Step 1 Research quality improvement initiatives in your workplace. Use your observations to research information about a quality improvement initiative in your workplace or in a nursing setting you have experienced. Gather information about the initiative from individuals that actually collect data for the initiative. If necessary, discuss which initiatives are most important on your unit with your nurse manager. Step 2 Research quality improvement standards. Using the Internet, review websites like the Joint Commission or the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and gather information on the standard for the initiative. Step 3 Create a 14- to 16-slide presentation. Create your presentation by addressing the following points and make sure you properly cite any resources used. Include a slide for each of the following: title page, introduction, conclusion, references. In addition to these four slides, each of the following bullet points should have its own slide: Describe the quality improvement initiative and why it is important. What evidence was used to determine that quality improvement was needed? Explain what goal the initiative is trying to achieve. What national standards are being met by addressing the initiative? Which quality indicators will be used to measure the improvement in the initiative? Describe the quality indicators and how they support the initiative. Explain who collects the data and how they compare it to other data. Determine the agencies they report their information to. Determine nursing's involvement in helping with the initiative. Explain some of challenges your workplace faces in meeting its goals. Make recommendations on how nursing can alleviate some of those challenges. Include a reference list on the last slide of your presentation. The reference list is not included in your slide total. Step 4 Add presenter's notes. Include talking points and details in the notes area for each slide. These notes should document what you would say to an audience about each slide if you were to present in person.
