create a Design for Change proposal inclusive of your Practice Issue and Evidence Summary worksheet from your Capstone Project Milestone 1. Your plan is to convince
your management team of a nursing problem you have uncovered and you feel is significant enough to change the way something is currently practiced.
Write an introduction but do not use ‘Introduction” as a heading in
accordance with the rules put forth in the Publication manual of the American
Psychological Association (2010, p. 63). Introduce the reader to the plan with
evidence-based problem identification and solution-
Change Model Overview: Overview of the ACE Star model (the model we have been
discussing this session); define the scope of the EBP, identify the stakeholders, and
determine the responsibility of the team members.
Evidence: Conduct internal and external searches of evidence; integrate and
summarize the evidence summary worksheet from Milestone 1; develop a
recommendation for change.
Translation: develop a hypothetical action plan; include measurable outcomes,
reporting to stakeholders; identify next steps and disseminate the findings.
Conclusion: Provide a clear and concise summary, inclusive of the problem issue, the
five points of the ACE Star change model; and ways to maintain the change plan.
Citations and References must be included to support the information within each
topic area Refer to the APA manual, Chapter 7, for examples of proper reference
format- In-text citations are to be noted for all information contained in your paper that
is not your original idea or thought- Ask yourself, “How do I know this?” and then cite
the source. Scholarly sources are expected, which means using peer-reviewed journals
and credible websites.
Tables and Figures need to be added to the project. They should be embedded within
the body of the paper (see your APA manual for how to format and cite). Creating
tables and figures offers visual aids to the reader and enhances understanding of your
literature review and design for change-
