Purpose The purpose of this PowerPoint assignment is to promote evidence-based practice within

the nursing profession. The assignment provides the opportunity to examine barriers to EBP,

facilitators for EBP, ranking system for the level of evidence, and identify a change theory

framework that can guide implementation of evidence into practice. The student will review

the literature for current evidence to ensure up-to-date nursing practice.

Course Outcomes

This assignment enables the student to meet the following course outcomes:

1. Describe evidence-based practice (EBP) and its foundational concepts. (PO1)

7. Implement best practice to the clinical problem including consideration of the

      nursing metaparadigm and nursing leadership. (PO6)

8. Evaluate current practice and policies related to current evidence. (PO1, PO6)

Assignment Total Points This PowerPoint assignment is worth a total of 200 points.

Assignment In this assignment, the student will examine evidence-based practice and develop a

PowerPoint presentation that includes an introduction, barriers to EBP, facilitators

for EBP, ranking system for the level of evidence, and a change theory framework that

can guide implementation of evidence into practice, as well as supporting literature.

Guidelines for Content

1. Create a PowerPoint presentation using Microsoft PowerPoint.

2. Develop the following slides for your PowerPoint presentation.

     a. Introduction (1-2 slides)

     c. Identify Two Facilitators of Evidenced-Based Practice (2 slides)

          • Identify two categories of facilitators that promote evidence-based practice

              and place on one slide. (1 slide)

          • Provide two examples of how they can facilitate EBP and place examples on

               one slide. (1 slide)

      d. Identify the 7 Levels of Evidence of the Ranking System to classify Evidence and

            briefly state what is important about each level. (3-7 slides)

      e. From the list below, select one of the change theories that can guide systematic

           implementation of EBP and identify the steps/phases/stages of the change theory.

           (1-2 slides)

                     1) Lewin’s Theory of Planned Change

                     2) Lippitt’s Phases of Change Theory

                     3) Rogers’s Diffusion of Innovations Theory

      f. From the articles listed below, select the article that matches your change theory

          you selected in Step 2 e. above and:

                      1) identify the outcome of the article and

                      2) briefly state how the article used the theory. (2 slides)

          (Each full article is available under Week 5 Module.)
