Create an 8- to 10-page Practicum Project Proposal. Your proposal should incorporate the work you have completed in the previous four weeks. It should provide a thorough explanation of the 5 W’s (who, what, when, where, and why) and H (how) in regards to your project:
Why is there a need for the project
What is the project and what do you intend to accomplish with it
Who will be participants in it and who will be impacted by it (stakeholders)
Where will the project take place- MOBILE CLINIC IN A SPECIFIC COMMUNITY THAT ARE AT RISK FOR SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASES
When will it take place-
How will you implement the project and how will the intervention address the need
The aim of the proposal is to secure the buy-in of your project. The proposal should sell itself. The more comprehensive a plan you present in the proposal the greater the odds of buy-in. You will want to use this at your kick-off meeting to gain consensus among all stakeholders and to set the expectations and common objectives for your project.
Your final practicum proposal should contain the following elements:
Table of contents
Align to organization’s vision and mission statement
Background of project’s impetus
Gap analysis/needs assessment
Project charter, scope, and objectives
Define the processes and procedures involved
Work units, tasks/activities
Define project deliverables
Define the metrics that will determine success. How will you know that change is an improvement?
Timeline and schedule- BETWEEN FEB AND MAY
Budget- There is no exact budget, but i have attached what we expect to spend but yo an add any additional information
Identify all resources needed (tangible and intangible)
Risk management plan
Note: The expected length of the final practicum proposal document is 8 to 10 pages, not including the title and reference pages or appendices. You may incorporate some of the tools you completed in order to strengthen your proposal. All remaining work that you completed for your project should be included as appendices to the proposal.
*****The project charter and all the other attached documents helps to give an overview of what the project entails
Provide in-text citations and references for all sources cited.
Format your paper, including the reference page, according to APA guidelines.
Note: This assignment must be submitted for Grammar Assistance and to Plagiarism Checker. Students are expected to integrate this feedback into the assignment before submission.
Gap Analysis Tool
What is the purpose of this tool? The purpose of the gap analysis is to provide project teams with a format in which to do the following:
- Compare the best practices with the processes currently in place in your organization.
- Determine the “gaps” between your organization’s practices and the identified best practices.
- Select the best practices you will implement in your organization.
How can the tool help you? Upon completion of the gap analysis, project teams will have the following:
- An understanding of the differences between current practices and best practices.
- An assessment of the barriers that need to be addressed before successful implementation of best practices.
- List the expected evidence-based best practice above each table, replacing the bracketed text with the description of your best practice(s).
- In column 1, list all the steps associated with the best practice process.
- In column 2, document your organization’s practices and describe how they differ from each best practice element. Be specific and include information such as policies, protocols, guidelines, and staffing.
- In column 3, identify barriers that may hinder successful implementation of each best practice strategy. Consider systems, procedures, policies, people, equipment, etc.
- In column 4, indicate whether your organization will implement the best practice strategy. If not, explain why.
- Repeat steps 1–5 for each best practice, adding rows as needed.
Stakeholder Analysis Tool
What is the purpose of this tool? The purpose of the stakeholder analysis is to help project initiators identify which departments and individuals will have an interest in the project, where barriers might exist, and what actions need to be taken to obtain the buy-in and participation of those departments and individuals.
How to use this tool: Complete the form with information regarding all the individuals you consider key stakeholders. You may need to set up a meeting with them to obtain their answers. Examples: information technology officer, director of supply/materials, housekeeping director, quality improvement (QI) department, therapy departments, diagnostic departments, emergency department. This form should be completed by the individual interested in initiating a quality improvement initiative. Use the completed template to identify actions needed to involve all stakeholders in the program. Ensure that all identified needs have been met before proceeding with the QI initiative. For example, the program may need process assistance from the QI department. Since this program may be competing with other QI priorities, it may be important to determine who shapes the QI agenda and how to get this program prioritized at a higher level.
Project Objectives Mapping Matrix
In the first column of the matrix below are the programmatic student learning outcomes (PSLOs) for your program. The school has defined these particular PSLOs as what the school wants its students to know or do by the end of their program. These PSLOs have been the foundation upon which the entire program has been built. Every course you have taken as part of this program was designed specifically to help you master these objectives.
In the matrix below you will map the objectives of your practicum project to the PSLOs. Every project objective does not have to map to a PSLO nor does every PSLO have to have something mapped to it, and a project objective can map to more than one PSLO.
A typical project will have 3 to 5 objectives. Enter your project objectives in the headings of each column. For each project object that maps to a PSLO, briefly describe how it aligns with the Program SLO in the corresponding box.
