Developing an Implementation Plan
Dissemination process involves synthesis of data obtained and development of a detailed report, which is presented to stakeholders. The two strategies would be conducted concurrently and guided by four major factors. These include goals and objectives for dissemination exercise, target group for which the dissemination is meant for, the medium through which disseminated results would reach the target besides the timing of the dissemination exercise (YCCI, 2001). Effectiveness of my dissemination plan would be guided by three major considerations. These are proper utilization of resources in the process of development the plan, sensitivity to the needs of my audience in terms of objectivity, language and level of information besides adoption of relevant dissemination methods (YCCI, 2001).
Raw quantitative data obtained from the evaluation process would be analyzed using statistical tools (excel programme) and coordinated with other forms of data obtained through observations, interviews and discussion forums (qualitative technique) (Section 3, n.d).
These would then be compiled in two different dissemination documents. The research summary document would present key conclusions from the various evaluation stages (YCCI, 2001). In order to achieve this goal, I will develop the document with two sub-sections. The first section will present key findings in summary or points, which will be discussed using subsequent paragraphs with reference to numerical data, graphs or tables. The second section will contain detailed analytical facts-sheets, which will be used to measure effectiveness of the entire evaluation plan and success of the proposed solution offered (YCCI, 2001).
Depending on consistency of the success realized (as would be indicated on summary documents), a policy brief would be developed. This is meant to inform the institution’s stakeholders on the possible changes that would be necessary in improving service delivery through upgrading of skills, staff and client satisfaction, reduction of errors in nursing practices and quality matters (YCCI, 2001; Kohn et al 2000; Institute of Medicine, 2001).
Actual release of the two dissemination strategies would be done during an internal meeting with relevant stakeholders.
