Advocating for Lasting Change

  • Slide 1

Hey there! My name is (Student). I want to address that the drug problem consumes the people, the families, the towns and the country and that the changes must be made to stand for the people and change the lives for the better.

  • Slide 2

Ensuring that long-term policy, financial and community support is obtained for proposed health system changes is a major component of the advocacy for institutional change. In making a big difference in Jordan, Minn.

for the necessary drug prevention program to occur, lawmakers and other important people have to be influenced to see that the program is of advantage and should be commenced at once. To advocate one has to articulate the rationale because of the evidence, outcomes expected, and funds required (Mackie et al. , 2020).

Proposed Change

  • Slide 3

It has erupted into the biggest public health menace assuming the level of a drug disaster that is entails multiple effects on towns across Minnesota including the town of Jordan where cases of drug abuse and kills are still being reported.

The kind of teaching and preventive programs that must be implemented in the targeted group, in our opinion, are Becker et al. , 2023 drug teaching and prevention programs. These shall educate the people about the issue with opioids and equip them with the effectively proven methods to help curb the vice and offer an opportunity for a fresh start.

Need for Policy and Financial Support

  • Slide 4

Ensuring and establishing the comprehensive drug prevention plan in Jordan, Minnesota requires policy support and more importantly funds. Of course, the support of regulators and financing from different groups like the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and at the federal level, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is required.

Implementation of treatment and teaching programmes at the system level relies on models that also enhance the ease of roll out and operations (Mackie et al. , 2020). This is the reason why oversight groups require collaboration right from the central authority to overcome opposition and other meager resources.

These people for instance can make changes by making rules, providing monetary help, and assembling employees from various places (Marsch et. al, 2021). Also, the ability of MDH and SAMHSA in compiling researches and in applying an evidence-based practice is also essential for ascertaining total programme’s efficiency as well as ensuring fuller compliance with the demand of the Jordanian community.

The health care system of Jordan might not be adequately transform its behaviors and procedures unless there are fresh guidelines that apply to upgrading. Guidelines and strategies devised by state and national health departments can assist in altering people’s ways by presenting them as correct and providing a means to act (Marsch et al. , 2021).

As a result, support from government health partnerships is valuable real help, measurement tools, and people to implement the maneuver because Jordan has a small amount of local funding and staff specialists (Joseph et al. , 2021).

It can also assist with data processing help in tracking results. What will cause changes for the better and to improve the quality of the service delivery which will meet the needs of the community are skills which will be developed through holding of meetings, talks and leadership. To transform poor results, as defined in the case of the country’s past drug prevention program, into tangible solutions for the people of Jordan, policy and financial commitment are needed to implement large scale solutions.

Assumptions that Support Rational

It involves a number of assumptions for instance; the abstaining from drugs requires help and assistance from the health officials at different levels. For appeal to study and as a reliable watchdog, the people in the community will support the project, the entire community will gather, and the project will become part of the health system (Nyoni et al. , 2022).

Therefore, policy adjustment and funding assistance are believed to be needed for making Jordan’s vision on evidence based education and expanded availability possible. Due to the desire of continued cooperation, better design changes, and ensuring that priorities for this deprivation remain constant, state and federal agency participation in combating this disease results in sustainable development improvements of the area highlighted (Gustavson et al. , 2021). The assistance they extend to communities makes them better prepared and fit for generations to come.

Intended Results of Proposed Changes

  • Slide 5

The Jordan Opioid Prevention and Education Program is founded on many studies that indicate the effectiveness of school based programmes. Expectations that various educational methodologies can reduce the likelihood of drug abuse and their related issues, have found considerable support in many research studies. The school-based programs of various types with the participation of teenagers can increase the information, changes in the attitude, and the decreased risk of action related to opioids by the teenagers (Marsch et al. , 2021).

Currently, there is rising incidence of youth in Jordan endorsing to opioids and researchers have noted that children and adolescents are easy to persuade. This therefore implies that there should be intervention programs that prevent them from using opioids before they get to a stage of being addicted. The MDH has stated that prevention messages and active training prior to normal trial periods will shield personalities.

In this manner, community-responsive planning, tools that are available to people of all languages and cultures, can be used to address localization data, including the observation that 11. A small portion of the population is of Hispanic origin, representing 1% of the MINNESOTA’S DEMOGRAPHIC picture according to the Minnesota Department of Health 2022.

Optimization is also facilitated by the application of data gathered from the various models on other similar rural Midwestern towns. Top officials in the health sector will work towards altering the program and in the process, they will be able to deliver a program that is fast in service delivery, measures up acceptable safety standards and at the same time facilitate achievement of public health goals.

Research has proved that the occurrence expenses of the prevention programs are extremely small compared to the massive money and societal vices that drug abuse brings about when it is not prevented (Shearer et al. , 2022). Therefore, implementing Kotter’s multi-phase model for managing the change would facilitate people in the Jordan to collaborate on this significant process.

Organizing quick wins through getting key partnerships in place sustains the momentum. Even if one cannot completely eliminate the chances of getting involved in a certain problem, it is possible to reduce the likelihood of it worsening, and this means that measures that can help prevent it can actually save a lot of cash. Preventive measures that are invested right from the onset help minimize the costs because they slow the progress of the difficulty that, if left unchecked, worsens and leads to further loss.

More significantly, if practices aimed at preventing drug overdoses were effective, the families of Jordanian individuals close to them would still not endure the unbearable pain of losing their loved ones to other preventable deaths such as overdose. Thus, when health officials include more staff in the approach and solve new policies it can be easier for good practice to be incorporated in the long run.

Budget Plan

  • Slide 6

It is ensured that the Jordan Opioid Prevention and Education Program will be initiated well in its first years with a made detailed budget. This encompasses $39,000 for paying employees and the tools and goods that the business will need when beginning its operations.

The approximate yearly expenditure estimated is three hundred and ten thousand dollars, which will address the project manager, program assistant, and field educators for the community classes training (Appendix A). Other things such as health insurance and other ongoing expenses such as teaching aids, trip reimbursement, and community promotion are also included (Nuckols et al. , 2021).

Funds from MOH and the Department of Minnesota would be the major source of funding Grants from the Government. Such grants would accord with the objectives the state has in the realms of prevention. It is wise to invest on qualified workforce that can manage the operations, employ Jordanians, and empower the latter with higher individual and collective leverage in the end.

Plan for Leading Transformational Evidence-based Change

  • Slide 7

Thus, to realize the maximum results for drug abuse prevention activity, the latter must have leadership at all levels of the combined framework for Jordan’s community and healthcare organizations. An advisory alliance declares co-ordination under mutual authority to ensure that plans are harmonized as planned and it offers the partners the flexibility to provide extra consumptions in areas where they are best suited.

The frontline therapists said that agencies should use more multi-leveled opportunities for screening and support during the routine meetings and engagement with youths in order to identify risks at an early stage (SAMHSA, 202?).

Screenings would prove useful in determining such recommendations as enrollment in school-based education programs or direct admission to the treatment programs as and when required. The culture training that care teams get also plays a role in helping people be more sensitive.

On this basis, the managers of an assigned informed care team propose targeted IT education to the community. Knowledge generators assist people to get to specific information through sharing knowledge by leaders of libraries. While on the other hand, workers can have a say when a facilitative leadership allows the public to come together for a common discussion proposing goals and cementing solutions that people can associate with (Gregory et al. , 2021).

Thus, it is possible to make small changes that are long-lasting by applying clear data comparison and smart leadership to keep all the associates moving in the same direction. Thus, policy support can be obtained by senior change leaders in the form of long-term policy modification that will create the needed cultural shift concerning the well-being of communities for generations (Paino et al. , 2020) that is achieved through outlining purpose and urgency.

Identification of Funding Authority

Federal funding as well as state funding is the common and easily identifiable sources of funding for the Jordan Opioid Prevention and Education Program. For example, the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) is one of the state govern mental organization that provides re sources toward the program.

Such groups assist public health initiatives through formulation of policies, researching, and providing funds tied with these core goals; for instance, raising awareness of drug use and the readiness of people to seek for treatment (SAMHSA, 2022).

Vision, Goals, and Change Theory

  • Slide 8

The main objective of the program is to empower the citizens of Jordan to eliminate the issue of drug abuse and the nasty consequences it brings through awareness and resources. These are goals to help change people’s minds from requiring shame for treatment and to ensure that those who are struggling with the disease have efficient access to it.

The Kotter model is the best plan because it can be adopted to steer major alterations in healthcare (Sumpter et al. , 2022). The first step motivates the parties to get involved by providing them with a notion of eradicating the worrying trends in the local area.

Clear and strong leading alliance implies that leaders from organizations, the governing bodies, and communities relate to and make decisions concerning the policy and ensure that the organizations continue to progress despite emerging issues (Mackie et al. , 2020).

Slide 9

Due to the severity of opioids to the health of the people, the value statements of the program relate to the potential partners’ desire to build safer communities and enhance the general health of the population. Distinguishing between the sectors and their responsibilities allows all the parties in question to understand what their role is; moreover, the goal offered for Jordan is realistic.

More limited targets such as expanding Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) strategies enable primary care doctors the instruments to intervene at Decision-making (Robinson & Wilson, 2020). At the same time, it is explained and understood that school districts can integrate dynamic warning sign teaching without any problem depending on its access to the groups of people at risk.

Keeping the spirit up in adoption and documenting the needs assist with continuous improvement that maintains the objective of sustainable knowledge enhancement and alteration of attitude that encompasses the youth forever (Marsch et al. , 2021). Transforming processes and cultures gradually from one to another will be beneficial in avoiding dependency hence making communities more secure in the future.

Future Wellness and Role of Visionary Leaders

  • Slide 10

A prognosis has been made that many individuals have suffered from opioid use, though coordinated action will bring improvement in the future for every resident of Jordan (Hurtubise et al. , 2021). Investing in preventative education, which people may not wish to fund immediately will benefit the later generations since kids will learn to make the correct decisions in the adulthood.

The number of community checks and treatment options will also rise and assist the presented users to recover faster. The healthcare leaders of the visionary kingdom of Jordan should continue to attract more partners to address this issue now to save other people from dying in preventable accidents (Becker et al. , 202 ).

The objectives of the suggested evidence-based opioid teaching and prevention programs in Jordanian schools, coupled with increased treatment options, are to make a difference even if the patterns of drug abuse are still evolving. As stated earlier, there are misuse loops and new types of the disease; however, with comprehensive teaching and caring, and research-based practice, the changes can be enormous.

NURS FPX 6218 Assessment 4 Advocating for Lasting Change

While earlier, the carriers of the virus faced social prejudice, today the approach is more liberal, and, accordingly, ad hoc techniques are employed, such as person-centered (Nuckols et al. , 2021). Because Jordan is a leader in its area, there is possibility that other countries in region would like to conform to the behavior of Jordan. Every life that is saved more growth and open minds are brought about.

Despite this fact that the road ahead of Jordan is long still, Jordanians will write this road in their own language in relations which are based on hope and strength. The strategic message was able to alter the perceptions of people during the / initial periods of the AIDS epidemic. Likewise, the modern activists can rehearse the sustainable solutions as long as vision the potential outcomes (Bryson et al. , 2021).


For this potentially viable future in which drug addiction rates decrease, all people in Jordan have to carry on with efforts to prevent individuals from getting addicted. For lawmakers to ensure that helpful systems remain in place to ensure that everyone accesses the services within the same standards, they have to prioritize with them over and over (Shearer et al. , 2022).

Hurtubise et al. (2021) define adaptive planning as operating on the presumption of the behaviours of the individuals and the circumstances within the context of what is occurring on the different terrains; new drug fads or shaky economics of certain countries, for instance, are likely to shape what the community requires. It can be concluded that possibility remains where there is a great desire.

Stakeholder Interest in Proposed Changes

  • Slide 11

Even more prevention can be made out of it based on data to support how they will cut a lot of expenses and time to be spent in sectors such as public health, criminal justice and health of families. An economic impact found out the overall cost of drug abuse in the country amounted to $58 billion every year according to Luo et al. , 2021.

However, according to the study, it is identified that for each dollar used to develop and implement awareness programs that seek to prevent people from using the substance, thirty five dollars can be saved because other financial solutions will not need to be sought after (Kangovi et al. , 2020).

On the other hand, parents who are willing to discuss threats and people in the community who want to take survivors as they are without questioning may change the tide.

Last but not least, this strategy aims at transforming the culture through the alteration of perception about drug use disorder management. when schools adopt a helpful approach students are more likely to seek assistance when they need it and do not feel embarrassed when asking (Robinson, & Wilson, 2020).

It is common in healthcare settings for one to view risk factors for the patient so that he or she can be enrolled for treatment as soon as possible. Concerning anger, to eliminate it the community looks for ways to minimize the negative impact and an example is seen in return. This is because occurrences are portrayed without phony, ill intentions or moralistic view (Minnesota Department of Health, 2020).

Former addicts can discuss their personal experiences in front of the public so that others can have a word to say depending on their circumstances. The fact was described in detail on different women’s faces which means that the target audience could see that bad things in the present do not necessarily turn into a worse situation in the future.


  • Slide 12

Since the drug problem is having such awful effects it is high time the Jordan community shifts right now, using courtesy and methods that are effective. The Jordan drug prevention and education program offers numerous advantages to suggesting that the advocates can get partners to make permanent change possible by proving that this service should be incorporated into the local health service with the help of appropriate policies and requirements.

Efforts of forming cooperation of like-minded stakeholders develop schemes to expand on a community’s strengths based on specific actions and to increase awareness of this complex issue among the masses. Although it is necessary to provide fairly equal and early help, it does not exclude such persons from being human beings with rights on drug abuse.
