Develop a presentation, augmented by 12-15 slides, for administrative leaders and stakeholders that outlines your plan to develop or enhance a culture of quality and safety within your organization or practice setting.
Note: Each assessment in this course builds on the work you completed in the previous assessment. Therefore, you must complete the assessments in this course in the order in which they are presented.
As a nurse leader, you will be expected to communicate effectively with leaders and stakeholders at all levels in an organization in a variety of ways, depending on your purpose and your audience. Being able to deliver effective presentations is one important skill you will likely be called upon to use often.
This assessment provides an opportunity to hone your presentation skills and enlist the support of stakeholder groups who will be key to achieving desired changes in the organization and developing or enhancing a culture of quality and safety.
This assessment is based on the work you have completed in the previous three assessments.
The report you completed in the previous assessment has convinced the executive leadership team of the benefits to the organization of taking the next step toward changes aimed at improving outcomes and cultivating a culture of quality and safety. You have been asked to follow up your report with a presentation to administrative leaders and stakeholders that outlines your plan to develop or enhance the organization’s culture of quality and safety. A number of key stakeholders will be unable to attend your presentation for a variety of reasons, so you have decided to provide those individuals with a video recording of the presentation.
You have the option of using Kaltura Media or another technology of your choice to record your presentation.
If you decide to use Kaltura, you are encouraged to:
- Install and test your recording hardware (if you have not already done so), using the installation instructions provided by the manufacturer.
- Practice using your recording hardware to ensure adequate audio and video quality.
- Refer to the Using Kaltura tutorial for directions on recording and uploading your video in the courseroom.
Note: If you require the use of assistive technology or alternative communication methods to participate in this activity, please contact Disability Services to request accommodations.
Note: Remember that you can submit all or a portion of your draft presentation to Smarthinking for feedback, before you submit the final version for this assessment. However, be mindful of the turnaround time of 24–48 hours for receiving feedback, if you plan on using this free service.
As you prepare to complete this assessment, you may want to think about other related issues to deepen your understanding or broaden your viewpoint. You are encouraged to consider the questions below and discuss them with a fellow learner, a work associate, an interested friend, or a member of your professional community. Note that these questions are for your own development and exploration and do not need to be completed or submitted as part of your assessment.
- How might you engage stakeholders to help develop, implement, and sustain a vision to actually change and improve patient outcomes?
- What arguments might be most effective in obtaining agreement and support?
- What recommendations would you make to implement a proposed plan for change?
