The collection of evidence is an activity that occurs with an endgame in mind. For example, law enforcement professionals collect evidence to support a decision to charge those accused of criminal activity. Similarly, evidence-based healthcare practitioners collect evidence to support decisions in pursuit of specific healthcare outcomes.

In this Assignment, you will identify an issue or opportunity for change within your healthcare organization and propose an idea for a change in practice supported by an EBP approach.

To Prepare:

  • Reflect on the four peer-reviewed articles you critically appraised in Module 4, related to your clinical topic of interest and PICOT.
  • Reflect on your current healthcare organization and think about potential opportunities for evidence-based change, using your topic of interest and PICOT as the basis for your reflection.
  • Consider the best method of disseminating the results of your presentation to an audience.

The Assignment: (Evidence-Based Project)

Part 4: Recommending an Evidence-Based Practice Change

Create an 8- to 9-slide narrated PowerPoint presentation in which you do the following:

  • Briefly describe your healthcare organization, including its culture and readiness for change. (You may opt to keep various elements of this anonymous, such as your company name.)
  • Describe the current problem or opportunity for change. Include in this description the circumstances surrounding the need for change, the scope of the issue, the stakeholders involved, and the risks associated with change implementation in general.
  • Propose an evidence-based idea for a change in practice using an EBP approach to decision making. Note that you may find further research needs to be conducted if sufficient evidence is not discovered.
  • Describe your plan for knowledge transfer of this change, including knowledge creation, dissemination, and organizational adoption and implementation.
  • Explain how you would disseminate the results of your project to an audience. Provide a rationale for why you selected this dissemination strategy.
  • Describe the measurable outcomes you hope to achieve with the implementation of this evidence-based change.
  • Be sure to provide APA citations of the supporting evidence-based peer reviewed articles you selected to support your thinking.
  • Add a lessons learned section that includes the following:
    • A summary of the critical appraisal of the peer-reviewed articles you previously submitted
    • An explanation about what you learned from completing the Evaluation Table within the Critical Appraisal Tool Worksheet Template (1-3 slides)      Evidence-based practice is essential in providing quality care, promotes patient outcomes and quality of life. Nurses should standardize the use of evidence-based practice to maximize their performance. Evidence dissemination is vital because it enhances nurse’s awareness and enables them to implement evidence-based practice.

      Most Inclined Dissemination Strategies

      The dissemination of evidence-based practice aims to enhance and encourage the spread of information concerning evidence-based interventions to improve patient outcomes (Melnyk, & Fineout-Overholt, 2018). The first strategy that I will utilize in disseminating evidence-based practice information is user-friendly manuals and guidelines. Examples of manuals and procedures include practice guidelines and treatment manuals provided to all individuals in the organization. I will create policies and manuals that are friendly to the target group. Similarly, evidence-based treatment manuals serve different purposes. The information contained in different practice guidelines and manuals can be learned quickly. Hence there is no need to use a lot of resources in hiring experts to implement the programs.

      The second strategy that will be used to disseminate evidence-based practice is electronic poster presentation. Adapting the use of electronic poster presentation is a way to utilize space and is more economical “green” (Betz, Smith, Melnyk & Tessa, 2018). The electronic poster presentation is displayed on a large computer screen. This type of dissemination can be instituted in the entire health care facility on computers in different sections that can reach wider onlookers. Using electronic poster presentation is vital because it is economical and make use of available space. It has been proved that electronic poster presentation results in the effective dissemination of evidence-based practice. My organization has recently inaugurated the service of electronic poster presentations due to its effectiveness.

      Least Inclined Dissemination Strategy

      The dissemination strategies that I would least incline to are online modules and workshops. Online modules lack feedback from the audience. For instance, the nurses are assigned education modules and given a check box to tick yes or no if they have read the modules. Additionally, the nurses can mark the check box to indicate that they have read the information while they haven’t. In my opinion, the workshop’s effectiveness will depend in attendance and is limited to the length of time of the workshop.

      Barriers that may be Encountered

      There are different barriers that I may encounter while utilizing the dissemination strategies that I am most inclined to. I find that electronic poster presentation lacks sufficient space for information. Another barrier could be a lack of interest from the medical staff. Most human beings are resistant to change that needs to be adopted. Developing attractive and user-friendly manuals should assist in getting the attention of the medical staff.


      In conclusion, all medical experts should always use evidence-based practice to enhance patients’ outcomes and quality of life. Dissemination of evidence-based practice enhances and encourages the spread of information concerning evidence-based interventions to improve patients’ outcomes. In addition, the use of evidence-based practice interventions reduces medical costs. The utilization of EBP to achieve the best outcomes are linked to the performance of nurses, therefore, enhancing and maximizing the nurse’s performance is crucial (Gallagher-Ford, Buck, & Melnyk, 2018).
