Plan of Reducing the Risk of Hospital Acquired Infections Comment by lilia:

The Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs) will be reduced using the following overall changed plan as addressed from the previous assignment. Through educating the hospital stakeholders, trustees and administrators to be interested in implementing the plan.

Evaluation of the Change Plan

The evolution process of the plan is broken down into a series of steps for it to be implemented and interpreted. First, a conceptual model for the plan is identified together with the critical evolution points. This step ensures that the stakeholders, trustees, and the administrator understands the plan of the structure along with the expected outcome. This will diverge the focus of all those who are to per take the plan to focus on the essential elements of the plan (In Assche et al., 2015).

The second process to be undertaken is the evaluation of the questions and defining the possible measurable outcomes. The outcomes of the plan of reducing the HAIs can be either short-term or long-term depending on the number and the extent of the effect over the overall impacts that are to occur. The short-term outcomes are those the reduced number of HAIs immediately after the plan while the long-term are those that take a while to be seen (Schloemer, & Schröder-Bäck, 2018).

Thirdly Third is the development of the appropriate evolution design. With the use of a successful evolution enables the collection of the information about the objectives together with the shortcomings of the plan (Chen, H. T. (2014). Also, who to be studied and when are selected in conjunction with the methods of data collection instruments.

Lastly, the data is collected, analyzed and presented to the interested audience. If the plan has been successful, then it will be incorporated into the health system to reduce the HAIs. The resources which are required in the project are the patients, healthcare, clinicians and the health types of equipment.

Dissemination Plan

This is a plan that is used to give back the project or the research findings back to those who will use the information practically. Dissemination will be able used to determine if the research intervention was successful or not. Creating a dissemination plan helps to answer the questions who, what, where, how and when. To create the plan, the following procedures are followed. First, the overall project goal is defined. A consistent message that runs across the platform of the activity is determined. This enables the external groups (outside of the setting to health care community) and the internal groups (unit or hospital where the change process has taken place) to receive the message from the topic itself (Brownson et al., 2012).

Following this is the definition of the audience. The question of who do you needyou need to reach and what you want to tell them are being answered. The attendance of the informed is determined with the interest and the influence level or whether they will understand or act from the message given. The audience that is, internal or the external are categorized to determine how to reach them and what to share with them.

Also, the activities to be done are being defined. Once you have known what to say together with the audience, you figure out how you are going to do it. It can be either through a conference, tweet, and newsletters among others. When this has been achieved, the timeline is planned. From this, you are to decide what the project needs to be disseminated and when to disseminate it. Later, the resources of where the activity will take place from are being planned and determined. In the end, the evaluation of the activities undertaken is done to determine the success of the dissemination (In Dang et al., 2018). Comment by lilia:
