DSMES Difusion of Innovation Theory

User Generated




Roger's diffusion of innovation theory is a particularly good theoretical framework to apply to an EBP project. However, students may also choose to use change models, such as Duck's change curve model or the transtheoretical model of behavioral change. Other conceptual models, such as a utilization model (Stetler's model) and EBP models (the Iowa model and ARCC model) can also be used as a framework for applying your evidence-based proposal in clinical practice. Apply one of the above models and carry your implementation through each of the stages, phases, or steps identified in the chosen model.

In 500-750 words (not including the title page and references page), discuss applying one of the change models to the implementation plan:

  1. Identify the selected model or theoretical framework and discuss its relevance to your project.
  2. Discuss each of the stages in the change model/framework.
  3. Describe how you would apply each stage in your proposed implementation.

In addition, create a conceptual model of the project. Although you will not be submitting the conceptual model you design in Topic 4 with the narrative, you will include the conceptual model in the appendices for the final paper.

You are required to cite three to five sources to complete this assignment. Sources must be published within the last 5 years and appropriate for the assignment criteria and nursing content.

Diffusion of Innovation Theory: Culturally Adapted DSME/S in African-Americans
The Diffusion of Innovation theory is commonly considered a valuable theoretical
framework for steering innovative ideas into routine use. Instead of trying to change the
adopters, the model stresses the importance of adjusting and presenting innovation in a userfriendly version that meets the needs of all adopters. It also emphasizes the critical role of
messaging, and peer networking in the adoption process (Dearing and Cox, 2018). Initially, only
a small group of people embrace the new idea. However, as dissemination of information occurs,
more and more people begin to use the innovation building-up to acritical mass. The idea then
progressively become more widely used, achieving saturation. The intervention intends to use
this model as a scaffold to implement the Diabetes ...

I was having a hard time with this subject, and this was a great help.
