Identify a quality, change, or safety theory you will use to support the implementation of your quality and/or safety program. Provide evidence that supports the use of this theory within the program you designed.

Identify a quality, change, or safety theory you will use to support the implementation of your quality and/or safety program. Provide evidence that supports the use of this theory within the program you designed.

Details:
The Quality and Sustainability Paper is a practice immersion assignment designed to be completed in three sections. This is part three of the assignment. Learners are required to provide a theoretical framework that supports the design and implementation of their evidence-based quality and/or safety program and discuss expected outcomes.
General Guidelines:
Use the following information to ensure successful completion of the assignment:

  • This assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.
  • Doctoral learners are required to use APA style for their writing assignments. The APA Style Guide is located in the Student Success Center.
  • This assignment requires that you support your position by referencing at least six to eight scholarly resources. At least three of your supporting references must be from scholarly sources other than the assigned readings.
  • You are required to submit this assignment to Turnitin. Please refer to the directions in the Student Success Center.

Directions:
Write a 2,000-2,500 word paper that provides the following:

  1. Identify a quality, change, or safety theory you will use to support the implementation of your quality and/or safety program. Provide evidence that supports the use of this theory within the program you designed.
  2. Provide the design of your evidenced-based quality and/or safety program that can be implemented to improve quality or safety outcomes in your identified entity.
  3. Discuss expected outcomes of your implementation and how to ensure their sustainability.

Support your position by referencing at least five to six to eight scholarly resources. At least three of your supporting references must be from scholarly sources other than the assigned readings.

10.0 %Identification of Quality, Change, or Safety Theory to Support Implementation of Quality or Safety Program A theory is not used to support implementation of the quality and/or safety program. Theoretical support is discussed, but a specific theory is not identified to support implementation of the quality and/or safety program. Evidence that supports the use of this theory in the proposed program is not presented. Theoretical support is discussed that references a specific theory. It is unclear how this theory supports implementation of the quality and/or safety program. Evidence that supports the use of this theory in the proposed program is not presented. Theoretical support is discussed using a specific theory. The theory supports implementation of the quality and/or safety program. General evidence that supports the use of this theory in the proposed program is presented. Theoretical support is thoroughly discussed using a specific theory. The discussion provides insight in to successfully implementing the quality and/or safety program. Strong evidence that supports the use of this theory in the proposed program is presented.
25.0 %Design of Evidence-Based Quality or Safety Program to Implement in Proposed Health Care Entity Program design of quality and/or safety program is not presented. The program does not utilize an evidence-based design. Program design of quality and/or safety program is referenced, but a clear description of the program is missing. The program does not utilize an evidence-based design. Program design of quality and/or safety program is described, but numerous details are missing. There is no substantiation that the design can be implemented. The program partially includes an evidence-based design. Program design of quality and/or safety program is generally described and there is adequate substantiation that the design can be implemented. The program utilizes an evidence-based design. Program design of quality and/or safety program is clearly described and substantiates that the design can be implemented. The program utilizes an evidence-based design. Strong evidence is provided to support the program design and implementation.
20.0 %Expected Outcomes and Sustainability Expected outcomes and steps to ensure sustainability are not discussed. Expected outcomes and sustainability are referenced, but no specific outcomes or steps to ensure sustainability are discussed. Expected outcomes and sustainability are discussed, but the projected outcomes lack support for claims, or the plan for sustainability lacks specific steps. Expected outcomes and sustainability are discussed. Projected outcomes are supported, and general steps to ensure sustainability are presented. Expected outcomes and sustainability are thoroughly discussed. Projected outcomes are supported with clear evidence, and very specific steps to ensure sustainability are discussed.
