Policy Proposal Presentation

Policy Proposal Presentation

Policy Proposal Presentation

Record a slide presentation with Script for the presentation, supported by 8–12-slides, for one of the stakeholder groups identified in your Assessment 2 Policy Proposal, which addresses current performance shortfalls, the reasons why new policy and practice guidelines are needed to eliminate those shortfalls, and how the group’s work will benefit from the changes.
It is important that health care leaders be able to clearly articulate policy positions and recommendations and garner buy-in and support from stakeholder groups for policy and practice changes in their organizations. Unfortunately, effective communication is often lacking. Consequently, it is important for health care leaders, when leading change, to ensure that clear and open communication is ongoing and informative.

  • An important aspect of change leadership is the ability to address diverse groups of stakeholders and create buy-in and support for your ideas and proposals for change. This assessment provides you with an opportunity to demonstrate and hone these skills.
  • Assessment Instructions
  • Record a slide presentation, with audio voiceover, for one of the stakeholder groups you identified in your Assessment 2 Policy Proposal. Inform the group of current performance shortfalls, introduce the proposed policy, explain why the policy is needed, and present policy-driven practice guidelines to resolve the performance issue. You must also obtain buy-in from the group by explaining the positive effects of the policy and practice guidelines on their work.
    Note: Remember that you can submit all, or a portion of, your draft presentation to Smarthinking for feedback, before you submit the final version for this assessment. If you plan on using this free service, be mindful of the turnaround time of 24–48 hours for receiving feedback.
    The presentation requirements outlined below correspond to the scoring guide criteria, so be sure to address each main point. Read the performance-level descriptions for each criterion to see how your work will be assessed. In addition, be sure to note the requirements for presentation format and length and for supporting evidence.

    • Summarize your proposed organizational policy and practice guidelines.
      • Identify applicable local, state, or federal health care policy or law that prescribes relevant performance benchmarks that your policy proposal addresses.
      • Keep your audience in mind when creating this summary.
    • Interpret, for stakeholders, the relevant benchmark metrics that illustrate the need for the proposed policy and practice guidelines.
      • Make sure this is a brief review of the evaluation you completed in your Assessment 1 Dashboard Metrics Evaluation.
      • Make sure you are interpreting the dashboard metrics in a way that is understandable and meaningful to the stakeholders to whom you are presenting.
    • Explain how your proposed policy and practice guidelines will affect how the stakeholder group does its work.
      • How might your proposal alter certain tasks or how the stakeholder group performs them?
      • How might your proposal affect the stakeholder group’s workload?
      • How might your proposal alter the responsibilities of the stakeholder group?
      • How might your proposal improve working conditions for the stakeholder group?
    • Explain how your proposed policy and practice guidelines will improve quality and outcomes for the stakeholder group.
      • How are your proposed changes going to improve the quality of the stakeholder group’s work?
      • How will these improvements enable the stakeholder group to be more successful?
      • What evidence supports your conclusions or presents alternative perspectives?
    • Present strategies for collaborating with the stakeholder group to implement your proposed policy and practice guidelines.
      • What role will the stakeholder group play in implementing your proposal?
      • Why is the stakeholder group and their collaboration important for successful implementation?
    • Deliver a persuasive, coherent, and effective audiovisual presentation.
      • Address the anticipated needs and concerns of your audience.
      • Stay focused on key policy provisions and the impact of practice guidelines on the group.
      • Adhere to presentation best practices.
      • Proofread your presentation slides to minimize errors that could distract the audience and make it more difficult for them to focus on the substance of your proposed policy and practice guidelines.
    • Example Assessment: You may use the Assessment 3 Example [PDF] to give you an idea of what a Proficient or higher rating on the scoring guide would look like.
      Presentation Format and Length
      You may use Microsoft PowerPoint or other suitable presentation software to create your slides. If you elect to use an application other than PowerPoint, check with your faculty to avoid potential file compatibility issues.
      If using PowerPoint to create your presentation slides, you may use the SoNHS Professional Presentation Guidelines [PPTX] as a template.
      Be sure that your slide deck includes the following slides:
    • Title slide.
      • Presentation title.
      • Your name.
      • Date.
      • Course number and title.
    • References (at the end of your presentation). Apply current APA formatting to all citations and references.
    • Your slide deck should consist of 8–12 slides, not including a title and references slide.
      Note: If you have technical difficulties in recording your audio, you may, in place of the audio, provide a complete script of what you intended to say in the notes section of each slide. If you require the use of assistive technology or alternative communication methods to participate in this activity, please contact DisabilityServices@Capella.edu to request accommodations.
      Supporting Evidence
      Cite 3–5 sources of scholarly, professional, or policy evidence to support your analysis and recommendations.
      Portfolio Prompt: You may choose to save your presentation to your ePortfolio.
      Competencies Measured
      By successfully completing this assessment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the course competencies through the following assessment scoring guide criteria:

        This presentation is designed as a model to help you develop professional-quality PowerPoint presentations, and will take you through the parts of a typical presentation. On your title slide, in addition to the title, please be sure to include the date, your name, Capella University, and the course name. The title should reflect your topic and not the assignment name.


        Microsoft PowerPoint

        Disseminates information

        Can add visuals such as illustrations or graphs

        Can add film clips, sound, and animation



        © 2018 CAPELLA UNIVERSITY – Confidential and Proprietary

        Presentation development is an important skill for your Capella program and will enhance your communication and presentation skills in your daily practice settings. Professional presentations enable you to share information and visual representations with your audience, whether in a course, a meeting, or as part of an educational opportunity.


        There are some rules for presenters that will help you create powerful and professional presentations. At Capella, it is also important that you develop the skill of adding audio to your presentation. The guidelines presented here are designed to help you set up a slide deck. You can also add links to film clips, animations, and graphics to the presentation.


        Remember that references should be included for your sources and should follow APA guidelines. Your reference list will appear at the end of the presentation. On the slide itself, provide a citation with authors and year of publication, as you would in an APA paper. It may be in smaller type. Make certain your references are scholarly, fewer than 5 years old, and peer reviewed. You do not have to provide the citation on the slide and in the speaker’s notes; one or the other is usually sufficient.



        Getting Started

        Create a topic outline based on grading rubric

        Do not use complete sentences for headings

        Choose a slide design

        Consider contrast of text and background

        Create a slide or two as needed

        Address each criterion in the rubric









        © 2018 CAPELLA UNIVERSITY – Confidential and Proprietary

        When creating a presentation for an assignment, be sure to read through and understand the instructions for your presentation as well as the grading criteria.


        Try to limit your title to a single line, and remember to use a short descriptive phrase rather than a sentence.


        The grading rubric serves as a good guide for your slides. Try to create one or two slides for each criterion of the rubric.


        Be sure you look at the time frame for the presentation and the number of slides you should include in the presentation. When using the grading rubric as an outline, look at the topics for ideas.


        While your Capella audience will view your presentation from a computer screen, you do need to think about what your slides would look like on a big screen in a classroom, boardroom, or from a stage.

        Be sure to choose a background that is visually pleasing with a contrasting color for the text. Consider that some viewers may be color-blind, and rely on light-to-dark contrast for legibility. Use a solid color or choose a design from your software—or make one yourself. Be careful to avoid overly complex backgrounds; the message is what matters. Refer to the MS Office link on the Resources slide to learn how to ensure that your presentations are accessible.




        General Guidelines

        5–7 Rule

        Limit words to 5–7 per line

        Limit lines to 5–7 per slide


        Headline type should be 24–28 points

        Bullet or body type should be 14–18 points for readability

        Avoid decorative type: use Arial or Times




        © 2018 CAPELLA UNIVERSITY – Confidential and Proprietary

        Blank background (“white space”) keeps the information clear, easy to read, and memorable. The 5–7 rule is a helpful guideline. Use short phrases and you won’t find yourself reading your slides to the audience. Use speaker’s notes for details.


        Some experts recommend using only sans-serif typefaces such as Arial or Helvetica to avoid the “jaggy” look that may be visible in the “feet” of serif typefaces such as Times New Roman. With the availability of high-resolution monitors, this is less of a concern than in the past. Make sure to follow the requirements in your assignment.


        When submitting presentations for class, remember to include a transcript. Kaltura provides captioning in about 24 hours that you can use to create your transcript or you may write your own. Be sure to find out your faculty member’s preferred transcript format.




        Extras: Typographic Elements

        Word Art

        Fancy lettering for titles: best for flyers or posters



        © 2018 CAPELLA UNIVERSITY – Confidential and Proprietary

        Any graphical elements you use should be in service of the message. Avoid inappropriate decorative typefaces, unprofessional color choices, or too much of anything. This is not to discourage you from using text as a design element, but to caution you to use it wisely. The next slide provides a good example.


        Also, be consistent in your use of end punctuation. Use periods throughout or not at all. Because most bullets should be short phrases, periods are probably not needed.



        Extras: Graphic Support Elements

        Smart Art

        More interesting than a table


        A good way

        Add text in or out of the grid



        To present points with flair

        Don’t overdo it!




        © 2018 CAPELLA UNIVERSITY – Confidential and Proprietary

        While you want to be engaging, resist the urge to add too much to your slides. Use graphics to demonstrate, clarify, or emphasize your points. Tables and charts can provide helpful information—but only if their content is easily and quickly read.


        Extras: Illustrations

        Avoid low-resolution or copyrighted art and photos




        © 2018 CAPELLA UNIVERSITY – Confidential and Proprietary

        Graphics can add a cue for visual learners, but again, too many can distract the audience. Try to use a consistent visual approach throughout your presentation for the charts and images you use as well as for the slides themselves. Make sure images are crisp and not overly detailed; the viewer should understand what is going on immediately.


        You can use photos, illustrations, or clip art. If you use graphics from the Internet, Microsoft Office, or a stock image service, be sure to adhere to applicable copyright laws in addition to any terms of use. Obtain permission to use copyrighted art, which may include adding references on the slide. The Resources slide at the end of the presentation includes a link to instructions for citing images in APA style.

        Remember to insert versus pasting any images into your file to maintain resolution. Copying and pasting will result in a blurry image.


        Speaker’s Notes




        © 2018 CAPELLA UNIVERSITY – Confidential and Proprietary

        Use speaker’s notes (as we have here) to provide detail and a transcript as needed.


        Your faculty will be looking for your speaker’s notes when grading assignments—especially if you cannot be heard for some reason. If there is no audio in the presentation, speaker’s notes are vital to communicating your points.


        Recorded Presentations: Kaltura

        Using Kaltura Campus resource



        © 2018 CAPELLA UNIVERSITY – Confidential and Proprietary

        There are various options available for you to record a presentation. Kaltura and Adobe Connect are discussed here because they are available through Capella and are supported by Capella IT. Kaltura, which is available in all courserooms, can be used in several ways: you can share the screen with or without a webcam, record yourself presenting on the webcam, or record only the slides with or without voice-over. Kaltura automatically generates captioning in about 24 hours; note that you must still include speaker’s notes.


        On the Resources slide at the end of the presentation are links to two useful Campus resources for Kaltura: Using Kaltura, which provides detailed instructions (as shown in this screen shot), and a video tutorial, Kaltura Basics.


        Recorded Presentations: Adobe Connect

        Adobe Connect Quick Start Tutorial




        © 2018 CAPELLA UNIVERSITY – Confidential and Proprietary

        Adobe Connect is another option. While it’s most often used for hosting and attending online meetings, it can also be used to record presentations. There are several Campus tutorials available on Adobe Connect depending on your needs; links to Using Adobe Connect [PDF] and the Adobe Connect Quick Start Tutorial video are on the Resources slide at the end of this presentation.


        Finishing the Presentation


        Proofread again

        Run spell check

        Read it aloud

        Ask someone to read it to you




        © 2018 CAPELLA UNIVERSITY – Confidential and Proprietary

        Polish your work. Correct any spelling, grammar, or punctuation errors and remove any extra spaces in the slides and the speaker’s notes. A professional-quality presentation will help you feel more confident as a presenter, and will encourage your audience to have confidence in your message too.







        Tell audience what you will tell them


        Present the content


        Review briefly what you have covered





        © 2018 CAPELLA UNIVERSITY – Confidential and Proprietary

        These bullets represent the parts of a basic presentation. Include a wrap-up slide like this one. Ask the audience if they have any questions and/or provide a summary.






        © 2018 CAPELLA UNIVERSITY – Confidential and Proprietary

        You are encouraged to take advantage of the various resources Capella has assembled for learners. This slide contains links to the resources mentioned in the presentation as well as some additional helpful links.




        Thank You!



        © 2018 CAPELLA UNIVERSITY – Confidential and Proprietary

        We hope this presentation is a helpful resource as you prepare professional and scholarly presentations.
