Awareness and knowledge are important steps in allowing change to happen. Indication shows that healthcare professionals are frequently uninformed of, and lack ease with, the newest evidence-based guidance. In addition, they may be conscious that new guidance has been delivered but don’t know how their present way of working will be altered to ensure they provide the finest care for patients in line with the leadership. Some professionals may feel that leadership challenges their independence or is not appropriate to their population, and so don’t reliably refer to it (Melnyk, 2011). Awareness and knowledge of what needs to change and why, are vital.
Acceptance and beliefs an individual’s individual principles and attitudes influence significantly on the way they act. Insights of the welfares of any planned change against the costs, both practical and financial, can be important. Insights of the opinions of others may also have an influence. Certain healthcare professionals may find it problematic to agree to take new guidance if it is in conflict with other guidance issued by professional bodies or the opinion of an influential colleague. Other professionals may not believe that references replicate the evidence or that they will attain better patient consequences. A being’s belief in their own aptitude to accept a new conduct also has an influence on whether an alteration is implementation (Portney, 2009). I would like to think 6 months or even a year from now the cardiac unit will still be using my evidence based project to decrease heart failure readmissions due to improved patient outcomes as evidenced by decreased readmissions.
