Purpose:
To implement an evidence-based practice in a healthcare setting, the ability to lead
change and to identify stakeholders.
Please read the assignment in its entirety prior to initiating the activity.
Implementing an evidence-based practice in a healthcare setting requires the ability to lead
change. One of the first steps in planning an evidence-based practice project is to identify
stakeholders who control the resources (administrative, social, clinical, financial, etc.) needed to
implement the change and persuading them of the value of assessing current and proposed
practice.

Assignment:
Step 1: For this assignment, each student will create a 5-10 minute on-air video (no
PowerPoint…just you and a camera) that presents a plan for stakeholder education about the
student’s evidence-based practice project. The verbal presentation should include introducing
self and a brief description of stakeholder groups and each group’s role in the project
implementation; identify educational needs for each group; discuss the theoretical foundation
and conceptual framework underlying a proposed CSP intervention; outline a plan for delivering
the intervention; and cite the references used to develop the presentation.
The description of the educational intervention should indicate what stakeholders will be told
about the value of the project, how they will be kept informed of progress of the project, and how
they can help to facilitate the project.
Step 2: Prepare scripted notes as a reference for your verbal presentation. These notes will
correspond with the outline of the rubric and should be attached/uploaded with your assignment
submission. When recording your verbal presentation, it should be delivered in a manner as if
you were speaking to your project chair and/or program director and detailing them about your
project. Post your video on YouTube and submit the link and your scripted file (a word doc or
pdf). Please ensure that either your presentation is made public or that you provide your email
and a password to use in order to view it.
Step 3: Using your APA formatted template, create a WORD document and label the file Last
Name_First Name_SEP (example: Smith_Mary_SEP). Title your paper/script: Stakeholder
Education Plan.
Step 4: Submit your final document for grading via the assignments tab in Blackboard.

Sample Solution

Dante Alighieri played a critical role in the literature world through his poem Divine Comedy that was written in the 14th century. The poem contains Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso. The Inferno is a description of the nine circles of torment that are found on the earth. It depicts the realms of the people that have gone against the spiritual values and who, instead, have chosen bestial appetite, violence, or fraud and malice. The nine circles of hell are limbo, lust, gluttony, greed and wrath. Others are heresy, violence, fraud, and treachery. The purpose of this paper is to examine the Dante’s Inferno in the perspective of its portrayal of God’s image and the justification of hell. 

In this epic poem, God is portrayed as a super being guilty of multiple weaknesses including being egotistic, unjust, and hypocritical. Dante, in this poem, depicts God as being more human than divine by challenging God’s omnipotence. Additionally, the manner in which Dante describes Hell is in full contradiction to the morals of God as written in the Bible. When god arranges Hell to flatter Himself, He commits egotism, a sin that is common among human beings (Cheney, 2016). The weakness is depicted in Limbo and on the Gate of Hell where, for instance, God sends those who do not worship Him to Hell. This implies that failure to worship Him is a sin.

God is also depicted as lacking justice in His actions thus removing the godly image. The injustice is portrayed by the manner in which the sodomites and opportunists are treated. The opportunists are subjected to banner chasing in their lives after death followed by being stung by insects and maggots. They are known to having done neither good nor bad during their lifetimes and, therefore, justice could have demanded that they be granted a neutral punishment having lived a neutral life. The sodomites are also punished unfairly by God when Brunetto Lattini is condemned to hell despite being a good leader (Babor, T. F., McGovern, T., & Robaina, K. (2017). While he commited sodomy, God chooses to ignore all the other good deeds that Brunetto did.

Finally, God is also portrayed as being hypocritical in His actions, a sin that further diminishes His godliness and makes Him more human. A case in point is when God condemns the sin of egotism and goes ahead to commit it repeatedly. Proverbs 29:23 states that “arrogance will bring your downfall, but if you are humble, you will be respected.” When Slattery condemns Dante’s human state as being weak, doubtful, and limited, he is proving God’s hypocrisy because He is also human (Verdicchio, 2015). The actions of God in Hell as portrayed by Dante are inconsistent with the Biblical literature. Both Dante and God are prone to making mistakes, something common among human beings thus making God more human.

To wrap it up, Dante portrays God is more human since He commits the same sins that humans commit: egotism, hypocrisy, and injustice. Hell is justified as being a destination for victims of the mistakes committed by God. The Hell is presented as being a totally different place as compared to what is written about it in the Bible. As a result, reading through the text gives an image of God who is prone to the very mistakes common to humans thus ripping Him off His lofty status of divine and, instead, making Him a mere human. Whether or not Dante did it intentionally is subject to debate but one thing is clear in the poem: the misconstrued notion of God is revealed to future generations.
