EBP Implementation Proposal Presentation

Recognize the dynamic relationship between nursing research evidence and its translation through EBP both as critical components of quality patient care and clinical decision-making.

Researching relevant literature (published research studies) in the development of your nursing research proposal (to generate new evidence) will provide a foundation for this assignment, creating a plan to translate best evidence into clinical practice.

Identify best evidence from established research in their area of interest from one of the published studies used for the literature review and create a plan utilizing key EBP principles and strategies for successful implementation of this evidence in a clinical setting.

Guidelines for Evidence Based Implementation Proposal Presentation

1. Identify an area of interest for a population need, educational initiative, practice problem, or clinical issue that requires improvement-develop a vision for change integrating best evidence into practice.
2. From the Research Study Summaries literature review select one best evidence-based research article in the area of clinical interest for proposed implementation.
3. Identify and utilize a conceptual EBP model for implementation that best fits the clinical situation/need.
4. Develop objective and strategies needed for engagement in the EBP process within the practice culture.
5. Identify barriers and strengths in evaluation of the practice environment’s culture and infrastructure.
6. Identify steps and related strategies for engagement in the practice environment to integrate evidence.
7. Develop a realistic timeline for implementation.
8. Identify a strategy for evaluation after the implementation of EBP.
9. Create a 15-minute presentation to colleagues outlining the clinical problem, current best evidence and strategies for implementation and evaluation.

10. Present this EBP Implementation Proposal to colleagues in a roundtable format on the assigned due date.
Roundtable format encourages discussion.

11. Encourage active audience colleague peer review, discussion, critique, and feedback to identify areas requiring further development.

12. Audience colleagues will offer the presenter scholarly critique with substantive feedback in contribution to the presenter’s proposal verbally in discussion during the presentation and a written feedback summary form will be provided to the presenter after the presentation. Verbal and written feedback will be used to assist in the further development of the implementation plan.

13. One week after the presentation, submit a one-page self -reflective statement which identifies what you have learned from this experience. Identify areas requiring further refinement based upon colleague feedback in the statement.

Sample solution

Dante Alighieri played a critical role in the literature world through his poem Divine Comedy that was written in the 14th century. The poem contains Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso. The Inferno is a description of the nine circles of torment that are found on the earth. It depicts the realms of the people that have gone against the spiritual values and who, instead, have chosen bestial appetite, violence, or fraud and malice. The nine circles of hell are limbo, lust, gluttony, greed and wrath. Others are heresy, violence, fraud, and treachery. The purpose of this paper is to examine the Dante’s Inferno in the perspective of its portrayal of God’s image and the justification of hell. 

In this epic poem, God is portrayed as a super being guilty of multiple weaknesses including being egotistic, unjust, and hypocritical. Dante, in this poem, depicts God as being more human than divine by challenging God’s omnipotence. Additionally, the manner in which Dante describes Hell is in full contradiction to the morals of God as written in the Bible. When god arranges Hell to flatter Himself, He commits egotism, a sin that is common among human beings (Cheney, 2016). The weakness is depicted in Limbo and on the Gate of Hell where, for instance, God sends those who do not worship Him to Hell. This implies that failure to worship Him is a sin.

God is also depicted as lacking justice in His actions thus removing the godly image. The injustice is portrayed by the manner in which the sodomites and opportunists are treated. The opportunists are subjected to banner chasing in their lives after death followed by being stung by insects and maggots. They are known to having done neither good nor bad during their lifetimes and, therefore, justice could have demanded that they be granted a neutral punishment having lived a neutral life. The sodomites are also punished unfairly by God when Brunetto Lattini is condemned to hell despite being a good leader (Babor, T. F., McGovern, T., & Robaina, K. (2017). While he commited sodomy, God chooses to ignore all the other good deeds that Brunetto did.

Finally, God is also portrayed as being hypocritical in His actions, a sin that further diminishes His godliness and makes Him more human. A case in point is when God condemns the sin of egotism and goes ahead to commit it repeatedly. Proverbs 29:23 states that “arrogance will bring your downfall, but if you are humble, you will be respected.” When Slattery condemns Dante’s human state as being weak, doubtful, and limited, he is proving God’s hypocrisy because He is also human (Verdicchio, 2015). The actions of God in Hell as portrayed by Dante are inconsistent with the Biblical literature. Both Dante and God are prone to making mistakes, something common among human beings thus making God more human.

To wrap it up, Dante portrays God is more human since He commits the same sins that humans commit: egotism, hypocrisy, and injustice. Hell is justified as being a destination for victims of the mistakes committed by God. The Hell is presented as being a totally different place as compared to what is written about it in the Bible. As a result, reading through the text gives an image of God who is prone to the very mistakes common to humans thus ripping Him off His lofty status of divine and, instead, making Him a mere human. Whether or not Dante did it intentionally is subject to debate but one thing is clear in the poem: the misconstrued notion of God is revealed to future generations.
