Assessment 4 Instructions: Advocating for Lasting Change

Top of Form

Bottom of Form

  • PRINT
  • Develop and record a 10-15 slide, asynchronous, audiovisual presentation for policymakers, soliciting resource and policy support for the community health care system change you proposed in the previous assessment.

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.
