Practicum Project Plan/Proposal

The setting for my practicum project is within the Wound Care Department at my current employer, which has been scoring poorly when it comes to communication. I will be working with the department director Ms. Sylvia Coleman, and the project aim is to promote excellent communication within the department in order to provide an improvement on patient satisfaction ratings for the hospital. We need to give people a reason to care in order to promote a more pleasant and less stressful place to work we needed to work on the communication process amongst staff members and patients (Mazhisham et al., 2021). I found that a lot of the unsatisfactory comments regarding care were coming from the communication process within the department. 

The tools I used were the different tools that the hospital uses which were the discharged patient surveys as well as inpatient score cards. I will be using the information given to decipher the problems in communication that are most common from each of the surveys collected within the last 3 months and compare them with the patient surveys prior to the change of ownership. Ongoing inpatient surveys using score cards will be used, along with discharge patient surveys to obtain the sustainability of this project. I chose to work with the Wound Care Department because I conducted some brief research and found that there were a lot of comments regarding gaps in communication in the patient surveys that were collected from their specific patients. Coincidently, these comments increased after the hospital went through a change of ownership. In order to gain a better rating from patients receiving wound care I will have to put in quite a bit of work on revamping the communication tools used for them. The current tool appeared very confusing to me, and by improving this tool it will help reconcile individual patient wound care orders, improve patient satisfaction, and increase the quality of care.
