  I would choose to utilize PowerPoint presentations and unit-level presentations as dissemination tactics. PowerPoint presentations provide the benefit of integrating many media types, which helps foster comprehension among learners with different backgrounds and abilities (Rusu, 2021). Presentations can facilitate open discussions and provide opportunities for direct engagement, which promotes the clarifying of concepts and the addressing of particular issues (Berman, 2019). Some obstacles, such as low attendance and technical glitches, can hinder the efficacy of the approaches. To alleviate the issue of low attendance, one effective strategy is to schedule meetings at times and locations that are convenient for participants. Additionally, offering incentives for attending the meetings could further increase the rate of participation. Likewise, creating additional hard copies of the presentation might help avoid technical problems.

           Unit-level presentations are particularly useful in healthcare settings, such as the emergency department. Unit presentations, such as start-of-shift huddles, facilitate the rapid sharing of vital information among staff, promoting a cooperative atmosphere for enhancing practice (Melnyk, 2018). Obstacles such as interruptions or missing staff members are relevant. Dissemination strategies I would be least inclined to use would be e-mails because they frequently go unnoticed or deleted due to the absence of personal connection and nonverbal signals found in in-person encounters (Vdovin, 2020). I would also stay away from pamphlets because of expenses related to printing and because they may fail to successfully attract the attention of the audience. These strategies lack interactivity and may not effectively engage the target audience. They are less inclined to facilitate meaningful dissemination of evidence-based information compared to more interactive methods like PowerPoints and unit presentations.

According to Melnyk and Fineout-Overholt (2023), dissemination is the process in which information is widely distributed or circulated. Dissemination of evidence-based practice is an important step in the research process. There are many ways to disseminate information and barriers that can occur when trying to disseminate evidence-based practice. Though it should be inherently easy to implement EBP (Evidence Based Practice), the correct environment needs to be present. To disseminate and translate evidence to practice, the culture needs to be one of inquiry, collaboration, and one where nurses are encouraged to continuously learn (Barria, 2023). Dissemination of information is necessary for professional growth (Barria, 2023). 

 Peer-reviewed journals, professional conferences, professional communities, hospital-based conferences are all excellent ways by which evidence-based practice can be disseminated to the healthcare community. These ways offer a wider range of information distribution (Hagan et al., 2017).  

Disseminating information can come in other forms that are smaller such as round-tables, posters, small group presentations, journal clubs, and of course through media (Melnyk & Fineout-Overholt, 2023). According to Barria (2023), there are difficulties, and barriers to conducting research, drafting articles, and publishing, which can hinder production of new knowledge and its dissemination. Due to inherent barriers, clinicians need to keep themselves accountable to stay up to date on the most available research that allows improved care (Barria, 2023). 

I feel choosing a form of dissemination greatly depends on the context of the information, and the audience it needs to be presented to. In my current role as an Intensive Care Nurse, the dissemination strategy I would be most inclined to utilize is a unit based/small group presentation or small group rounds (Melnyk & Fineout-Overholt, 2023). The reason I would choose this form of dissemination in my current role is due to the ability for there to be a discussion of the information as well as its intimacy (Melnyk & Fineout-Overholt, 2023). This gives the nurses a feeling of empowerment and inclusion for the nurses on the unit. Another reason I would choose this form of dissemination is the ability to get several shifts of nurses at their convenience as opposed to trying to coordinate a large mandatory meeting. A barrier to small presentations is that sometimes not everyone can attend, people can be missed; and this tactic keeps information restricted to those who are part of that unit only (Melnyk & Fineout-Overholt, 2023). This type of dissemination is not for widely spreading information. 

Another form of dissemination that I would utilize is disseminating evidence through journal clubs which can be either flexible and asynchronous or synchronous (Melnyk & Fineout-Overholt, 2023). Asynchronous is convenient for those receiving the information to weave into their personal and work schedules. Journal clubs, though they are individualized are also like small group meetings in that articles in the journal clubs are reviewed for applicability to clinical practice and online professional journals often have feedback features from readers (Melnyk & Fineout-Overholt, 2023). The barriers and or disadvantages to online journal clubs is that the way the information is presented may not be applicable for all learning styles, some users may encounter issues with internet connectivity, formatting is also less interactive than that of in person small groups (Melnyk & Fineout-Overholt, 2023).  

I would least likely use poster presentations, though posters can be visually interactive and useful, they do not have the same influence as a widely spread tactic such as a conference, committee, or podium presentation according to Melnyk & Fineout-Overholt, (2023).
