Developing a Culture of Evidence-Based Practice I would be more inclined to use
Developing a Culture of Evidence-Based Practice I would be more inclined to use the informational brochure because this type of information is what people most often read. By making it clear and concise and providing appropriate resources, I can ensure that this information reaches its intended audience. The other strategy I would consider is the Group Strategy, which utilizes interpersonal skills but also looks at getting members of the organization, family, and friends to help spread awareness about my activities, such as creating posters or handing out flyers at local events. Furthermore, I could use poster sessions, which draw the attention of community members to the posters and allow them to ask questions. The first strategy I would be less inclined to disseminate evidence-based practice (EBP) with is using social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter because they require a lot of time and energy that people who would be helping me in the project would not be willing to spend, thus, making me do a lot of work. Furthermore, Johannsson and Selak (2020) observe that social media sites are known for being slow and poorly designed so that the audience will have difficulties navigating them. The second strategy is publishing a research article in a refereed journal or conference. This is because publishing in journals requires a lot of time and money, which I think, would not get by most people. Barriers to Dissemination Barriers to disseminating an evidence-based practice guideline may include communicating the focus and value of a practice to a broad audience, finding evidence that is clear, objective, and consistently applied across settings, and building key relationships with relevant stakeholders, particularly for the group strategy (Gitlin et al., 2020). For example, if too much of my presentation is repetitive and becomes boring, it will be harder to retain interest. Second, excessive detail can also make it difficult for others to understand. To overcome these barriers, the presentation should be clear to the audience. Intense lighting and background are essential to highlight the main points. Furthermore, the posters and brochures should be concise in the message conveyed, without any filler words or unnecessary details. Building key relationships entails meeting the group to help with the project and discussing the details with them (Melnyk & Fineout-Overholt, 2018). References Gitlin, L. N., Baier, R.
