Evidence-based practice is an important part of professional nursing and is crucial for healthcare providers for results of better patient outcomes and higher levels of nursing autonomy (Newhouse, Dearholt, Poe, Pugh, & White, 2007). Using evidence-based practice within an organization requires infrastructure, nursing leadership, and human and material resources (Newhouse et al., 2007). For the dissemination of evidence-based practice, I would use strategies of using a poster presentation at a unit-level for a smaller scale dissemination and a clinical program workshop at an organizational level for a larger scale dissemination.
The purpose of using a clinical program workshop is to disseminate, implement, and sustain findings of clinical trials in addition to bridging the gap between evidence, practice, and policy (Tuzzi et al., 2019). The workshop can include interactive strategies to help individuals retain information. The workshop will include keynotes to address a presentation on the evidence-based practice that needs to be implemented. After the evidence-based practice is pitched, participants have a chance to discuss their questions and their perspectives on what they have learned during the workshop. The second method is a communication poster. A well-developed evidence-based practice poster is a valuable communication tool (Williams & Cullen, 2016).
There are barriers associated with dissemination strategies. Presenters often find the official request for posters to lack guidelines or specific standardized instructions on information that needs to be included (Williams et al., 2016). This is a barrier for using posters as a form of communication. Another barrier is planning scholarly workshops so that everyone within the organization can attend. Using strategies to overcome these barriers such as implementing a planning team and creating specific guidelines will ensure that the communication for evidence-based practice is received and creates better patient outcomes.
