You have likely looked around your healthcare organization at some point and identified a problem. Perhaps you have said, “There must be an easier way,” or “That process just doesn’t make sense.” The issue may not have been addressed, due to time or money constraints—or due to legacy thinking about the right way to perform the function.
The good news is that healthcare develops at a rapid pace. By looking at the research landscape, nurse executives can identify tested innovations that may provide novel solutions for lingering organizational problems.
For this Assignment, you seek out innovations to address a workplace problem, and you pitch that innovation to colleagues at a staff meeting.
Identify a systems or organizational performance problem in your current or previous workplace that may be helped by an innovation.
Search in the library databases for articles on healthcare innovations that may address the problem you have identified.
Select at least three research articles to use for this Assignment.
Use the PowerPoint template in the Learning Resources to complete this Assignment.
The Assignment (8- to 10-slide narrated PowerPoint presentation with speaker’s notes; no longer than 10 minutes)
Imagine that you are presenting on the identified problem at a staff meeting in your current or past workplace. For the meeting, develop an evidence-based narrated PowerPoint presentation to support application of an innovation drawing from the ones you have researched.
Your narrated presentation should be 8–10 slides long and include speaker’s notes. The narration should be no longer than 10 minutes. In your presentation, address the following:
In your presentation, address the following:
Describe the problem you have identified and why it is important to address. Be specific.
Synthesize the three research articles you read and summarize the takeaways you can apply to your proposed innovation.
Explain your proposed innovation and how it would address the systems or organizational problem you have identified. Be specific and provide examples.
Describe the potential impact of the innovation on patient experience and outcomes. Be specific.
Explain how you would apply the innovation in the workplace, based on the research.
With the exception of a title slide and reference slide, each slide should contain speaker’s notes and voiceover narration that reflect what you would say were you to give a live presentation.
