In this section I will now explore what further actions and investigations can be carried out in relation to my leadership initiative and how these relate to improvements and possibly innovation. Moreover, I will then examine how to communicate the outcomes of my leadership initiative with relevant stakeholders.
Firstly, I will try and implement the care plan as a pilot on my ward as soon as possible (taking into consideration that its implementation is restricted in that it can only be applied when caring for end of life patients).
Innovation …show more content…
I will make use of my professional and personal strengths, developed through the course of this programme, to engage hearts and minds on this project, by involving and empowering key players to achieve excellent end of life care.
Effective leadership by individuals is an interaction of the individual within their context, and therefore aspects of the role of the leader, and their social networking and influencing skills, need to be taken into account (Mountford and Webb, 2009).
Therefore, it is my objective to empower staff by demonstrating how distributed or dispersed leadership is essential for an effective healthcare system. A multi-headed leadership that engages professionals and patients, including frontline leaders, service leaders and institutional leaders, will make them feel respected, listened to and empowered to influence and improve care (Mountford and Webb, 2009), (Kings Fund, …show more content…
Its objective is to disclose “What works for whom, in what circumstances, and how?” (Pawson and Tilley, 2004). However, although it would be very valuable in analyzing the project described, its inherent complexity represents an unfortunate obstacle to its use.
Therefore, in these circumstances it is more appropriate to use the “fourth generation evaluation” model due to its more structured approach. I will use this method to evaluate the project from its very beginning; similar to what was mentioned above in part three.
I believe the “fourth generation evaluation” model to be a complete and effective approach with the advantage of denying the existence of a single objective reality. This evaluation represents meaningful constructions that participants form to understand of the situations in which they find themselves (Guba and Lincoln, 1989).
Consequently, the outcomes are constructions created through a collaborating process that includes the evaluator as well as the many stakeholders (Koch,
