DQ week three (a) What are some general ways of evaluating the effectiveness of a research utilization project in an organization?One way of evaluating the effectiveness of a research utilization project in an organization is by influencing decisions through result communication. Communication of information underlies all research utilization. The information is usually produced by individuals who produce it and then pass it to those who can make decisions out of it (Royle and Blythe 71). The other way is translating and synthesizing. Research is the same as delivering of services. It contains vocabularies, which might not be understood by non researchers. Hence, there is need for interpretation of findings to enable non-researchers make decisions. There is also need to integrate several researches and form evidence out of them to strengthen one’s findings. FRONTIERS present good examples of how research findings should be synthesized and translated for the sake of producing programmatically useful information (Royle and Blythe 72). There is a need to communicate results via numerous channels to reach the same audience many times and several audiences at least once. This can include. national workshops, international conferences, and program briefs among others. Discuss ideas of how to deliver feedback in ways that would decrease the defensive response most staff respond with?Feedback should focus on description instead of judgment. Describing behavior will be a report of what took place while judgment behavior evaluates what took place in terms of wrong or right, bad or good. Evaluative language will prompt an individual to respond defensively (DiCens 38). One should observe instead of inference. Observing is seeing what can be seen or listening to one’s behavior while inference is the assumption and interpretation one makes out of seeing or hearing. One should be keen on what a person did and the reaction. Reference should be made to what an individual did rather than what is imagined of the individual, adverbs describing action should be used rather than adjectives describing qualities (DiCens 39). For instance, instead of telling one that he or she talks too much, tell him or her that your opinion in the staff meeting was considerable. Works CitedDiCens, Alba, Cullum Nicky and Ciliska Donna.
