Stakeholder involvement refers to the process of attracting and involving individuals, groups, and organizations that may be influenced or impacted by a project. Investors, workers, consumers, suppliers, communities, governments, and trade groups are all examples of stakeholders. Internal and external stakeholders might make up an entity’s stakeholders. Their assistance is essential since they supply the essential resources, skills, and expertise for the project’s implementation. Furthermore, they have an impact on public perceptions of expected change. It is critical to tell stakeholders about the project through interactive forums in order to get their support (Hall, 2020). The more you engage and involve stakeholders in your project, the more you’ll be able to mitigate and expose hazards.
For my change project of patient safety among patients diagnosed with an eating disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder, it is essential to engage stakeholders. Since these patients require long-term care support from patients, family members, social worker, case manager, psychiatrist, and therapist is vital for the smooth transition of care during step up and step down of treatment from partial and outpatient program to inpatient care and vice versa. I will secure that support with stakeholders by building a good rapport with them and encouraging active involvement in a project from all of them, and listening to their feedback to make this project successful with necessary changes. Patients, physicians, employers, insurance companies, pharmaceutical companies, and the government are all key players in the healthcare system. Patients are the recipients of medical treatment, while physicians offer it. Psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, social workers, and other health professionals and technicians are all trained in academic institutions. Psychiatrists, psychologists, general practitioners, nurses, occupational therapists, and social workers all belong to professional societies.

Stakeholder support is needed for a successful project implementation. Internal stakeholders have company knowledgeable of where or who to refer proposal or change of proposal. External stakeholders do the same but in a higher level, their role is to help to ensure guidelines that are acceptable and feasible to community users. Also, stakeholders ensure that impartiality, human rights are not violated at any level, adopt policy, and practice. According to Petkovic, Tugwell. (2020), following previous responsibilities lead to improved adherence to treatments, practices recommended, and long-term successful program.
For my changer project about the steps that have been done to reduce medical errors that lead to deaths includes medication educations and patient safety. Stakeholders push for higher employment education requirements like BSN, CPR, and ACLS. Stakeholders provide enough evidence that prove that nurses with higher education are less likely to put patients in danger due to medical errors.
