Evidence Based Practice Poster And Presentation

Nurs 363 : Evidence Based Practice Poster 

and Presentation.  

Objective:  To help nursing students become accustomed to searching the literature for evidence that supports nursing practice, and to polish poster creation and presentation skills.

Task:  You are an experienced nurse who just signed a contract for a staff position at Passaway General Hospital.  On your first month at work, you notice a few questionable nursing practices that you learned to do differently at your previous place of employment.  As a BSN-prepared nurse, your unit manager has asked you to review the best evidence on the topic and create an A/V poster presentation for your colleagues on the unit.   He has asked you record your presentation so both night and day shifts can view it at their convenience.

Issues:  The following is a list of your priority areas.  You must choose one to focus on right now.

IV Insertion

Use of Bariatric beds

Nursing uniforms for proper identification

Bed pans

Bed baths vs Bath wipes

Proper use of Restraints

Intramuscular injection technique

Wet to dry dressing changes

Fundal massage

Umbilical cord care

Nasogastric tube insertion

Use of Bed Alarms

Transfusion procedures

Prevention of CLABSI

Tracheostomy Care


1. Choose a topic area from the list above.

2.  Review nursing, medical, and evidence-based practice literature related to your topic, following guidelines from the rubric to ensure you obtain information that addresses each section of the rubric.

3.  Critically appraise the evidence you have located using the CASP Tool (refer to textbook) to determine the strength of the studies you base your recommendations upon.

4.  Synthesize information using the grading rubric as a guide.

4.  Create a Professional Poster:  Create a professional scientific poster in MS Power point, to be saved as a computer file (you do not need to have it printed) using a scientific poster template.  Poster templates can be downloaded from many sources.  Here are a few suggestions.




Read the Article:  How to Create a Professional Poster in PLE resources, as your guide for spacing, text size, headings, and content in your poster.  Poster examples are also located in the resources tab. See article attached.

Please Note:  A good presentation should address each of the areas of the rubric below.  However, your poster should not contain, word for word, everything in the rubric.  There should not be full paragraphs on your poster. Please use bullet points. The purpose of the poster is to highlight and summarize the information.
