Training and educating those within an organization who are responsible for implementing and working with changes in organizational policy is a critical step in ensuring that prescribed changes have their intended benefit. A leader in a health care profession must be able to apply effective leadership, management, and educational strategies to ensure that colleagues and subordinates will be prepared to do the work that is asked of them.
As a master’s-level health care practitioner, you may be asked to design training sessions to help ensure the smooth implementation of any number of initiatives in your health care setting. The ability to create an agenda that will ensure your training goals will be met, and will fit into the allotted time, is a valuable skill for preparing colleagues to be successful in their practice.
This assignment offers you an opportunity to develop and implement effective educational strategies.
To help ensure a smooth rollout and implementation of your proposed policy and practice guidelines, design a training session presentation for one of the role groups in the organization that will be responsible for implementation.
Provide a brief summary of your strategies for working with your chosen role group.
Explain the impact of the new policy on the group and the importance of the change to improve quality of care.
Explain how the group is important in implementing your proposed policy and practice guidelines, and why you chose this group to pilot your proposal.
Determine appropriate instructional content and explain to the group the learning activities and materials they should expect during the training session.
