Explain the basic models of quality improvement in healthcare. Course Scenario C

Explain the basic models of quality improvement in healthcare.
Course Scenario
Chaparral Regional Hospital is a small, urban hospital of approximately 60 beds, and offers the following:

Emergency room services
Intensive care
Surgical care
Obstetrics
Diagnostic services
Some rehabilitation therapies
Inpatient pharmacy services
Geriatric services
Consumer physician referral services

Recently, the CEO has been hearing complaints from both patients and staff, varying from long wait times to rude physicians. You have been hired to design and implement a Quality Improvement Plan to help uncover quality problems and to satisfactorily resolve them.
Scenario Continued
The CEO has met with you to let you know that some members of the Board of Directors are questioning the value of developing a quality improvement plan. She has asked you to create an executive summary and an information sheet to be included in the next Board packet.
Instructions
Topics for the executive summary should include:

What is a Quality Improvement plan?
Why do healthcare facilities create improvement plans?
Why would you recommend the facility create and implement a QI plan?

After completing the Executive Summary, you will create a one-page information sheet for the Board that they can use to answer questions about QI plans.

The information sheet should give your CEO and the Board of Directors enough information to have an educated conversation with patients and other stakeholders on the value of QI plans.
Make sure to use audience-specific language and tone on your information sheet. Remember, you are writing this information sheet for your CEO and the Board of Directors.
Be creative, and make your information sheet fun and organized.

Program evaluation should be developed based on and in conjunction with the goal

Program evaluation should be developed based on and in conjunction with the goals and objectives of the public health program. The PRECEDE-PROCEED model presents a good framework for the match between different program stages and objectives and the different types or levels of evaluation.

In this assignment, you will discuss the different types of evaluation and provide examples of how they may be used to evaluate public health programs. One categorization of evaluation is “process, impact, and outcome.” Another common categorization is formative (process) and summative (impact and outcome).
The distinction between impact and outcome is important for public health programs. ”Impact” refers to the immediate health or behavioral results. “Outcomes” are the long-term effects that may be difficult to measure but are important to identify.

Using the readings for this module, the Internet, and the Argosy University online library resources, review process evaluation, and outcome evaluation. Respond to the following:

Examine how process evaluation differs for impact and outcome evaluations.
Provide appropriate examples to illustrate your key points and support your statements with scholarly references.

Write your initial response in approximately 200 words. Apply APA standards to citation of sources.

1-I think the list of questions you posted is a great way for not only determining if something is within the nurse’s scope of practice, but also if it’s appropriate and safe for the nurse to perform.  There are so many considerations for the nurse to take into account.  Do you have the proper education?  The proper training?  The last questions regarding accepting accountability for the outcome is the icing on the cake.  I’ve been in situations where I didn’t feel the orders I was given were appropriate.  Following the order wouldn’t make the patient worse, I just felt that there was a better alternative.  This is where detailed nurses notes really are important.  Good post.
   
  
2-As nurses we should always be stopping to think about what we are doing before we act. I was recently put in a position to possible learn a new skill. Upon more research, I found out this was not within my scope and it was squashed. We need to think about our patients safety and the license we worked hard for at all times. Of course, we want to continue our education and learn new things. I love the questions outlines for us to remember when usure. We can also go to management if needed as well. Always protect yourself and your patient. 
  
3-It is a great thing that we have organizations like these that are regularly updating our Scope of Practice guidelines as medical and technological interventions are always changing. The framework with questions to ask prior to performing acts are very beneficial and can put a nurse as ease when feeling uncomfortable. It is also great that we have these resources readily available to us if we need them. I find myself turning to these resourcces regularly when in doubt and when performing procedures for the very first time. It also helped having nurses around willing to guide me when it’s my first time doing something. These help decreasing the patient’s risk for harm. So yes, when in doubt, always go to your available resources. Also stated by the NCSBN on their website, “The laws of the nursing profession can only function properly if nurses know the current laws governing practice in their state. Ignorance of the law is never an excuse!”

You are the global marketing vice president at Dyson. You have been asked to attend a meeting with James Dyson, the company’s founder. Dyson’s CEO and the head of Dyson’s New Product Innovation department will also be in attendance.
“Thanks for meeting with me today,” James says. “Market intelligence has shown that our major competitors—Hoover, Shark, and Bissell—are all developing new cordless vacuum cleaners with a longer battery life than what’s currently available.” 
James Dyson looks to you: “I need you to participate in a new cross-functional product development team that will research the feasibility of creating a cordless vacuum cleaner that works for one hour on a single charge. We also need to know if there’s even a market for this type of vacuum,” he says. 
“We envision that this new vacuum will be used primarily in the home, but keep in mind, we want to be able to adapt it easily and cheaply for light commercial use. One way of doing this is by using swappable battery packs.”
Dyson’s new product innovation process involves both incremental and radical innovation. Radicalness is the combination of the degree of differentness and newness. This includes innovations that are new to the world, the industry, or to Dyson. Most radical innovations are new to the world (e.g., digital photography), and are very different from existing processes and products. On the other hand, incremental innovations lie at the other end of the spectrum; they are not exceptional or particularly new, they may currently exist in the industry, and may involve minor tweaks, adjustments, or changes from existing products. A radical innovation may become an incremental innovation over time as its underlying technology becomes more common (Schilling, 2013).
Once your idea is developed, write a value proposition for your new product.
Present the results of your activities in a two-page report identifying your new product idea, explaining the procedure you used to develop the process, and state your value proposition. Be sure to support your work with the required readings, scholarly sources, and reliable nonscholarly sources (such as Bloomberg, Yahoo! Finance, Money, Forbes, Fortune, and Harvard Business Review)

4-5 pages due by Feb 4 …   You have learned many of the basic elements of a chemical dependency center in today’s world. Now it is time to write a report that will be used in a final proposal for a new treatment center. Consider what you have already learned, and continue your research about addiction and recovery theories, services, and continuum of care to design the most effective treatment center possible. Based on current issues that you have learned about, consider the changes you believe could be made to improve this evolving system.

Start with some of the following questions: 

What do you think the future best practices might look like?
How might you care for the professionals in a field while they are caring for their clients?
What kind of professional development will the staff need to make this center a success? How might this improve services to those in need? 
Given what you know and what your group discovered and discussed about modern treatment facilities, use your imagination to come up with a futuristic model of an addiction and recovery services center. Be sure to address the following information in a proposal of 4–5 pages:

Objective

Type of facility
Need for the facility
Purpose of the facility
Current issues or challenges the facility is designed to address
Mission statement of the facility
Philosophy or theories practiced within the facility 
Logistics

Populations to be served by the facility
Treatments used in the facility
Physical appearance of the facility
Type of staff
Professional development that will be available to staff
