NHS FPX 6004 Assessment 3 Training Session for Policy Implementation

Student Name Capella University NHS-FPX 6004 Health Care Law and Policy Prof. Name Date Training Session for Policy Implementation Welcome all; this presentation aims to illuminate the training session for policy implementation in our renowned Mercy Medical Center. First, we will discuss the agenda to discuss. Agenda  This presentation will discuss the training strategies for physicians to implement policies in MMC. First, I will discuss the need for this policy and evidence-based strategies for working with physicians to implement the new policy. Moreover, I will highlight the policy developed for Diabetics in MMC and its impact on patients and overall hospital functions. Furthermore, I will discuss the role of physicians in implementing new policy and practice guidelines. Lastly, I will discuss some instructional content, learning activities, and materials required for a training session. Need for Policy Implementation  The need for policy implementation arose when the dashboard metrics on Diabetes management in MMC showed underperformance in several benchmarks, including HbA1c testing and eye and foot examination. Considering the alarming situation where the health of diabetics was at stake, the healthcare authorities endeavored to develop a policy on HbA1c testing for diabetics. This policy mandated HbA1c testing every six months for all diabetics to evaluate the glycemic levels and promote care and treatment accordingly. For this purpose, your presence as primary care physician is highly honored for your staunch and devoted struggles to bring a meaningful change in patients’ lives. You all will play a key role in implementing this policy in our hospital so diabetics’ quality of life can be enhanced.  Evidence-Based Strategies for Working with Physicians To work with physicians to promote their buy-in and prepare them to implement a new policy and associated practice guidelines, it is essential to look for evidence-based strategies that promise these results. Several evidence-based strategies are present in studies that enhance working with physicians, such as communicating openly and transparently with physicians in meetings where the rationale behind this policy on HbA1c is highlighted and their valuable insights are welcomed (Toth-Manikowski et al., 2021). Moreover, ensuring their inclusivity in the decision-making process of policy development will make them feel valued, and their buy-in and participation in the policy implementation process can be enhanced. Healthcare organizations can bring a reward and bonuses policy for physicians who successfully implement the HbA1c policy and practice guidelines. This will promote their preparation in the implementation process of the new policy, as they will be rewarded with incentives for proper adherence to policy implementation and practice guidelines (Vlaev et al., 2019).  Additionally, offering educational sessions through the use of social media on the importance of HbA1c testing frequency description and associated practice guidelines as evidence-based studies and authentic organizations can help prepare them to implement new policy and practice guidelines. The educational content should be tailored to their specific concerns and areas of interest and its benefit for patients regarding their quality of care and safety (Chan et al., 2019). NHS FPX 6004 Assessment 3 Training Session for Policy Implementation Another evidence-based strategy to work with physicians includes fostering a culture of interdisciplinary collaboration where physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and hospital administrators collaborate to manage patients’ diabetes and create convenience for all team members in providing high-quality care to diabetics from HbA1c testing and evaluation to their diabetes management (Kassai et al., 2020). The effectiveness of these strategies is evident from the research-based studies where these strategies have brought effective results and, if implemented correctly, can bring effective results in MMC to promote policy implementation for diabetics. Moreover, some measures can indicate the early success of implementing these policies, such as well-managed diabetes in patients, fewer hospital readmission rates due to untreated and unmanaged diabetes, improved patient satisfaction, and reduced diabetes-related complications evaluation through dashboard metrics. Impact of New Policy and Practice Guidelines Implementing the HbA1c policy and associated practice guidelines positively impacts the patients, the work-life of the health professionals, and the hospital’s overall performance and reputation. By stringent compliance with the developed policy, patients can get their glycemic levels evaluated regularly through HbA1c testing, and physicians can provide appropriate care treatments, including self-management education alone or pharmacological therapy. This will improve glycemic control with fewer diabetes-related complications when hyperglycemia prevails (Suh et al., 2023). Moreover, biannual HbA1c testing enables healthcare professionals to identify patterns and trends in blood glucose levels that are useful in adjusting treatments and preventing drastic fluctuations in glycemic levels. This policy will enable patient-centered care according to their HbA1c levels and promote treatment adherence in diabetics. Considering the healthcare organization’s perspective, this policy can promote better care for diabetics and enhance job satisfaction among healthcare professionals as they provide care treatments according to the practice guidelines. Moreover, the hospital’s reputation will be enhanced and sustained as it provides effective care treatment to diabetic patients, intricately regulating their blood glucose levels through this policy. Practice Guidelines EHR in reminding diabetics’ HbA1c testing schedule will lead to strong adherence to policy implementation, as notifications on individual’s patient’s HbA1c testing will enable healthcare professionals to conduct and evaluate these tests. Moreover, practicing patient education on HbA1c significance through educational brochures will enlighten patients on glycemic levels and what they indicate, leading to empowered patients as they will be eager to maintain their glycemic levels (Chen et al., 2021). Furthermore, the healthcare staff training will enhance their knowledge of HbA1c, particularly in novice physicians and nurses who may neglect these tests in patients, leading to improved quality of care. Effects on Physicians’ Daily Work Routines Implementation of this policy and practice guidelines can impact physicians’ daily work routines as they will have to overwork and guide patients on HbA1c testing with its significance. The training sessions for physicians may require extra time leading to work burnout and anxiety. Moreover, physicians will need to collaborate with nurses or laboratory technicians to implement this policy as they perform these tests properly; this may lead to longer wait times and impact physicians’ work routines in the hospital. The physicians must
