model contains two components of health-related behavior: 1) desire to avoid illness, and 2) belief that a specific health action will prevent illness (LaMorte, 2016). This model suggests that individual beliefs are that illness and/or disease is a personal threat. When coupled with the belief of recommended health behaviors, this will determine the likelihood the individual behavior will be adopted (LaMorte, 2016). Section F: Implementation Plan Setting and Time Frame This EBP project was performed at BEMC, in Burleson, Texas. The project involved the voluntary participation of all staff members at BEMC. The time frame given for this project is 90-days from February 1, 2019 through April 30, 2019. A detailed timeline in included in Appendix E. Resources

22 Running Head: EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICE PROPOSAL The biggest resource for this project was time. Time was needed to create and evaluate pre- and post-implementation surveys, hand washing knowledge test, provide education, and display visual cues. Time was also spent at meetings with department leaders, the hospital administrator. Infection control provided de-identified hand hygiene data. A full resource list can be found in Appendix J. There were few materials needs for the project. The main materials were paper and colored ink for handouts and data displays. A full budget can be found in Appendix F. Methods and Instruments to Monitor Implementation For this project, methods and instruments used to monitor implementation included a pre- and post-implementation survey, direct observation of hand hygiene practices, facility compliance data, hand hygiene product usage, and informal interviewing. Project objectives were measured by comparing data before and after project implementation. 1. Pre- and Post-Implementation Surveys . This student administered pre- and post- implementation surveys and a hand hygiene knowledge test to staff to determine knowledge-base of hand hygiene and HAI transmission before and after implementation of the multi-modal intervention. The pre- survey and test were given one week prior to the start of the project (See Appendix G). The post- survey was given during the last week of the project (See Appendix L). Surveys were sent to all staff via email using SurveyMonkey software. The survey took approximately five minutes to complete. A total of 64 of the 82

23 Running Head: EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICE PROPOSAL employees completed the pre- survey and knowledge test. Fifty-five (55) completed the post- survey. 2. Direct Observation. This is considered by many, the “Gold Standard” for collecting hand hygiene compliance data (Kingston et al., 2016). Data was gathered through direct observation for two moments of hand hygiene: a) Washing in prior to entering a patient room; b) Washing out prior to exiting the patient room.
