Practicum Project focus, Including the Goal and Objectives

The proposed Practicum Project will involve creating an evaluation tool for the new Responder 5 nurse call system in the emergency department (ED) at my practicum site. The ED has implemented a new system to deal with overcrowding, throughput, and bed availability.

The goal of the practicum project is to create and evaluation tool (survey tool) that will be used to evaluate the impact of the new Responder 5 nurse call system technology implementation in the emergency department on the environmental services response times, staffs’ perception of safety using the new panic button features, the efficiency of the car process, and efficiency of the radiology process compared to the previous nurse call system. The new Responder 5 nurse call system has a wide range of functionalities and designated buttons that are meant to notify specific individuals to respond to their duties and improve workflow. Consequently, the following objectives have been developed to help achieve the objective:

  1. Within three weeks of my practicum session, I will create an evaluation survey tool that will be used to determine the staffs’ perception of the safety realized by using the new panic button feature of the new nurse call system.
  2. By the end of March 2017, modify the survey tool to accommodate the evaluation of the efficiency of the radiology process and environmental services response time enhanced by the implementation of the new nurse call system.
  3. By the end of April 2017, utilize the evaluation skills learned in class to explain the process of creating the evaluation tool and the evaluation process.

Methodology and Explanation of how to Meet each Objective Using this Methodology.

The project focusses on developing a survey tool which is centered towards the evaluation of the impact of the Responder 5 new nurse call technology implementation in the emergency department on the environmental services response times, staffs’ perception of safety using the new panic button features, the efficiency of the care process, and efficiency of the radiology process compared to the previous nurse call system. The survey tool will contain questions that allow respondents to specify how often they utilize the panic buttons, to detail how often they use it each day, to describe the efficiency in conveying message through care and radiology processes, and provide detailed list of problems or issues encountered while using the new Responder 5 system. Also, the survey tool will include a section to allow nurses rank 20 different characteristics of the Responder 5 nurse call system on a 1 to 5 scale.

The creation of the evaluation tool is based on the technology acceptance model (TAM) which is a theory that models how information technology users establish trust on a new technology. The theory suggests that when users of introduced to new technology, two factors impact their decisions on when and how to use. These factors include: the perceived usefulness of the new system; and the perceived ease-of-use of the newly introduced system (Pellegrino, 2010). Within three weeks of my practicum session, I will create an evaluation survey tool that will be used to determine the staffs’ perception of the safety realized by using the new panic button feature of the new nurse call system.

Evaluation Plan, noting when Formative and/or Summative Evaluation Will Occur.

The practicum projects will involve creating an evaluation tool that will be sued to evaluate the impact of the Responder 5 new nurse call technology implementation in the ED on the environmental services response times, staffs’ perception of safety using the new panic button features, the efficiency of the care process, and efficiency of the radiology process compared to the previous nurse call system. The evaluation plan for the survey tool consist of four stages. The first step consist of developing goal and objectives of the evaluation plan. Once the objectives are identified, a detailed description of the methodology is provided to facilitate creating of an evaluation tool that meets the project objectives. The third step incorporates summative evaluation to help develop survey questions that measure success of an already implemented system (Duers & Brown, 2009). Summative evaluation allows assessment of system after it has been fully implemented to help in making informed decision about the system (Gantt, 2013). Hence, it forms the prime approach for this project. At the end of the evaluation process, a report will be prepared detailing the evaluation tool and the sections incorporated to help in evaluating the newly implemented system.
