Influencing Multiple Systems through Evidence-Based Change

Influencing Multiple Systems through Evidence-Based Change (1 page)

Write a cohesive response that addresses the following:
•    Describe at least three evolving issues that are internal or external to your practicum setting that could affect the implementation and sustainability of your proposed change. From what systems level do those issues originate (e.g., organizational, local, state, national, global) and what other systems are then involved in response to that factor?
•    How might your proposed change, in turn, lead to shifts at other levels beyond your initial focus?
