As a baccalaureate-prepared nurse, you will often find yourself in a position to lead and educate other nurses. This colleague-to-colleague education can take many forms, from mentoring to informal explanations on best practices to formal in-service training. In-services are an effective way to train a large group. Preparing to run an in-service may be daunting, as the facilitator must develop his or her message around the topic while designing activities to help the target audience learn and practice. By improving understanding and competence around designing and delivering in-service training, a BSN practitioner can demonstrate leadership and prove him- or herself a valuable resource to others. Scenario
For this assessment it is suggested you take one of two approaches: Build on the work that you have done in your first two assessments and create an agenda and PowerPoint of an educational in-service session that would help a specific staff audience learn, provide feedback, and understand their roles and practice new skills related to your safety improvement plan. Locate a safety improvement plan through an external resource and create an agenda and PowerPoint of an educational in-service session that would help a specific staff audience learn, provide feedback, and understand their roles and practice new skills related to the issues and improvement goals presented in your chosen context. Instructions
The final deliverable for this assessment will be a PowerPoint presentation with detailed presenter’s notes representing the material you would deliver at an in-service session to raise awareness of your chosen safety improvement initiative and to explain the need for it. Additionally, you must educate the audience as to their role and importance to the success of the initiative. This includes providing examples and practice opportunities to test out new ideas or practices related to the safety improvement initiative.
Be sure that your presentation addresses the following, which corresponds to the grading criteria in the scoring guide. Please study the scoring guide carefully so you understand what is needed for a distinguished score. List the purpose and goals of an in-service session for nurses. Explain the need for and process to improve safety outcomes related to a specific organizational issue. Explain to the audience their role and importance of making the improvement plan successful. Create resources or activities to encourage skill development and process understanding related to a safety improvement initiative. Communicate with nurses in a respectful and informative way that clearly presents expectations and solicits feedback on communication strategies for future improvement.
There are various ways to structure an in-service session; below is just one example: Part 1: Agenda and Outcomes. Explain to your audience what they are going to learn or do, and what they are expected to take away. Part 2: Safety Improvement Plan. Give an overview of the current problem, the proposed plan, and what the improvement plan is trying to address. Explain why it is important for the organization to address the current situation. Part 3: Audience’s Role and Importance. Discuss how the staff audience will be expected to help implement and drive the improvement plan. Explain why they are critical to the success of the improvement plan. Describe how their work could benefit from embracing their role in the plan. Part 4: New Process and Skills Practice. Explain new processes or skills. Develop an activity that allows the staff audience to practice and ask questions about these. In the notes section of your PowerPoint, brainstorm potential responses to likely questions or concerns. Part 5: Soliciting Feedback. Describe how you would solicit feedback from the audience on the improvement plan and the in-service. Explain how you might integrate this feedback for future improvements.
Remember to account for activity and discussion time.
For tips on developing PowerPoint presentations, refer to: Capella University Library: PowerPoint Presentations. Guidelines for Effective PowerPoint Presentations [PPTX]. Additional Requirements Presentation length: There is no required length; use just enough slides to address all the necessary elements. Remember to use short, concise bullet points on the slides and expand on your points in the presenter’s notes. If you use 2 or 3 slides to address each of the parts in the above example, your presentation would be 10–15 slides. APA format: Use APA formatting for in-text citations. Include an APA-formatted reference slide at the end of your presentation. Number of references: Cite a minimum of 3 sources of scholarly or professional evidence to support your assertions. Resources should be no more than 5 years old
The post For this assessment, you will develop an 8-14 slide PowerPoint presentation with thorough speaker’s notes designed for a hypothetical in-service session related to the improvement plan you developed in Assessment 2. appeared first on Splendidwritings.com.
