Methods The method to evaluate the effectiveness of the change strategy would be in the form of surveys. A survey will be distributed prior to any change implemented to patients, family members, bedside nurses and any members of staff who have direct access to patients or family members, such as social work and case management. This survey would gauge the current state of how educational materials is being distributed, obtained or solicited. This initial survey will demonstrate the pre-change state of affairs. After implementation, another survey will be distributed to gauge the post-change state of affairs. This post-change survey will demonstrate the ease and effectiveness of obtaining educational materials. A more thorough analysis can be performed by looking at the readmission rates of certain patient populations several months after the change has been fully implemented. Barring any other changes within the hospital during that time, the supplementation of educational media can be gleaned as a directly affecting hospital admission. D.
