Discussion: Spreading Innovation
An organization may be generally amenable to innovations but not ready or willing to assimilate a particular [Evidence-Based Practice] EBP If there is tension around specific work or clinical issues and staff perceive that the situation is intolerable a potential EBP is likely to be assimilated if it can successfully address the issues and thereby reduce the tension.
Titler 2010
Adoption of evidence-based innovations in nursing practice is a critical facet of promoting quality and safety. As a nurse leader-manager you play a pivotal role in evaluating these innovations and promoting those that will positively impact outcomes.
To prepare:
Review the information on diffusion of innovation presented in the Learning Resources.
Visit the Agency for Healthcare Research and Qualities Innovation Exchange website (listed in the Learning Resources). Click on Innovations & Quality Tools or Browse by Subject then read through a selection of descriptions of innovations.
Evaluate how each of these innovations addresses a problem and determine if you could integrate the innovation (or a similar one) into your organization or one with which you are familiar.
Select one of the innovations on which to focus for this Discussion. Think about how you might introduce this innovation in your selected organization and strategies that you might use to facilitate communication and engagement needed to sustain the innovation.
Post a detailed review of one innovation that you found of particular interest on the AHRQ Innovation Exchange. Explain the problem being addressed the innovation and the outcomes and how you might introduce a similar innovation in your organization or one with which you are familiar. Outline strategies you would employ to sustain the innovation.
Read a selection of your colleagues responses.
Respond to at least two of your colleagues on two different days using one or more of the following approaches:
Ask a probing question substantiated with additional background information or research.
Share an insight from having read your colleagues postings synthesizing the information to provide new perspectives.
