Dissemination of EBP and research, such as presenting results at a
conference or writing an article for a journal, is an important part
of professional practice. Identify one professional journal and one
nursing or health care conference where you might present your
project. Discuss why each of your choices is the best option for you
to disseminate your new knowledge.

One of the professional journals where I would present my project in
the form of an article is AJIC: American Journal of Infection
Control. Since my topic on use of hand hygiene monitoring badges
to improve hand hygiene compliance in the organization deals with
infection control in the organization, I feel that this journal would
be most appropriate to publish my article. The overall goal of
improving hand hygiene compliance in the hospital is to reduce
hospital-acquired infections. According to McCalla, Reilly,
Thomas, and Mc. Spedon-Rai (2017), disseminating significant results
can improve the health of patients and have a significant impact on
the lives of patients across the nations and internationally through
translation of research into clinical practice. The AJIC is a
journal has over 15,000 members and various direct infection
prevention programs that improve the patient safety in hospitals and
other healthcare facilities.

The Association for Professionals in Infection Control and
Epidemiology (APIC) hosts annual conferences that include hand hygiene
compliance improvement conferences for healthcare professionals.
I would love to present my project on the use of hand hygiene monitors
to improve hand hygiene compliance and decrease the rates of
hospital-acquired infections at that conference. Upon contacting
the organization, I was notified that I would have to submit my
project to the approval board at the APIC, and then a special
committee will review my work and make a decision on whether or not I
can be a guest speaker at the next conference. It was
fascinating to learn about various methods of dissemination of the
results of the studies that healthcare professionals and researchers conduct.

Variety of methods are available for the broadcasting research
findings, the most common are publications in biomedical
journals and presentations at professional meetings or
conferences. These meetings are often attended by leaders in the
field, who are more likely to be early adopters of research into practice.

For research results to reach the widest possible audience and
be available to practitioners not just today but permanently, they
must be published in a journal. The American Journal of
is the oldest and most honored broad-based nursing
journal in the world. Peer reviewed and evidence-based, and it is
considered the profession’s best journal.
AJN welcomes proposals of evidence-
based clinical application papers, descriptions of best clinical
practices and original research and ranks twenty-third among the
116 nursing journals. Publishing a journal in AJN will give extended
reach to the topic and the research in the nursing community.(AJN 2018).

A conference I would like to present my research paper is 21st
Global Nursing Education Conference in 2019 at Orlando, USA with a
theme “Current Challenges and Innovations in Nursing
Education”. This conference brings together individuals who
have an interest in Nursing Education from practice, development and
research. This will be a great opportunity to present the newly
developed protocols for CAUTI prevention. Best platform to share
knowledge, achievement and excel in relationships that broadcast a
greater Nursing line. (CSE 2018)

Opted Professional Journal

might choose any popular magazine for publishing my research. For
instance” “Nursing Research and Practice” journal.
This journal is majority for publishing the nursing practices and
researches. In addition, this journal has open access, which will
make the project available to a wide range of
populace. (Nursing Research and Practice, n.d.)

reason to select a magazine for publishing my research is that the
majority of the entire columns of magazines are read by people. The
reason for it is that magazines are not too much large in pages as
well as people also give special time to read the magazines.
However, people do not read newspapers or books completely. The
reason for it is the large size of newspapers and books. Therefore,
I consider peer-reviewed and open-source magazine as best choice to
publish my research project.

Opted Healthcare Conference

might present my project in the “World Nursing and Health Care
Conference” that is being organized in Stockholm, Sweden by
“Thinkers hub”, within 12 to 14 June of year 2017. I
might opt for this conference because of two major reasons.
Initially, it is being organized in the universal venues to
construct a collective association among the dissimilar entities to
emphasize and work for the mutual target of making a sustainable
globe. Secondly. Stockholm is universally identified as one among
the most inventive and knowledge-intensive areas in universe and a
top provider of products and solutions in vital segments like ICT,
Cleantech, and Life Science. Consequently, this conference will be
attended by great leaders, scientists, health care specialists, and
number of other popular and successful universal entities. This
conference will give me a great chance to present my project at the
universal scale and in front of the experts. (Hub, n.d.)

Recently there has been a great movement in involving nurses in
decision-making in various healthcare organizations that has prompted
employers to seek a larger percentage of employees who have furthered
their education and earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree (
). As healthcare evolves to meet changing market dynamics,
evidence-based practice in nursing, which is taught in baccalaureate
programs, has become a key component in improving patient care and
outcomes. Therefore, all BSN-trained nurses have a great amount
of benefits, such as enhanced training and skill development in
critical thinking, leadership and evidence-based practice. There
is also a great competition among healthcare organizations to seek
Magnet or Pathway to Excellence designation from the American Nurses
Credentialing Center to distinguish themselves from the competition.
This designation helps organizations demonstrate a level of commitment
to the professional practice of nursing and standards that improve
nurse satisfaction and enhance business growth. These
organizations include in their standards that evidence-based practice
in nursing is essential to the organization. Hospitals
increasingly are asking nursing staff to incorporate innovations that
improve healthcare operations. In addition, hospitals that employ
students pursuing masters’ and doctoral degrees in nursing
provide opportunities to complete research-based coursework that can
aid with hospital operations. Some hospitals in critical areas offer
financial incentives to nurses who advance their education and perform
research and community service. Two ways that I will continue to
integrate evidence into practice is by reading various scholarly
journals that include new research studies that can lead to
significant quality improvement in my organization. Attending
conferences on evidence-based practices in hospitals will be another
way to integrate evidence into practice. During individual
performance evaluations, I can ask the employees for suggestions on
various practices that they would like to see changed or improved in
the facility. According to Delgado and Mitchell
(2016), an effective leader can engage others through teamwork,
personal influence, and management of performance expectations.
I would find various ways to engage my coworkers into making
suggestions and looking for ways to improve the delivery of patient
care with use of evidence-based research.

One of the challenges that I can predict is the lack of engagement
from my coworkers. As a nursing leader I will create a
performance improvement plan to give the staff members a defined goal
and action plan, as well as, to help the individual succeed with
establishing consequences for failure to meet and sustain the improved
performance (Bainbridge, 2016). These performance improvement
plans will provide the team members with opportunities to succeed in
translating research into practice. I will use these plans to
recognize specific skills in employees to assign them particular
tasks. I feel that his BSN program provided me various
competencies and skills that will allow me to engage others and
translate research into practice to improve the delivery of patient care.

Path # 1:


do cause a better patient outcomes, an increased patient safety
hence an improved quality of life. EBP usually does do strives to
standardizing practices that does do deliver more outcomes hence
treatments with improved chances of success but it does do lies in
research that usually provides a reliable information that is about
treatments. EBP also decreased health care costs plus does do reduce
the medical complications that is across a variety of clinical


based practice u is usually time consuming, usually there is no
enough evidence to supporting the change, there is a problem of the
research language, there is lack of resources that is to
implementation, the clinical research usually does not give
certainty when required, usually some of the given findings that is
of clinical research usually cannot be applied to each patients,
plus evidence-based practice does do remove responsibility that is
for decision making that is from usually the individual nurses.
