NRS-493- PEER RESPONSES
Describe one internal and one external method for the dissemination of your evidence-based change proposal. For example, an internal method may be the hospital board, and an external method may be a professional nursing organization. Discuss why it is important to report your change proposal to both of these groups. How will your communication strategies change for each group?

Presenting my evidence-based change plan to important stakeholders, such as hospital executives, department heads, and nursing staff, may be one internal strategy for spreading the word about it. This approach aims to get the approval and buy-in of people who will be in charge of putting the change into action. To ensure everyone is aware of the suggested change and knows how it would help patients, presentations might be made at staff meetings, grand rounds, or other pertinent venues (Nilsen et al., 2020).
One way to promote my change proposal externally is to publish it in relevant nursing publications or to deliver it at professional nursing conferences. These strategies would be aimed at a broader audience outside the hospital setting, such as other medical professionals, academics, and legislators. By disclosing the results in a public forum, other healthcare practitioners can learn the benefits of implementing this change in their practices. Legislators may consider incorporating the intervention into their laws and regulations (Kruk, et al., 2018).
To promote universal adoption and approval, it is crucial to inform internal and external groups about the change proposal. Internal groups will be in charge of implementing the change, and outside organizations can aid in spreading the word about the intervention and encourage its use in other healthcare settings. Each group may have different communication tactics, with internal communications concentrating more on operational matters like training and implementation. External contacts may focus more on the study and supporting data for the intervention. Effective communication that stresses the advantages of the suggested change will be essential for distribution in both situations (Kruk, et al., 2018).

Dissemination is an important component of translation of evidence because if the translation is not disseminated, then no change in care will occur and innovations will not be adopted. Dissemination is the communication of clinical, research, and theoretical findings for the purpose of transitioning new knowledge to the point of care (White et al., 2019). It is through effective dissemination strategies that acquired knowledge is shared, redundancies in problem solving are eliminated, and further innovations are inspired. Translating research evidence to clinical practice is essential to safe, transparent, effective and efficient healthcare provision and meeting the expectations of patients, families and society. A research study is not complete until the study findings have been disseminated via presentations at professional forums and published in a peer‐reviewed journal and where appropriate recommendations regarding how the research findings could be translated into clinical practice are made (Curtis et al., 2017).
The hospital board will be my internal method of dissemination of EBP proposals . Hospital board essentially comprises the employees of the health organization, such as nurses, physicians and other professionals involved in patient care. The most appropriate method to disseminate in the hospital board will be face to face. The approach facilitates interaction and instant feedback especially during questioning sessions. Presentation of my evidence based results facilitate sharing of the knowledge and information in the nursing fraternity. This would enhance decision making capability among the group members involved in nursing practice and promote patient outcomes. Furthermore, disseminating the results will help to raise constructive criticism of the results, thus getting an opportunity to improve the intervention. The external method of dissemination would be through posters, presentations, and papers at organizational level where the result of the proposal can be shared with other organizations (Dudely- Brown, 2019). Journal club, and conferences can also can be used to disseminate the information externally.
