NHS FPX 6004 Assessment 3 Training Session for Policy Implementation

Training Session for Policy Implementation

Hello, I am XYZ, and I would like to present the significant impact of policy implementation training sessions in raising the underperformance benchmarks of Mercy Medical Center (MMC). These training sessions are instrumental in enhancing outcomes and elevating the quality and standard of care MMC provides.

Introduction

Establishing and enforcing rules, regulations, and processes in a healthcare institution is critical to ensuring the delivery of effective healthcare services (Wiljer & Hakim, 2019). The purpose of this presentation is to underline the importance of evidence-based methodologies in preparing the workforce for policy implementation and practice guidelines. These measures are critical in improving the quality of care, particularly for diabetic patients. The presentation will highlight the importance of stakeholders in successfully implementing policies and guidelines. Engaging and interacting with stakeholders such as patients, their families, healthcare specialists, and relevant organizations is critical for gaining support and ensuring that adopted policies meet their needs and preferences. Effective strategies for engaging stakeholders will also be investigated, emphasizing clear communication, active participation, and establishing a collaborative environment. Working closely with stakeholders allows healthcare organizations to gain valuable insights and views, resulting in policies and guidelines that are more patient-centric and successful in tackling diabetes management concerns (Powers et al., 2020).

 

Diabetic Management Policy and Practice Guidelines

The successful implementation of any strategy is contingent upon the presence of robust interpersonal relationships and efficient communication. The process involves establishing favourable relationships between leaders and employees by employing proficient management techniques and communication strategies. Foong et al. (2020) established a correlation between the ability of workers to conduct patient training programmes and the level of perceived appreciation and support they receive. MMC intends to devise a plan to enhance diabetes care, in line with the suggestions put forth by Davidson et al. (2021) and the American Association of Clinical Endocrinology. The aforementioned regulation stipulates that individuals are required to undergo annual foot examinations, bi-annual HgbA1c testing, and intermittent diabetes screenings. It is recommended that individuals receive education on self-management of diabetes and utilise glucose monitoring devices. Moreover, it is highly recommended to provide adequate training to nursing staff.. Individual preferences for technical support must be considered since adapting the approach to their needs can considerably improve engagement and outcomes. Doing so can ensure that patients receive thorough and tailored treatment while establishing a collaborative and supportive environment within the organization (Davidson et al., 2021).

Medical providers and nurses are expected to follow the practice recommendations set in the preceding evaluation, which include a variety of critical components. They include patient education, consistent monitoring, effective care coordination, individualised treatment plans, continual quality improvements, and facilitating access to appropriate resources. The diagnosis of type 2 diabetes and prediabetes via screening techniques for people between the ages of 35 and 70 years is one particular diabetes care strategy that nurses must prioritise, according to McGrath et al. (2021). It is also critical to emphasize self-management skills. It includes supporting a healthy diet, regular physical activity, and recognizing and managing risk factors such as obesity. By highlighting these factors, healthcare providers can encourage patients to actively participate in diabetes management, resulting in better outcomes and overall well-being (McGrath et al., 2021).

 

Need for Policy and Practice Guidelines

It is critical to prioritize the implementation of HgbA1c and foot screening tests, which are currently lacking in MMC for enhancing the standard of care for diabetes patients. A particularly concerning issue is many individuals with prediabetes, resulting in severe health complications (Casadei et al., 2021). Diabetes’ financial consequences must also be considered. In the United States, the projected cost of a diabetes diagnosis in 2018 was $327 billion (American Diabetes Association, 2018). This alarming result emphasizes the critical need to improve healthcare measures through policy and practice standards implementation. As a result, the cost burden connected with diabetes medication and self-monitoring measures can be reduced. To effectively address these difficulties, MMC must prioritize establishing and implementing comprehensive policies emphasizing early identification and intervention for diabetes and prediabetes. It can involve widespread education initiatives, tailored screening programs, and enhanced access to healthcare resources. MMC can play an essential in decreasing the economic burden of diabetes while also enhancing the overall health outcomes and well-being of the community it serves by implementing evidence-based recommendations and practices (Correia et al., 2019).

 

Evidence-based Approaches to Dealing with a Specific Role Group

Integrating evidence-based practices is critical in healthcare for improving day-to-day processes. To find the most successful techniques, healthcare professionals should look at various sources, including peer-reviewed papers, clinical trials, and credible websites and journals (Lobban et al., 2021). By accessing these resources, MMC may ensure its practices are evidence-based and consistent with current best practices. In order to empower and educate various stakeholders within MMC, such as healthcare professionals, nurses, support staff, policymakers, and government organisations, comprehensive diabetes treatment and prevention training sessions, seminars, and workshops are indispensable. These educational programs will provide the role group with the skills they need to meet the problems of diabetes care effectively. Effective communication strategies, including verbal, nonverbal, and open communication, are crucial when conveying the current underperformance parameters. By providing a convincing presentation, MMC can engage the role group, get their support, and effectively prepare them to implement diabetes-related policies. This method guarantees that all stakeholders are educated, aligned, and motivated to contribute to implementing policies and developing diabetes care at MMC (McLendon et al., 2019).

Efficacy of Strategies

Fostering a caring culture and maintaining a positive attitude among the role group can substantially impact resolving underperformance parameters within MMC and improving individual health outcomes. Effective team leadership is essential for this, which requires important skills such as coordination, coaching, and facilitation. Team leaders can use these strategies to increase the overall productivity and effectiveness of the healthcare staff. Collaboration within the team is also essential for success. Team members may leverage their unique knowledge and viewpoints by functioning cohesively, improving decision-making processes. This collaborative approach allows for immediate modifications and the formulation of long-term goals, ensuring that diabetes care at MMC continues progressing (Jaly et al., 2020).

Furthermore, cooperation allows employees to assess their particular strengths and weaknesses. This self-evaluation fosters a continuous improvement culture in which team members actively seek to improve their skills and competencies. Cooperation allows for consistent monitoring and evaluation of performance, allowing for rapid interventions and adjustments as needed. MMC can foster professional growth and engagement of its role group by highlighting care, positive attitudes, effective team leadership, and teamwork. It improves overall performance, fosters efficient decision-making, and helps the organization’s continual development of diabetes treatment (Foluke Bosun-Arije et al., 2021).

 

Impact of a New Policy and Practice Guidelines

According to Davidson et al. (2021), incorporating the legislative, regulatory, and procedural recommendations made by the American Association of Clinical Endocrinology can considerably increase the frequency of foot exams and HgbA1c measurements. This proactive screening method is critical for enhancing patient care and reducing diabetes-related complications. By applying these principles, MMC can prioritize early identification and intervention, resulting in better health outcomes for people at risk of diabetes. The standards of practise encompass essential components such as patient instruction, regular evaluation, collaboration of healthcare, individualised therapy regimens, continuous enhancement of quality, and availability of requisite resources. By following these recommendations, healthcare practitioners can ensure that their patients receive complete and individualized care, resulting in better health outcomes and general well-being. The guidelines also emphasize the importance of implementing blood glucose self-monitoring. This technique allows for gathering vital medical data for informed decision-making and staff training to improve their efficiency in diabetes care (Poger et al., 2019).

Diabetes self-management education to patients is of paramount importance in promoting self-care behaviours and mitigating the frequency of costly emergency department visits. The utilisation of MMC has the potential to empower patients to take an active role in their treatment plan by providing them with the essential knowledge to proficiently handle their medical ailment. It leads to better health outcomes and lower healthcare costs. Hospital administration can form task forces or committees, including the chronic illness department, to help implement these policies and practice recommendations. These specialized groups can provide a structure and organize efforts to ensure that the guidelines are successfully integrated into daily practice, promoting a culture of continuous improvement in diabetes care at MMC (Hailu et al., 2019).

 

Policy’s Effect on Daily Tasks and Role Group Duties

The suggested policy and practice standards are critical in maintaining law and regulation compliance and providing clear direction in decision-making processes for nurses and healthcare providers. Nurses will be in charge of frequently monitoring patients with type 2 diabetes, streamlining the screening process, and resolving concerns about the lack of HgbA1c tests and foot examinations (Whitehead et al., 2021). 

According to Faulds et al. (2021), nurses actively participate in administrative responsibilities connected to diabetes treatment, which can considerably benefit patients. Nurses have an advantage in providing patient education regarding the significance of diabetes screening as a preventive measure to mitigate the risk of disease complications. Healthcare practitioners, specialists, and nursing staff conform to established protocols and guidelines to facilitate the efficient care. They are critical in motivating patients to make lifestyle adjustments and actively participate in their condition management. Nurses empower patients to take responsibility for their health by teaching them frequent weight and blood sugar monitoring. In addition, nurses can refer patients to trustworthy online resources to help them develop further self-management skills. Nurses can play a critical role in improving the overall outcomes and well-being of people with diabetes by following these principles (Faulds et al., 2021).

 

Importance of a New Policy and Practice Guidelines

The objective of establishing policies for diabetes management is to prioritise the welfare of individuals with diabetes by mitigating the potential risks of complications.. These guidelines serve as a complete resource, providing valuable diabetes information and an organized framework for medical providers to help patients maintain optimal health. Medical professionals can effectively manage the care of diabetes patients if they follow the policy and recommendations. As a result, the workload on healthcare personnel is reduced, ensuring that resources are used properly, and patients receive the attention they demand. Finally, following these principles leads to better healthcare outcomes and a higher quality of life for people with diabetes (Jain et al., 2020).

The guidelines advise healthcare providers and identify areas requiring additional research and training. Using the toolkit, healthcare workers can improve their knowledge and skills in providing optimal patient care, resulting in better results for people with diabetes. Important screening tests, such as HgbA1c and foot exams, are critical in the early detection and management of diabetes. These tests allow healthcare providers to detect potential problems early on and conduct relevant interventions to avoid complications. Diabetes management and recognizing the risks are essential components that enable patients to take an active role in their care. Healthcare practitioners may help patients make informed decisions by providing the appropriate knowledge and resources, resulting in better results and higher quality of care (Adu et al., 2019).

 

Significance of Role Groups in Implementing New Policy

Healthcare specialists, nurses, board members of the diabetic department, managers, and support staff are among the stakeholders. Each member is essential to the overall diabetes care plan. Diabetes care plans are developed with the help of healthcare professionals and specialists. Nurses play an important role in delivering hands-on care to patients and educating them on how to manage their diabetes and avoid complications. They actively screen diabetes patients, run HgbA1c testing, and conduct foot inspections to guarantee early detection and quick care. The board members and management of the diabetes department are responsible for identifying the best methods and reporting systems for effectively treating diabetes-related complications. Collaboration among all members of this role group is essential for successfully implementing the diabetic care plan. Healthcare professionals, experts, nurses, board members, managers, and administrative workers can all contribute to providing comprehensive and high-quality care to people with diabetes by utilizing their experience and working together (Maneze et al., 2019).

The successful implementation of  regulations and benchmarks necessitates the active engagement of nurses, patients, and their families in both the design and implementation phases. This inclusive approach ensures that the policies reflect the needs and perspectives of those directly impacted by diabetes management. The decision-making process will also include soliciting input from staff and clinicians, as their valuable ideas and experiences contribute to the overall success of policy implementation. This collaborative approach fosters a patient-centered care model and improves the overall effectiveness and success of the policies (Gómez-Velasco et al., 2019).

Training Session Learning Activities

The implementation of a successful training programme requires the presence of effective instructional content, engaging learning exercises, and comprehensive training session materials. Enhancing the process of learning can be achieved through diverse approaches such as the utilisation of video presentations, Smartboard demonstrations, role-playing exercises, educational seminars, and active listening strategies. During training sessions, these approaches stimulate active participation and involvement among role group members (Thomas et al., 2021). Evaluation methods and tests are critical in assessing the performance and knowledge of role group members following the policy and guidelines, as they allow the organization to gauge the effectiveness of the training program and determine if the desired outcomes are being achieved. By systematically assessing the knowledge and skills acquired by the role group, healthcare organizations can identify areas for improvement and make necessary changes (Marciano et al., 2019).

Diabetes-Management Teaching Session

The experts engaged in the plan proposal will attend a two-hour education session on managing diabetes. The session will give useful information about the importance of screening and the use of equipment like glucometers to monitor blood glucose levels. Educational resources will also be available to help people better understand the causes, symptoms, and potential implications of not getting tested for diabetes. Surveys are used to gauge how satisfied participants were with the training session. The findings will reveal that members will be satisfied with the diabetes management education session (Seuring et al., 2019).

Simulation-Based Education Approaches and Instructional Strategies

Education approaches that consists of simulations are beneficial in delivering a realistic learning environment that increases member involvement and motivation. These tactics boost participant contentment while supporting their learning and skill development in conforming to policy and guidelines. Incorporating simulation-based teaching will allow role group members to debate and explore the symptoms and complications of diabetes, allowing for a more in-depth understanding of the condition. This information helps provide patients with integrated care and comprehensive and effective management (O’Shea et al., 2019).

Learning through collaboration strategies, assessment methodologies, and hands-on learning activities are a few of the teaching strategies used in the training sessions. These tactics will actively engage participants by fostering cooperation and engagement, allowing them to judge their development, and giving practical experiences to help them improve their skills and knowledge. The training sessions will help to address the underperformance metrics and apply the policy and practice standards using these instructional tactics. This strategy will allow role group members to follow the standards efficiently and fosters continual progress and professional growth (Saxby et al., 2019).

Conclusion

The presentation highlighted the importance of stakeholders in successfully implementing policies and guidelines. Engaging and interacting with stakeholders such as patients, their families, healthcare specialists, and relevant organizations is critical for gaining support and ensuring that adopted policies meet their needs and preferences. Effective strategies for engaging stakeholders were investigated, emphasizing clear communication, active participation, and establishing a collaborative environment. Working closely with stakeholders allowed healthcare organizations to gain valuable insights and views, resulting in policies and guidelines that are more patient-centric and successful in tackling diabetes management concerns.
