Competency 1: analyze the elements of a successful quality improvement initiative.

For this assessment, you will develop a Word document or an online resource repository of at least 12 annotated professional or scholarly resources that you consider critical for the audience of your safety improvement plan, pertaining to medication administration, to understand or implement to ensure the success of the plan.
By successfully completing this assessment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the following course competencies and assessment criteria:
Competency 1: Analyze the elements of a successful quality improvement initiative.
Analyze usefulness of resources for role group responsible for implementing quality and safety improvements with medication administration.
Competency 2: Analyze factors that lead to patient safety risks.
Analyze the value of resources to reduce patient safety risk or improve quality with medication administration.
Competency 3: Identify organizational interventions to promote patient safety.
Identify necessary resources to support the implementation and sustainability of a safety improvement initiative focusing on medication administration.
Competency 5: Apply professional, scholarly, evidence-based strategies to communicate in a manner that supports safe and effective patient care.
Present reasons and relevant situations for resource tool kit to be used by its target audience.
Communicate resource tool kit in a clear, logically structured, and professional manner that applies current APA style and formatting.
For this assessment, consider taking one of these two approaches:
Build on the work done in your first three assessments and create an online tool kit or resource repository that will help the audience of your in-service understand the research behind your safety improvement plan pertaining to medication administration and put the plan into action.
OR
Locate a safety improvement plan (your current organization, the Institution for Healthcare Improvement, or a publicly available safety improvement initiative) pertaining to medication administration and create an online tool kit or resource repository that will help an audience understand the research behind the safety improvement plan and how to put the plan into action.
assemble an online resource tool kit containing at least 12 annotated resources that you consider critical to the success of your safety improvement initiative. These resources should enable nurses and others to implement and maintain the safety improvement you have developed.
It is recommended that you focus on the 3 or 4 most critical categories or themes with respect to your safety improvement initiative pertaining to medication administration. For example, for an initiative that concerns improving workplace safety for practitioners, you might choose broad themes such as general organizational safety and quality best practices; environmental safety and quality risks; individual strategies to improve personal and team safety; and process best practices for reporting and improving environmental safety issues.
Following the recommended scheme, you would collect 3 resources on average for each of the 4 categories focusing on safety with medication administration. Each resource listing should include the following:
An APA-formatted citation of the resource with a working link.
A description of the information, skills, or tools provided by the resource.
A brief explanation of how the resource can help nurses better understand or implement the safety improvement initiative pertaining to medication administration.
A description of how nurses can use this resource and when its use may be appropriate.
Remember that you must make your site ‘public’ so that your faculty can access it. Check out the Google Sites resources for more information.
Here is an example entry:
Merret, A., Thomas, P., Stephens, A., Moghabghab, R., & Gruneir, M. (2011). A collaborative approach to fall prevention. Canadian Nurse, 107(8), 24–29.
This article presents the Geriatric Emergency Management-Falls Intervention Team (GEM-FIT) project. It shows how a collaborative nurse lead project can be implemented and used to improve collaboration and interdisciplinary teamwork, as well as improve the delivery of health care services. This resource is likely more useful to nurses as a resource for strategies and models for assembling and participating in an interdisciplinary team than for specific fall-prevention strategies. It is suggested that this resource be reviewed prior to creating an interdisciplinary team for a collaborative project in a health care setting.
Additionally, be sure that your plan 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.
Identify necessary resources to support the implementation and continued sustainability of a safety improvement initiative pertaining to medication administration.
Analyze the usefulness of resources to the role group responsible for implementing quality and safety improvements focusing on medication administration.
Analyze the value of resources to reduce patient safety risk related to medication administration.
Present reasons and relevant situations for use of resource tool kit by its target audience.
Communicate in a clear, logically structured, and professional manner that applies current APA style and formatting.

Journal of research, 23(15), 78.

Replay to student: Jorge Lerma
Follow the rule 3×3 paragraph
Nursing Research
For a qualitative study, I would use the phenomenological approach. The first principle of analysis of phenomenological data is to use an emergent strategy, to allow the method of analysis to follow the nature of the data itself (Jordan, 2017). For example, artistic depictions of experience would have to be approached differently from narratives or interview data.
In all cases, however, the focus is on a deep understanding of the meaning of the description. To get at the essential meaning of the experience, a common approach is to abstract out the themes. These are essential aspects “without which the experience would not have been the same”, discovered through a thoughtful engagement with the description of the experience to understand its meaning. The meanings can be implicit, and need to be made explicit with thematic analysis (Jordan, 2017).
The objective of phenomenology is the direct investigation and description of phenomena as consciously experienced, without theories about their causal explanations or their objective reality. It therefore seeks to understand how people construct meaning. Small samples (probably no more than 10 participants) are most suitable for this type of research.
Large samples can become unwieldy.
Data collection methods
Very open questions need to be asked.
The data collection tools that are most often used are:
Interviews/speech
Diaries/written
Drawings/non-verbal
Observation/visual
