Module 4-Plan to Evaluate Implementation
- You are expected to develop a plan to evaluate the implementation of the EBP project. Please review all the past readings, table template, resources, instructions, and rubric. Please include a narrative that defines the baseline data (this is described in section A below). You may also add additional data as noted in the sample paper if appropriate to your EBP proposal. The table for this plan should include Sections B through D below. See the table template (please click on this link).
