Roger’s Diffusion of Innovation Theory

Roger’s Diffusion of Innovation Theory is a particularly good theoretical framework to apply to an EBP project. However, learners may also choose to use change models, such as Duck’s Change Curve Model or the Transtheoretical Model of Behavioral Change. Other conceptual models presented 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 intervention in a health care setting.

In 250-500 words, apply a change model to your implementation plan.

Apply a change model and carry your implementation through each of the stages, phases, or steps identified in the chosen model.

In addition, create a conceptual model of the project. The conceptual model should be placed in the Appendix.

Part E: Implementation Plan


In another 500-750 words provide a description of the methods to be used to implement the proposed solution. Include the following:

1. Describe the resources (human, fiscal, and other) or changes needed in the implementation of the solution. Consider the clinical tools or process changes that would need to take place. Provide a resource list. The resource list should be placed in the appendices.

2. Use strategical analysis to establish the feasibility of the implementation plan. Address the costs for personnel, consumable supplies, equipment (if not provided by the institute), computer-related costs (librarian consultation, database access, etc.), and other costs (travel, presentation development). Make sure to provide a brief rationale for each. Develop a budget plan. The budget plan should be placed in the Appendices.

3. List any specific barriers (real or potential) that will need to be assessed and eliminated. How will you manage barriers that cannot be eliminated?

4. Describe the amount of time needed to complete this project. Create a timeline. Make sure the timeline is general enough that it can be implemented at any date. Summarize the timeline in your narrative and include a graphic of your timeline in the Appendices.

Your total paper will be 750-1250 words, not including title and reference pages. You should have only one title page and one reference section.
