Topic 7 DQ 1: Capstone Change Project Evaluation Plan

Students must develop skills related to systematic evaluation for intervention effectiveness. The content covered this week prepares students to evaluate the effectiveness of interventions and develop communication plans for the dissemination of information related to project outcomes. Synthesis of information from the process of evaluating outcomes (whether outcomes were met or not) generates new knowledge and adds to the body of knowledge for nursing practice.

Determine how the capstone project change proposal could be disseminated to leadership.
Create a plan for evaluating outcomes of the proposed nursing practice intervention used in the change proposal.
Integrate reflective practice into the practicum reflective journal.

Assessment Description
Describe one internal and one external method for the dissemination of your evidence-based change proposal. For example, an internal method may be the hospital board, and an external method may be a professional nursing organization. Discuss why it is important to report your change proposal to both of these groups. How will your communication strategies change for each group?
