Discussion: developing a culture of evidence-based practice,nurs | NURS 6052 – Essentials of Evidence-Based Practice | Walden University
Disseminating EBP results can be a critical aspect of advancing the field and ensuring that best practices are widely adopted. There are many different strategies for disseminating EBP, each with its own advantages and limitations. Here are two strategies that I would be most inclined to use and why:
- Poster Presentations: I would be inclined to use poster presentations as a dissemination strategy because they offer a visually engaging way to share information and engage with audiences in a more personal setting. Poster presentations can be highly interactive, allowing for direct questions and discussions with attendees. They can also be less formal than other types of presentations, making them a good choice for less formal events.
- Peer-Reviewed Journal Publications: I would also be inclined to use peer-reviewed journal publications as a dissemination strategy. This is because publication in a peer-reviewed journal is considered a gold standard in terms of quality and credibility. Publishing in a peer-reviewed journal provides an opportunity to have the research results widely disseminated and contributes to the body of evidence-based knowledge in the field.
I would be least inclined to use unit-level or organizational-level presentations as a dissemination strategy. This is because these presentations may only be seen by a small number of individuals, limiting the impact and dissemination of the results.
Barriers I might encounter when using the dissemination strategies I am most inclined to use include:
- Time constraints: Preparing a poster presentation or manuscript for peer-reviewed publication can be time-consuming. Balancing the time commitment with other work responsibilities can be a challenge.
- Competition for attention: Poster presentations and journal publications are both highly competitive, and the competition for attention can be intense. It is important to ensure that the information being presented is of high quality and relevant to the audience to be successful.
To overcome these barriers, I would prioritize my time and seek out opportunities to collaborate with colleagues who have complementary skills and expertise. I would also invest time in preparing high-quality presentations and manuscripts that are relevant, well-researched, and have a clear impact on the field. Additionally, I would look for opportunities to network and connect with others in the field to increase the visibility of my work and build relationships with other EBP practitioners.
