Presenting information to an audience is a common skill that is needed for leaders who work in health care today. At some time in your career, you might attend a conference in person or virtually to share information about a project. Many health care conferences now include virtual poster presentation sessions.
For this fourth assignment, you will present what you learned while developing the Project Charter in the previous three assignments. Use the Poster Presentation Template file to complete this final assignment:
Week 2: Project Charter Part 1.
Week 4: Project Charter Part 2.
- Week 7: Project Charter Part 3.
- Week 9: Project Charter Part 4: Poster Presentation.
- The purpose of this assignment is to give you practice presenting the project charter that you have designed in a poster format. You will include the AIM statement, the team members, the target patient population, the methods for data collection, possible results of the project, and a conclusion that includes an explanation of how this project as a whole demonstrates process change leadership.
Access, download, and review the NHS 8040 Week 9 Poster Template [PPTX] file that you will use to complete this assignment. The template is designed to offer space for all of the information required in this assignment, but you are welcome to reorganize the design as appropriate to best present the specifics of your project charter. Exercise creativity while making sure your presentation is aligned to the requirements in the scoring guide.
For an example of the completed assignment, access and review the NHS 8040 Week 9 Exemplar Poster [PPTX] resource.
You are a health care leader who has just finished your first Project Charter. Imagine that you have been invited to present your project in the form of a poster to your organization or at a professional conference. Prepare your poster to succinctly describe the different parts of your project in text, pictures, and graphs or statistics.
How might the results of the project be communicated to sponsors, stakeholders, team members? Think about how the project will benefit the target population, the organization, and those served. How does this project demonstrate leadership in terms of a process change for those served, the organization and/or the profession?
Using the Poster Presentation Template [PPTX], complete the following to create a poster that acts as a visual presentation of your Project Charter:
Apply your creativity while using charts, graphs, and visual images to tell your story for the change improvement you have created and the value to those served. The Poster Presentation Template will help organize your information, but feel free to change the colors, rearrange sections, and otherwise use it to meet the requirements for the assignment.
Include a title at the top of the poster.
Write an introduction and provide some background information, including how you identified the problem or “gap,”the current state or existing condition versus the desired state (use citations as needed), what you want to improve, its relevance to healthcare, and what message you hope to convey related to your project, quality improvement, and leadership in the 21st century of health care.
Include your problem statement (1-2 sentences).
List the AIM statement from your project charter.
- List the team members that you selected, highlighting the leader of the team.
- Write out the steps for your project methodology, including the proposed intervention and how it will be measured. Consider possible next steps to get it started.
- Explain the data management plan, for example, what data will be collected, by whom, and how it will be protected (ethical considerations).
- Include a section about the 3-4 possible next steps that you could take now that you have completed the charter and if you wanted to get started on this project. Include any “lessons learned” and any information related to diversity, equity, and/or inclusion.
