Compare and contrast two change theories, and determine which theory makes the most sense for implementing your specific EBP project. Why? Has your mentor used either theory, and to what result?
The first change theory is Lewin’s Change Theory. This theory is very widely used in nursing. This theory has three stages the unfreezing stage, moving stage, and refreezing stage. The theory has driving and resistant forces and for the theory to be successful the driving forces have to overcome the resistant forces. The other change theory is Rogers’ Change Theory. This theory has 5 stages and they are awareness, interest, evaluation, implementation and adoption.(Oguejiofo,2017) It is successful when nurses who ignored the proposed change earlier adopt it because of what they hear from nurses who adopted it initially. Both of these theory’s are widely used in nursing and both require nurses that want the change or who are willing to make the change. My mentor has used the Lewin’s change theory recently. The hospital already has hourly rounding but she just introduced new paperwork that has to be signed every hour. The unfreezing period she just explained how the new way will be better and she showed the nurses how it will be easier because the techs can also sign the sheet. The moving stage she let the nurses tell her how they feel about the whole situation and letting them express what they think will work. The final stage is refreezing and during this stage she went around for the first week making sure the nurses get this in their daily habit. I believe this theory makes more sense to my EBP because there are a lot of nurses that will be the driving force to make this happen and less people being the resistant force. So, it will be more likely to succeed.
