Many factors influence how successfully an EBP Project is implemented and evaluated. As noted in this week’s Learning Resources, using a translation framework can facilitate effective implementation and the evaluation of outcomes.
For this assignment you will prepare a scholarly product that reports the results and implications of your project to designed audience. The scholarly product for dissemination reports the results and implications of your project to a specified audience. Your scholarly product may be in the form of a project summary and evaluation report, poster presentation, program evaluation report, or a media or technology-based deliverable.
To prepare for this week’s section of Application 5:
- Reflect on the definitions and criteria for scholarship presented in the Learning Resources and in your weekly discussions.
- Consider AACN’s definition of scholarship and their vision of the role of the DNP-prepared nurse in furthering nursing scholarship.
The full Application 5 is due by Tuesday 11/06/18 of this week. Instructions for how to prepare for previous sections of this Application have been provided in Weeks 9 and 10
