o With what participants?
o Who were your interprofessional collaborators?
o How did you lead them in this project?

Â· Evidence-based rationale for professional product development:
o What professional product did you develop?
o Why did you choose this type of product?
o How does it align with your intervention?
o How will the product help improve outcomes?
o How will the product enhance the patient experience?
o How does the product improve a process related to quality, safety, and/or cost of care?
o How do relevant research, evidence, and best practices support your choice of professional product and approach?
Â· Explain ways in which leadership of people and processes was utilized while designing an intervention and implementation plan.
Â· Demonstrate process improvements in the quality, safety, or cost of care as a result of a direct clinical intervention and a developed professional product.

Â· Justify decisions related to developing a professional product with relevant research, evidence, and best practices.
Â· Communicate professionally in writing that is clear and logically organized, with correct grammar, spelling, and use of APA style.
Â· Length of submission: APA-style paper should be 3-4 pages of content plus title and reference pages. There is no length requirement for your professional product. The type of deliverable you choose will determine its length and format.
