Topic 3 DQ 2
You have been selected to serve on a community outreach committee within your state’s nursing organization. The committee includes registered nurses of different specialties. At your first meeting, it becomes evident that not everyone is in agreement with a recent position statement about the role of spiritual care, with some members arguing they will no longer support the committee if the position statement is not revised or reversed. As a nurse leader and change agent, how would you approach the committee? How could you draw from change theory to address these concerns and encourage collaboration on the committee?
Implementing Change With an Interprofessional Approach Presentation

Consider a situation you experienced previously where change did not go as planned in your health care organization.
Create a 10-15-slide PowerPoint presentation in which you will assess the situation and the steps that should have been taken to successfully implement change.
Create speaker notes of 100-250 words for each slide. Include an additional slide for the title and references.
For the presentation of your PowerPoint, use Zoom to create a video presentation. Refer to the topic Resources for additional guidance on recording your presentation with Zoom. Include an additional slide for the Zoom link at the beginning and another at the end for References.

Describe the background of the situation and the rationale for and goal(s) of the change. Consider the ethical, social, legal, economic, and political implications of practice change in your response.
Outline the advanced registered nurse’s role as change agent within the interprofessional and dynamic health care environment.

Discuss an appropriate change theory or model that could be used to achieve results. Explain why the theory or model selected is best for the situation. Include the ethical, social, legal, economic, and political implications of applying the change management strategies to practice change in your response.
As an advanced registered nurse, outline how you would initiate the change.
