theory of change is based on the concept of an external agent creating change through careful planning. As per this change theory, the nursing care team becomes the external agent affecting change through designing and implementing EBP for patients. It offers much more of a framework for change agents and includes assessment of motivation. Lippitt's assessment stage incorporates Lewin's unfreezing stage, but it also offers much more of a framework for change
agents and includes assessment of motivation (Mitchell, 2013). Lewin's refreezing stage is consistent with Lippitt's implementation and evaluation stages. The two change theories described above are similar problem-solving approaches to implementing planned change. However, they are also slightly different and it is up to us to select the most appropriate model based on the specific circumstances of the EBP work environment.My mentor like to widely use Lewin’s three steps model because its motivating concepts that helps to understand why the other change models are effective in overwhelming struggle to change as well as this model creating an environment that is conducive to permanent change.ReferencesBarrow, J., & Toney-Butler, T.
