Sample Paper

Is the problem or opportunity clearly stated?

No, the problem is neither stated nor clearly explained. The discussion has only mentioned improvements from the newly introduced reform at Altru Hospital kids and adolescent mental health sector.

Do you know what the team is going to do about the problem?

Yes, it’s clearly stated that the Altru Hospital is set to introduce the sign-off sheet and journal as they try to increase decision making and increase responsibility among patients and staff.

Has the team set a numerical goal to quantify the amount of the desired improvement?

Not really. No figure has been mentioned showing clearly outlined data showing the improvements set to occur and what percent of the population it will affect. According to (Benwell & Sweetman, 2016), the provision of data in such research is critical to know the people of those who will benefit from the program.

Do you know the calendar date by which the team plans to achieve the goal?

Yes, there is a set deadline day of September 1, 2022. The team recognizes that the set reform will take its action and become a tradition in the health institution (Lee, Desai & Phan, 2017). This ensures activities supposed to be done to ensure the success of this program is done on time to not collide with the deadline date.

Is it clear who will benefit from the improvement?

Yes, Altru Hospital’s patients are set to gain from the reform as it will enhance responsibility and healthy decision-making. The institution’s staff will benefit from the improvement as well.

Is the scope of the project clear?

No information has been provided on how the research was done; fundamental problems that made it vital to bring up the reform have not been outlined. The statement provided goes straight to the point.

Do you know why this improvement method is essential?

Yes, one of the importance is that it contains information about individual patients, ensuring that medical practitioners safeguard such information. A sin-out sheet also ensures that all patients are safe, knowing that the sheet also provides information on the total population of the hospital. It also involves storing and managing records appropriately so that the information will be available to you when you need it.
