MODULE 4TOPIC: Evidence-Based Practice Proposal – Section D: Change ModelRoger’s diffusion of innovation theory is a particularly good theoretical framework to apply to an EBP project. However, students may also choose to use change models, such as Duck’s change curve model or the transtheoretical model of behavioral change. Other conceptual models, such as a utilization model (Stetler’s model) and EBP models (the Iowa model and ARCC model) can also be used as a framework for applying your evidence-based proposal in clinical practice. Apply one of the above models and carry your implementation through each of the stages, phases, or steps identified in the chosen model.In 500-750 words (not including the title page and references page), discuss applying one of the change models to the implementation plan:Identify the selected model or theoretical framework      and discuss its relevance to your project.Discuss each of the stages in the change      model/framework.Describe how you would apply each stage in your      proposed implementation.In addition, create a conceptual model of the project.
