Teamwork can assure that others in your organization understand the relevancy and importance of integrating genomics into practice, and how you plan to get there.
There are a minimum of seven areas to consider in establishing an action plan for the integration of genetics and genomics into policy and practice. It is recommended the entire scope of nursing colleagues including clinical staff, clinical leaders, policy systems, researchers, educators, and hospital administrators are considered. Realize strategic partnerships are required to assure success of the Plan.

It is valuable to have the team update progress made and challenges encountered on the Action Plan at least quarterly. This can be achieved by adding a few extra columns on the Action Plan to document an Activities Update since the last report and Reviewer Comments to document any recommended changes. The Reviewer Comments column allows documentation of any issues encountered, problem solving, modifications made to goals or timeline, and attainment of goals. Discussion with Leadership about the Action Plan updates can facilitate ongoing support, assure that everyone is in agreement with plans, knows when success is achieved, or can problem solve before issues create bottlenecks.
