The goal of thisassessment is to clearly lay out the improvement objective for your plannedinterdisciplinary intervention on preventing central-line associatedbloodstream infections (CLABSI).

Write regarding preventingCLABSI using chlorhexidine baths, sterile technique during insertion and duringdressing changes, and one more way of preventing CLABSI

       What leadershipstrategies and change theory can be used to enhance interprofessionalcollaboration with this problem? Look for specific, real-world ways in whichthose strategies and best practices could be applied to encourage buy-in forthe plan or facilitate the implementation of the plan for the best possibleoutcome.

  • Describe an objective and predictions for an evidence-based interdisciplinary plan to achieve a specific goal related to improving patient or organizational outcomes.
  • Explain a change theory and a leadership strategy, supported by relevant evidence, that is most likely to help an interdisciplinary team succeed in collaborating and implementing, or creating buy-in for, the project plan.
  • Explain the collaboration needed by an interdisciplinary team to improve the likelihood of achieving the plans objective. Include best practices of interdisciplinary collaboration from the literature.
  • Explain organizational resources, including a financial budget, needed for the plan to succeed and the impacts on those resources if the improvements described in the plan are not made.








Please structure the paper like this:

Interdisciplinary Plan Proposal

            Write a brief introduction (2 to 3 sentences) to yourproposal that outlines the issue you are attempting to solve, the part of theorganization in which the plan would be carried out, and the desired outcome.This will set the stage for the sections below.


Describe what your planwill do and what you hope it will accomplish in one or two succinct sentences.Also, comment on how the objective, if achieved, will improve organizational orpatient outcomes. For example:

Test a double-loop feedback model forevaluating new product risk with a small group of project managers with the goalof reducing the number of new products that fail to launch. This objective isaligned to the broader organizational goal of becoming more efficient taking productsto market and, if successful, should improve outcomes by reducing waste.

Questions and Predictions

For this section askyourself 3 to 5 questions about your objective and your overall plan. Make aprediction for each question by answering the question you posed. This helpsyou to define the important aspects of your plan as well as limit the scope andcheck its ability to be implemented.


1.      How much time will using a double-loopfeedback model add to a project managers workload?

a.       Atfirst, it will likely increase their workloads by 5 to 10 percent. However, asthe process is refined and project managers become more familiar and efficient,that percentage will decrease.

Change Theories and Leadership Strategies

For this section, you maywish to draw upon the research you did regarding change theories and leadershipfor the Interview and Interdisciplinary Issue Identification assessment. Thefocus of this section is how those best practices will create buy-in for theproject from an interdisciplinary team, improve their collaboration, and/orfoster the teams ability to implement the plan. Be sure that you are includingat least one change theory and at least one leadership strategy in yourexplanation. Always remember to cite your sources; direct quotes requirequotation marks and a page or paragraph number to be included in the citation.

Anotherway to approach your explanations in this section is to think through thefollowing:

        What is the theory or strategy?

        How will it likely help an interdisciplinaryteam to collaborate, implement, and/or buy in to the project plan?

Team Collaboration Strategy

Inthis section, begin by further defining the responsibilities and actions thatrepresent the implementation of the plan. One strategy to defining this is totake a who, what, where, and when approach for each team member.

        roughly outline the roles andresponsibilities of team members

        give a more in-depth explanation of thecollaboration approaches and look at how they will help the theoreticalinterdisciplinary team in your plan proposal.

Another way to approachyour explanations in this section is to think through the following:

        What is the collaboration approach?

        What types of collaboration and teamworkwill best help the interdisciplinary team be successful?

        How is the collaboration approach relevantto the teams needs and will it help drive success?

o  Make sure to frame this explanation interms of the subject of the plan proposal; that is, your intervieweesorganization.

Required Organizational Resources

For this section, youwill be making rough estimates of the resources needed for your plan proposalto be successful. This section does not have to be exact but the estimatesshould be realistic for the chosen organization.

Itemsyou should include or address in this section:

        What are the staffing needs for your planproposal?

        What equipment or supplies are needed foryour plan proposal?

o  Does the organization already have these?

  Ifso, what is the cost associated with using these resources?

  Ifnot, what is the cost of acquiring these resources?

        What access (to patients, departments, andso forth) is needed?

o  Are there any costs associated with these?

        What is the overall financial budget requestfor the plan proposal?

o  Staff time, resource use, resourceacquisition, and access charged?

  Rememberto include a specific dollar amount in your request.

  explainany impacts on organizational resources that could happen if your plan is notundertaken and successful
