Time and Resource Allocation
Several factors must be considered in the process of implementing the proposed change of bedside shift report (BSR). Time and availability of resources are the most important factors that should be considered. The success of implementing BSR as per the change proposal depends on customized planning and the resources available for use. Selecting the appropriate timeline allows the change management teams to pull together the necessary resources. It also promotes the participation of key stakeholders in the change implementation process.
The resources required for the implementation of the proposed change include digital telehealth equipment, additional manpower, as well as financial resources. Resources to facilitate extensive research are also required for the change implementation process. Financial resources are the most crucial in this process because everything else depends on the availability of sufficient funds. However, the required resources must be verified and approved by the board of directors at the facility before the change implementation process is officiated. For this reason, the timeframe must be designed to accommodate consultation with key stakeholders. The most appropriate timeframe, therefore, is six months beginning from the approval date for the change implementation project. Below is a detailed schedule of the activities to be undertaken, the resources and the time allocated for each activity.
