[SOLVED] Assessment 2 Instructions: Interview and Interdisciplinary Issue Identification

Assessment 2 Instructions: Interview and Interdisciplinary Issue Identification
For this assessment, you will create a 2-4 page report on an interview you have conducted with a health care
professional. You will identify an issue from the interview that could be improved with an interdisciplinary approach,
and review best practices and evidence to address the issue.
As a baccalaureate-prepared nurse, your participation and leadership in interdisciplinary teams will be vital to the
health outcomes for your patients and organization. One way to approach designing an improvement project is to
use the Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) cycle. The Institute for Healthcare Improvement describes it thus:
The Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) cycle is shorthand for testing a change in the real work setting—by planning
it, trying it, observing the results, and acting on what is learned. This is the scientific method adapted for
action-oriented learning…Essentially, the PDSA cycle helps you test out change ideas on a smaller scale
before evaluating the results and making adjustments before potentially launching into a somewhat larger
scale project (n.d.).
You might also recognize that the PDSA cycle resembles the nursing process. The benefit of gaining experience with
this model of project design is that it provides nurses with an opportunity to ideate and lead improvements. For this
assessment, you will not be implementing all of the PDSA cycle. Instead, you are being asked to interview a health
care professional of your choice to determine what kind of interdisciplinary problem he or she is experiencing or has
experienced in the workplace. This interview, in Assessment 2, will inform the research that you will conduct to
propose a plan for interdisciplinary collaboration in Assessment 3.
It would be an excellent choice to complete the PDSA Cycle activity prior to developing the report. The activity
consists of four questions that create the opportunity to check your understanding of best practices related to each
stage of the PDSA cycle. The information gained from completing this formative will promote your success with the
Interview and Interdisciplinary Issue Identification report. This will take just a few minutes of your time and is not
graded.

Professional Context
This assessment will introduce the Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) Model to create change in an organization. By
interviewing a colleague of your choice, you will begin gathering information about an interprofessional
collaboration problem that your colleague is experiencing or has experienced. You will identify a change theory and
leadership strategies to help solve this problem.
Scenario
This assessment is the first of three related assessments in which you will gather interview information (Assessment
2); design a proposal for interdisciplinary problem-solving, (Assessment 3); and report on how an interdisciplinary
improvement plan could be implemented in a place of practice (Assessment 4). At the end of the course, your
interviewee will have a proposal plan based on the PDSA cycle that he or she could present to stakeholders to
address an interdisciplinary problem in the workplace.
For this assessment, you will need to interview a health care professional such as a fellow learner, nursing colleague,
administrator, business partner, or another appropriate person who could provide you with sufficient information
regarding an organizational problem that he or she is experiencing or has experienced, or an area where they are
seeking improvements. Consult the
Interview Guide [DOCX] for an outline of how to prepare and the types of
information you will need to complete this project successfully.
Remember: this is just the first in a series of three assessments.
Instructions: Interview and Interdisciplinary Issue Identification
For this assessment, you will report on the information that you collected in your interview, analyzing the interview
data and identifying a past or current issue that would benefit from an interdisciplinary approach. This could be an
issue that has not been addressed by an interdisciplinary approach or one that could benefit from improvements
related to the interdisciplinary approach currently being used. You will discuss the interview strategy that you used
to collect information. Your interview strategy should be supported by citations from the literature. Additionally, you
will start laying the foundation for your Interdisciplinary Plan Proposal (Assessment 3) by researching potential
change theories, leadership strategies, and collaboration approaches that could be relevant to issue you have
identified. Please be certain to review the scoring guide to confirm specific required elements of this assessment.
Note that there are differences between basic, proficient and distinguished scores.
When submitting your plan, use the
Interview and Issue Identification Template [DOCX], which will help you to stay
organized and concise. As you complete the template, make sure you use APA format for in-text citations for the
evidence and best practices that are informing your plan, as well as for the reference list at the end.

Additionally, be sure to address the following, which corresponds to the grading criteria in the scoring guide. Please
study the scoring guide carefully so you understand what is needed for a distinguished score.
Summarize an interview focused on past or current issues at a health care organization.
Identify an issue from an interview for which an evidence-based interdisciplinary approach would be
appropriate.
Describe potential change theories and leadership strategies that could inform an interdisciplinary solution to
an organizational issue.
Describe collaboration approaches from the literature that could facilitate establishing or improving an
interdisciplinary team to address an organizational issue.
Communicate with writing that is clear, logically organized, and professional, with correct grammar and
spelling, and using current APA style.
Additional Requirements
Length of submission: Use the provided template. Most submissions will be 2 to 4 pages in length. Be sure
to include a reference page at the end of the plan.
Number of references: Cite a minimum of 3 sources of scholarly or professional evidence that support your
central ideas. Resources should be no more than 5 years old.
APA formatting: Make sure that in-text citations and reference list follow current APA style.
Portfolio Prompt: Remember to save the final assessment to your ePortfolio so that you may refer to it as you
complete the final Capstone course.
