Implementingthe Plan, Including Analysis and Publication


Inmy opinion, I believe Gallagher-Ford et al. (2011) managed to succeedbecause of a proper choice of the EBP model. The project wasproperly-organized right from the beginning because the researchersappear to be aware of the accomplishments. It is for this reason thatthe project was a success regardless of the fact that its fullimplementation did not take more than two units(Fairman, Rowe, Hassmiller &amp Shalala, 2011).


Theproject conducted by Gallagher-Ford et al. (2011) was a feasibilitystudy. It was not a pilot or intervention test because of the mannerin which it was conducted. As clearly explained in the video, thereis a big difference between the pilot, feasibility, and test(Meridian Sociology, 2013). Although they all focus on EBP, each ofthese models differs in their design and implementation (Flick,2015).


“Applicationof EBP models is intended to break down the complexity of thechallenge of translating evidence into clinical practice” (Schafferet al., 2013). After keenly going through the article, I found outthat the researchers used the Johns Hopkins Nursing EBP Model. Personally, I prefer the feasibility model to others because it istranslates research evidence into clinical practice(StrategicTechGroup, 2009). “Evidence-based practice (EBP) is aproblem-solving approach to the delivery of health care thatintegrates the best evidence from studies and patient care data withclinician expertise and patient preferences and values”(Gallagher-Ford et al., 2011). When doing any such studies, I willhave to opt for the John Hopkins Nursing EBP model because of manyreasons. Most importantly, the feasibility model enables me toconduct a well-organized EBP project that can be relied upon toprovide insightful information to the users (Fairman,Rowe, Hassmiller &amp Shalala, 2011).The EBP projects should be done using the model because it can helpin realizing the satisfaction of the patients and the health staff. Therefore, just like these experts, I will not hesitate to emulatethe example they have applied in their project.


Manysources enable the clinicians to get updated evidence that is used intheir day-to-day practice. Some of the most common sources areconferences and journals. The clinicians prefer conference because itpresents an opportunity to meet different scholars. When the scholarscome together, they use the platform to share the research work thatthey have been doing for some time. Therefore, apart from listeningto the presentations, clinicians can use the chance to ask questionsand seek for further clarifications. The same benefit is got from thejournals which publish peer reviewed and authoritative academic works(Fairman, Rowe, Hassmiller &amp Shalala, 2011).Therefore, I was not surprised to find out that these resources arestill in use by the clinicians. Their proper usage can help inupdating knowledge that can help in improving the quality of servicesrendered by the clinicians.


Asa DNP student committed to the fight against cancer in the society, Iwould prefer to collaborate with the National Association ofPediatric Nurse Practitioners (NAPNAP) and National Organization ofNurse Practitioner Faculties (NONPF). These are the onlyorganizations with which I will collaborate. I am impressed with thegood job they have been doing in addressing various health issuesaffecting the society. However, to ensure that my research work oncancer diseases are effectively disseminated to other stakeholders, Iwould have to write sound, well-researched and authoritative articlesand publish in their respective journals(DiCenso Cullum &amp Ciliska, 2011).For NAPNAP, I will use the NAPNAP conferences and the Journal ofPediatric Care (http://www.jpedhc.org/). For NONPF, I will use NONPFpublications (http://www.nonpf.org/?13). The use of these journalsand conferences will enable me to disseminate my research workthroughout the state and the nation to the readers, experts andpolicy-makers to make a good use of my findings.
