hospital educator, member from marketing and advertising, informatics nurse, and patient and family members. The goal of the multidisciplinary team will be to improve PF centered care within the health care facility. Once the change has been implemented, the team will use different methods to determine if the change was positive and improved PF centered care or if the change was negative and the multidisciplinary team will need to assess what elements did not work and work to change those elements so that the proposed change is accepted by all within the facility. System or Change Theory The Lippitt change model is comprised of seven steps to establish change and will used by this multidisciplinary team. This model uses communication skills, rapport building, and problem-solving strategies to underlie their different phases (Sullivan, 2018). The first step is to “diagnose the problem”, which has been done with aid from the PFCC tool (Sullivan, 2018, p. 62). The next step is to “assess motivation” (Sullivan, 2018, p.62). For this step, staff and PF surveys can be used to assess motivation for change or if there will be a lot of resistance. The third step is to “assess change agent’s motivations and resources” (Sullivan, 2018, p. 62). During this step, the multidisciplinary team themselves will assess their power and commitment to establish the desired change. All members of the team must be fully committed if the plan of change is to be implemented appropriately. Staff members and PF must be aware that this change is meant for the better and they are committed to making this change permanent. The fourth step
Organizational Leadership and Interprofessional Team Development 8 is to” select progressive change objects” (Sullivan, 2018, p. 62). During this step is when the team will develop a plan of how to implement the change as well as different strategies can be used. Step five of is to “choose change agent role” (Sullivan, 2018, p. 62). For this step the team will initiate the change throughout the health care system. The team members themselves act as agents of change and are available to assist and answer questions that may arise during the implementation process. The sixth step in the model is “maintain change” (Sullivan, 2018, p.62). For this step the team will work with bedside staff while the new process is being implemented and help to cement the new process in the workflow of the bedside staff. This is also the step when the process will be reevaluated if necessary and changes made to the process. The final step is to “terminate helping relationships” (Sullivan, 2018, p. 62). At this step, the new process should be cemented into the workflow of bedside staff and the multidisciplinary staff does not need to be available for assistance. The multidisciplinary team can be terminated at this time as they are no longer needed.
