of the solution or innovation.
a. Summarize your engagement with the key stakeholders or partners, including the input and feedback you received.
b. Discuss how you intend to work with those key stakeholders or partners in order to achieve success.
Discuss why each key stakeholder and/or appropriate partner is important for the implementation of the solution or innovation.
Summarize your engagement with each key stakeholder and/or appropriate partners, including the input and feedback you received.
Discuss how you intend to work with each of those key stakeholders and/or appropriate partners in order to achieve success.

8. Discuss how your proposed solution or innovation could be implemented, including how the implementation could be evaluated for success.
Write a clear plan of how your proposed solution or innovation would be implemented. Use the plan to answer the following:
Who will need to give authorization to implement the proposal?
Who will be needed to train others or actually do the implementation?
Who will need to be trained in the new practices?
How will you communicate with all these people?
How will you communicate with those who will be impacted even if they don’t participate (e.g., patients)?
What is the timeline for each step of your implementation plan based on your proposal?
What are the criteria to judge success of the proposal?

Evaluation of a project must be included in the original plan. That evaluation includes both how you will gather data about the impact and outcomes of the project and the criteria for success.

Include a cost benefit analysis of your proposed solution or innovation. For more detailed instructions on providing details of your solution, including a cost benefit analysis and money matters.
Include a specific section or table in your project to discuss the resources needed for your project.

B. Explain how you fulfilled the following roles during your process of investigation and proposal development:
1. scientist
2. detective
3. manager of the healing environment
Examine the definitions of the three professional nursing roles. Explain how you fulfilled the following roles during your process of investigation and proposal development:
scientist
detective
manager of the healing environment
