Evaluation Plan Design and Discussion
Once an intervention is planned and implemented it is important to evaluate the degree to which the
outcomes of the project were achieved. By evaluating the desired outcomes of an intervention, it is
possible to make more informed decisions about opportunities for continuous improvement. It is also
possible to identify strategies and approaches that could be useful in improving one’s personal
practice in other contexts or care areas.
Your evaluation plan design and discussion will be the forth section of your final project submission.
The goal for this is to finalize the outcomes that your plan is seeking to achieve and to create a plan
to evaluate the degree to which those outcomes were achieved after your intervention plan has been
implemented. This will allow you and your care setting to determine the degree to which the plan
was successful in addressing the identified need of your target population and setting. You will also
discuss ways in which your role allows you to lead change and drive quality improvement, and to
potentially improve the project in the future. In addition, you will reflect on how the project will leave
you better prepared for success in other aspects of your current and future career. Provide enough
detail so that the faculty member assessing your implementation plan design and discussion will be
able to provide substantive feedback that you will be able to incorporate into the final draft of your
project. At minimum, be sure to address the bullet points below, as they correspond to the grading
criteria. You may also want to read the scoring guide and the Guiding Questions: Evaluation Plan
Design and Discussion document (both linked in the Resources) to better understand how each
criterion will be assessed. In addition to the bullet points below, provide a brief introduction that
refreshes the reader’s memory about your problem statement, your planned intervention, and how
you intended to implement your intervention (this should only be a single paragraph).
Part 1: Evaluation of Plan
* Define the outcomes that are the goal of an intervention plan.
* Create an evaluation plan to determine the impact of an intervention for a health promotion, quality
improvement, prevention, education, or management need.
Part 2: Discussion
* Analyze the nurse’s role in leading change and driving improvements in the quality and experience
* Explain how the intervention plan affects nursing, and interprofessional collaboration, and how the
health care field gains from the plan.
Future Steps ?
* Explain how the current project could be improved upon to create a bigger impact in the target
population as well as to take advantage of emerging technology and care models to improve
outcomes and safety.
Reflection on Leading Change and Improvement
* Reflect on how the project has impacted your ability to lead change in personal practice and future
* Reflect on the ways in which the completed intervention, implementation, and evaluation plans can
be transferred into your personal practice to drive quality improvement in other contexts Address Generally Throughout
* Integrate resources from diverse sources that illustrate support for all aspects of an evaluation plan
for an intervention, as well as for professional discussion about the plan.
* Communicate evaluation plan and discussion of the project in a professional way that helps the
audience to understand how the outcomes will be evaluated, as well as what was learned through the
* Length of submission: 4 pages, double spaced.
* Number of resources: Minimum 3–6 resources. (You may use resources previously cited in your
literature review to contribute to this number. Your final project will require 12–18 unique resources
across all sections.)
* Written communication: Written communication is free of errors that detract from the overall
* APA formatting: Resources and citations are formatted according to current APA style. Header
formatting follows current APA levels.
* Font and font size: Times New Roman, 12 point.
