Evidence base practice (EBP) is a proactive methodology to improving patient care. Nurses are now called upon to research, identify and analyze practice problems so that questions can be answered on how to deliver care. Therefore, the translation of research into practice require strategies such as protocol and guideline to disseminate EBP within an organization (Yoder-Wise, 2015). By researching barriers to breastfeeding in the neonatal intensive care (NICU), policy changes are noted to be indicated. The objective of this Dissemination Plan is to identify and organize the activities to be performed in order to promote breastfeeding in the NICU to the key stakeholder and the greater community. Strategy for disseminating the results to the …show more content…
It is crucial to the nursing profession to be able to contribute and communicate knowledge to nurses, policy makers, and interdisciplinary colleagues through the media, presentations, seminars and conferences (Hanrahan, Marlow, Aldrich, & Hiatt, 2010). Through these different dissemination strategies, barriers that prevent mothers from breastfeeding or providing breast milk to their premature infants can be discuss. Therefore, when policies and procedure are in place, stakeholders who are part of NICU newborns care are educated and trained on the initiative’s policies and procedures. NICU nurses, neonatologists, and neonatal nurse practitioners, NICU nutritionist, are the key stakeholders in this project. Strategies to disseminate an educational and training plan to stakeholders includes a 4 hour staff educational course conducted by a Lactation Consultant. Each staff member will have 2 week to complete the educational course which will take place twice a shift for 2 weeks to give all staff opportunity to attend. Also to keep staff abreast of information, tip sheet will be created and placed it in multiple areas such as the charge office, clerk desk, and physician station for staff review (Bernaix, Schmidt, Arrizola, Iovinelli, & Medina-Poelinez,

After the Back to Sleep campaign started, it was found that over 98% of nurses in the training program intended to place infants in a back-only sleeping position (Price, Gardner, Hillman, Schenk, & Warren, 2008). Having nurses up to date on safety standards allows them to teach new families proper information they need to know for infant safety before being discharged from the hospital. All parents should ensure that any caregiver looking after their newborn knows that putting the baby down in the supine position to sleep is the safest for all children under one year of age (Meadows-Oliver, 2013). Many young and new caregivers are not able to receive proper information prior to their newborn being born so it is important to get in as much teaching as possible before they get go

My intended audience is for new mothers who are conflicted with the question of: to breastfeed, or not to breastfeed? Controversy surrounds the concept of breastfeeding, as some mothers claim it is the only reasonable option, while others have turned to formula-feeding for various reasons. Both sides have differing opinions on the health benefits and drawbacks, which should be took into consideration when deciding the best choice for an infant. It should be noted that many mothers who choose formula over breast milk are criticized and shamed, which can make the decision difficult.
Once an individual or community is aware of a situation in which a change would improve the health care environment, there are many ways to get others interested and involved in the issue in order to affect policy change. Public meetings are a good avenue to introduce the problem and proposed solutions. Also, encouraging lobby decisions makers for health policy changes and working with the media to bring attention to the problem can prove to be very advantageous. Nurses can join organized professional associations that have more resources; these groups are able to strategize and bring nursing perspective’s to health policy makers more effectively than an individual nurse. Additionally, these organizations offer ways for their members to
