Tochange the views of the staff nurses and administration concerningthe need for change would require some effort. The initial step ofimplementing the process would be to identify with the stages thatthey may be forced to go through for a change to take place.According to Williams and von Fintel (2012), using a change modeloften works to reduce any obstacles that may occur in the process ofchange implementation. Analyzing the stages of change helps otherstaff members to understand the logic behind the suggestion and hencemanage resistance (Williams &amp von Fintel, 2012). It is alsocrucial to address failure and the side to it by addressing itsemotional side. However, it is vital to involve the affectedpersonnel such the administration and staff nurses to provide themwith the framework for change and the need for it.

Beforeimplementing the practice change, it is crucial to organize andclarify the goal of making the change, the stakeholders that may beaffected by it, and the reason for undertaking that change(Castiglione &amp Ritchie, 2012). The concerns that arise inpractice that necessitate for that change to take place should beaddressed and reviewed before implementing the practice change.

Tosustain the practice change, one can evaluate the change strategiesafter the process of implementation. It is important to collect dataand analyze the findings concerning the new practice and at the sametime, review the recommended revisions with the staff nurses(Fletcher et al., 2015). Also, to maintain the change, it isfundamental to present the evidence-based protocols to collaboratingpractitioners and the practice council. But above all, to conduct aneducation for the nursing staff concerning the protocol as well asplanning ongoing monitoring on all nursing units is a very crucialstep in preserving the practice change. The Roy adaptation modelwould be useful in the implementation of this practice change becausethe aim of its development was to support nursing promotedadaptation. Its central concepts are made up of the components ofhealth, environment, person, and nursing. The model views groups andindividuals as adaptive structures that would behave in a manner thatthey respond to environmental stimuli such as residual, conceptual,and focal. The environmental stimuli would help change the opinion ofthe staff nurses and administration by assisting them to cope withthe new practice.
