Stakeholders are essential to change because they are the ones who need to buy into the idea. For my project I have proposed to add education on life style changes into our existing free education class. In order to make this happen I would need the support of my facility administrator, Regional director, and medical director. Outside of my organization it would be important to collaborate with the existing program in the community at the local health department. Empowering the people around you will give better results this includes stakeholders (Halm, 2010). You may have the idea but they have the resources to put the ideas into action. In order to make sure that the change is effective coming up with a plan is essential and executing the plan is the next part (Fineout-Overholt, 2011). I plan to first address my idea with my mentor and facility administrator by doing a presentation. Then I will address it with the regional director and medical director. I am most excited about reaching out to the public health nurse in charge of the diabetic education in my area. I will start there and then hope to meet with the board to address the epidemic in our area of diabetes ending in end stage renal disease and how are we going to work together to educate the community?
