Dissemination is the targeted distribution of information and intervention materials to a specific public health or clinical practice audience. Dissemination is vital in healthcare because the purpose of dissemination is to spread knowledge and the associated evidence-based interventions on a wide scale within or across geographic locations, practice settings, or social or other networks of end-users such as patients and health care providers (AHRQ, 2012).
There are different ways dissemination is possible from writing articles in journals or presenting the topic in front of higher authorities or policymakers. The writer prefers to present the change project in the American Journal of Infection Control (AJIC), a popular journal in America that handles infection-related topics. AJIC covers key topics and issues in infection control and epidemiology. Infection control professionals, including physicians, nurses, and epidemiologists, rely on AJIC for peer-reviewed articles covering clinical topics as well as original research (AJIC, 2022). The writer believes that this article reminds the health care professionals of the current infection control practices in mental health facilities and the need for a change to provide quality care to the mentally disabled population. At the same time, the writer would present the topic during the conference conducted in the writer’s facility, where all the heads of the departments meet together once a month to assess the progress in health care and find any issues in providing high-quality care to the patients. The writer believes that by disseminating this vital information, the infection control practices in mental health facilities will be improved in the future.
Dissemination of EBP and research, such as presenting results at a conference or writing an article for a journal, is an important part of professional practice. Identify one professional journal and one nursing or health care conference where you might present your project. Discuss why each of your choices is the best option for you to disseminate your new knowledge.
