implementation

 [im″plĕ-men-ta´shun]
putting an instrument or plan into action. Implementation as a phase of the nursing process involves putting the plan of care (nursing interventions) into effect. The nurse coordinates her activities with those of others responsible for contributing to patient care and delegates responsibility to other professional and technical care-givers as appropriate. During implementation the care plan is tested for effectiveness. Nursing interventions may not have had the desired effect, or a change in the patient's condition may present more critical problems that have a higher priority, thus requiring revision of the plan and different interventions.
