For this project, you will assume the role of MSN-prepared nurse planning to initiate an interprofessional team concerning one of the following topics. The list contains various possible teams needed to review policies, practices, and/or organizational functions. (Choose one):
Policies for renewals or updates for best practices related to Hospital Acquired Infections (HAI)
Bi-annual budget proposals to maximize resources
Policies to increase clinic efficiencies and remove any role confusion related to vaccine administration in a well-clinic where family nurse practitioners (FNPs) and clinic RNs give immunizations to patients
Policies for renewals or updates related to lab specimens
Potential changes to the BSN clinical site orientation related to content that prepares student nurses for their first clinical placement
Using a PowerPoint presentation with speaker notes, present the process (i.e., tell the story) for creating an interprofessional team based on the chosen topic. This storyboard presentation will be presented to potential team members so that they understand why the team is being created and to what purpose the team has.
The outcome is to have a plan to formulate a team to address the situation chosen.
Develop effective teams. The first task is to identify appropriate members to be part of the team and their role on the team.
Discuss the roles necessary to compile the team.
Explain the purpose for including the various roles.
Discuss at least one of the benefits of incorporating DEI (diversity, equity, inclusion) principles in managing the team.
Explain the rationale for your choices using supporting evidence.
Understand how teams work. An efficient team starts functioning with a team charter.
Identify key components to include in the charter and explain your rationales, using evidence to support your ideas.
Discuss strategies the team leader can use to maximize effective team functioning.
Use the team inputs and outputs identified in the team charter to support the rationales.
Plan to evaluate team outcomes. All proposed projects, such as one of these team projects, should have a plan to evaluate team success.
Explain the measures you will propose to use to evaluate the team, support your rationale.
