Based on the reasons given regarding the need to implement the change, the patient feedback has been informative in determining how to make them feel valued. For instance, the patients mentioned that they could support the change if the nurses educated them about the side effects of the cognitive training treatment (Spencer, 2019). Further, the healthcare workers, including nurses and support staff, mentioned that training workshops on implementing the interventions would prepare them to deliver the nonmedicinal treatment (Spencer, 2019). Considering the requests generated from the feedback has been ideal in making positive steps in implementing the change.
