Stakeholders help ensure the success of a change project. They can be an individual or group that is interested in or affected by the change. When stakeholders are involved in the change, they raise awareness in the community, and provide valuable insight (ORourke, Higuchi, and Hogg, 2016). Working with stakeholders from the beginning of the project allows for their input and expertise on what the goals should be. When stakeholders are engaged, change is easier, and the plan is often better developed (Ginex, 2018).
The proposed change project will require several stakeholders. Internal stakeholders for postpartum hemorrhage bundle will include: administration, department manager, doctors, nurses, midwives, lab, surgery, house supervisor, and anesthesia. The external stakeholders will include administration at the corporate level of SCL-Health, the quality department, and possibly the legal team. For us to successfully overhaul how we provide care to postpartum patients, we will need the support from all the stakeholders. OR and anesthesia are important stakeholders, because they can identify possible problems with staffing, and OR space during hemorrhage management. Providers, both MD and midwives, are important because they will need to agree on the best first-line medications and cutoffs for implementing the protocol. They must be prepared to be called back to the bedside more often if there is a concern about blood loss and change their practice from estimated blood loss, to quantified blood loss.
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
