al., 2016). This process will be repeated with the values for last 6 weeks to obtain the post-intervention falls rate. As the most commonly used form of average, the mean provides a characteristic representation of a group of figures (Sharma, Brar & Kaur, 2016). To calculate the mean rates forthe two groups, the rates for the three units will we summed up and divided by the number of units (that is 3). Again this calculation will be done separately for the two periods. The mean rates for the two study periods will be analyzed using t-test to determine whether the means of the study group and the control group are statistically different from each other. According to
Drummond & Reyes (2017), the t-test analysis is suitable when one wants to evaluate the means of two groups. For all analyses, p<0.05 will be considered statistically significant.Evaluation PlanAn evaluation plan is required to provide information to improve a project and assess the project’s success level. According to Serrador & Turner (2015), project effectiveness, team satisfaction, business success, impact on the consumer, and preparedness for the future are five methods of determining project success. Project efficiency involves meeting schedule and budgetgoals. In the current study, team satisfaction will be determined through skill development and team growth among members in the research team. The study should also ensure customer satisfaction through improved quality of care, hence attracting more clients to expand the market share. Finally, the project should develop new technology and explore new markets in preparation for the future (Serrador & Turner, 2015).Information about the change implementation can be passed on in various ways. This exercise will tap into the organization’s communication channels for success. It would be important to identify the target audience who are the various stakeholders (Andreu, Casado-Díaz & Mattila, 2015). In the current study, the stakeholders who are affected are stroke patients and their families, healthcare providers, the employers, and the community. Some formal methods to disseminate the information about the new intervention are medical journals, medical society newsletters, national and international conferences, emails, local meetings, flyers, and community posters. It is important to identify the communication channels that best suits particular stakeholders. It is crucial to keep the research vibrant by conducting constant evaluation that will uphold the intervention. By applying interpersonal skills of management, the project message
would be kept consistent and be continuously strengthened. Frequent and constant collaboration and communication with stakeholders will offer a strong sustenance for the project Charles, (Schmidheiny & Watts, 2017). Additionally, ongoing research and evaluation will be required in the study of hourly rounding and its effect on post-stroke fall prevention. For instance, different hourly rounding intervals will need to be assessed with larger sample populations to establish if
