Designing and Measuring Outcomes
As noted in previous courses of the DNP program, it is essential to design measurable outcomes that can guide the development, implementation, and evaluation of an initiative. For this Discussion, you are asked to examine professional standards and other factors that require consideration as you develop outcomes for your proposed evidence-based change. Think about the various groups that are invested in—or that may be affected by—this change. What measures would stakeholders need in order to help determine if the change aligns with organizational priorities and is successful in achieving its intended outcomes? Why is it important to establish accountability around this initiative?
