Assignment 2: Capstone Practicum Assignment: Phase 6: Dissemination Plan
In this module, you will combine all of the previous assignments together and add a new component called the Dissemination Plan.
Prepare a 1- to 2-page paper for the dissemination portion of your final practicum assignment paper where you will communicate the findings of your research. The dissemination process involves developing a final presentation and presenting those findings to the target audience. Presenting and publishing findings helps to advance the knowledge of a discipline. If a researcher fails to disseminate findings, the time, data, knowledge, and funding spent on the research are wasted. Ultimately, failure to disseminate findings does not allow for the advancement of the nursing profession.
Dissemination: Design an action plan for communicating the proposal to your health care organization.
Components of a Dissemination Plan: Developing a dissemination plan will facilitate the translation of your research into practice.
Your dissemination plan will include six major elements:
- Research findings and products—What is going to be disseminated?
- End users—Who will apply it in practice?
- Dissemination work plan—Where will you start?
- Dissemination partners—With whom (individuals, organizations, or networks) will you partner to reach end users?
- Communication—How will you convey the research outcomes?
- Evaluation—How will you determine if your dissemination plan worked?
Reflect on your selected issue and identify areas where you might need additional professional development to better your understanding of the selected area.
Using evidence from the literature, explain where and how you can increase your knowledge and skills in that area.
Name your Microsoft Word document AU_NUR408_M6_A2_LastName_FirstInitial_Phase 6.doc.
Submit your Microsoft Word document to the Submissions Area by the due date assigned.
