NURS-FPX6218 Assessment 3 Advocating for Lasting Change Introduction
Nurse leaders must be able to make effective financial and policy decisions. Equally important is the ability to communicate their vision for change to policymakers and provide objective, evidence-based support for their position with respect to the regulatory, political, social, ethical, legal, and financial aspects of systemic change.
This assessment provides an opportunity to develop a presentation aimed at soliciting resource and policy support for the community health care change you proposed in Assessment 3.

Preparation
The executive leaders at Vila Health accepted your change proposal and would like to move it forward. However, lasting change in a volatile regulatory and policy environment will require adequate funding and support from the applicable governing body or regulatory agency. Consequently, you have been asked to present the proposed change to policymakers to seek their support and funding for the change as an established policy for the organization and community.
To prepare for this assessment, you are encouraged to begin thinking about funding and securing policy support for lasting change. In addition, you may wish to:

Review the assessment requirements and scoring guide to ensure that you understand the work you will be asked to complete.
Review Guiding Questions: Advocating for Lasting Change [DOCX], which includes questions to consider and additional guidance on how to successfully complete the assessment.
Be sure that your audiovisual equipment works and that you know how to record and upload your presentation.

Note: Remember that you can submit all or a portion of your draft presentation to Smarthinking Tutoring for feedback before you submit the final version for this assessment. If you plan on using this free service, be mindful of the turnaround time of 24–48 hours for receiving feedback.

Presentation Design Tips
Being able to effectively address any audience is a necessary leadership skill. Remember that you are the speaker, not a projectionist. Your purpose is not to present a slide show. Your audience is there to listen to what you have to say, not read your slides—or worse, listen to you read them. Design your presentation slides to compliment and reinforce your message and engage your listeners.
The following tips will help you create presentation slides that work to your advantage:

Use a professional presentation template or one used in your organization.
Ensure that your slide background provides sufficient visual contrast for your text and graphics.
Consider your intended audience and how best to communicate effectively with them.
Focus on the content of your presentation and the development of your key points. Remember that your purpose is to garner support for your change proposal.
Create slides that augment your presentation. They should not be your presentation.

Presentation slides are a visual medium. Images are more effective than text at engaging your audience.
Be judicious in your use of bulleted lists. You might even consider a separate slide for some of your key points.

Use speaker notes to record the details you want to communicate to your audience.

Speaker notes can also serve as an audio recording script.

Use images and graphics, when the visual representation of information facilitates understanding or effectively reinforces key points.

Avoid using images that are simply decorative. They can be a visual distraction and do not contribute to your message.

Avoid using flashy slide transitions and animations. They can be both distracting and annoying. Keep your slide transitions consistent throughout the presentation.
Add a slide to the end of your presentation to prompt questions from the audience.
Proofread your slides to minimize errors that could distract the audience and make it more difficult to focus on the substance of your presentation.
