For this assessment, consider taking one of these two approaches:
1. Build on the work done in your first three assessments and create an online tool kit or resource repository that
will help the audience of your in-service understand the research behind your safety improvement plan and
put the plan into action.
2. Locate a safety improvement plan (your current organization, the Institution for Healthcare Improvement, or a
publicly available safety improvement initiative) and create an online tool kit or resource repository that will
help an audience understand the research behind the safety improvement plan and how to put the plan into
Google Sites is recommended for this assessment; the tools are free to use and should offer you a blend of flexibility
and simplicity as you create your online tool kit. Please note that this requires a Google account; use your Gmail or
GoogleDocs login, or create an account following the directions under the “Create Account” menu.

Using Google Sites, assemble an online resource tool kit containing at least 12 annotated resources that you
consider critical to the success of your safety improvement initiative. These resources should enable nurses and
others to implement and maintain the safety improvement you have developed.
It is recommended that you focus on the 3 or 4 most critical categories or themes with respect to your safety
improvement initiative. For example, if your initiative concerns improving workplace safety for practitioners, you
might choose broad themes such as general organizational safety and quality best practices; environmental safety
and quality risks; individual strategies to improve personal and team safety; and process best practices for reporting
and improving environmental safety issues.
Following the recommended scheme, you would collect 3 resources on average for each of the 4 categories. Each
resource listing should include the following:
An APA-formatted citation of the resource with a working link.
A description of the information, skills, or tools provided by the resource.
A brief explanation of how the resource can help nurses better understand or implement the safety
A description of how nurses can use this resource and when its use may be appropriate.
Remember that you must make your site ‘public’ so that your faculty can access it. Check out the Google Sites
resources for more information.
