CHANGE MODEL1Evidence-based Practice Proposal Section E: Change ModelGrand Canyon UniversityOctober 8, 2014Change Model – Stetler Model Research Utilization
CHANGE MODEL2It is beneficial to use a change model when attempting to implement a change within a facility, it lessens stressors, fears and anxiety among nurses involved. When implementing change it should be guided by conceptual models or frameworks. In order to reduce turnover rates and improve nursing satisfaction, research models should be utilized with EBP implementation. The use of a conceptual model can also assist the clinician in preventing complications with implementing EBP, such as research imprecisely (Melynk & Fineout-Overholt, 2010). The Stetler Model of Research Utilization assists with individual health care professionals to incorporate evidence into daily practice in order to implement and plan EBP. The Stetler Model is consists of five phases: preparation, validation, comparative evaluation/decision making, translation/application, and evaluation; each phase plays on a key role involved in the utilization of research feedings. PreparationThe preparation stage starts with creating a clinical question, which is most often done in a format of PICOT: Population, Intervention, Comparison, Outcome, and Time (Melynk & Fineout-Overholt, 2010). For this EBP proposal the population is premature/critically ill neonates. The intervention is implementation of noise mitigation related to the unit layout.
