Please include citations and matching references to support your discussion. How will you address issues that could have potentially occurred, such as:

o   Not all participants (staff and/or patients) attended as planned and some staff were out sick.  How will you follow up with them? (EMAIL, CALL, or whatever you find pertinent)

o   There are float nurses and traveler nurses on the unit. How will this impact your project plan? If this does not apply to your project please discuss another impact that has affected your implementation plan? ** it doesn’t apply to my project so you can use: Potential barriers include participants forgetting to input their data to the tracking app and lack of reliable mobile access. These can be mitigated with training and support and weekly reminders to participants. access to healthy food or any other barrier that a patient will have to lose weight)

o   Internet speed, access to the Fitbit app, and bandwidth are causing problems with virtual meetings you have set up. What is your backup plan? **the clinic will provide a smartphone for a patient who don’t have it to use during the project duration. The fitbit app is free to download. Also I will educatient patients in the project on the use of it).
