based practice involves making clinical decisions that are based on evidence, clinical experience and patient expectation (Melnyk & Fineout-Overholt, 2015). This brings about improved outcome and better quality of life for the patients. There are some barriers and obstacles that are involved in the implementation of the evidence-based practice. Examples of such barriers and obstacles include; the lack of resources. For example, some healthcare institutions may lack the necessary resources in terms of equipment and appropriate facilities that are required for such implementation. Also, sometimes there is the lack of knowledge and experienced staff for such implementation. Some of the staff in the healthcare sector lack enough experience that may be required in the implementation of evidence-based practice. Staff in the healthcare sector sometimes has heavy workload and are not therefore able to conduct research required in to conduct the evidence-based practice. Many of the healthcare staff lack the knowledge required on the use of evidence-based practice. While EBP has become an integral component of optimal patient care, nursing professionals practicing in many hospital systems globally continue to experience barriers to promotion of evidence-based care. The application of EBP can be challenging and requires collaboration and teamwork among nurses practicing in various roles. Building infrastructure to sustain and support EBP via leadership; the provision of time; access to and support for continuing education; and collaborative integration of team members will guide the development of clinical environments that promote EBP at the patient level (Tacia et al., 2015).

ASSIGNMENT Write a paper of 500-750 words (not including the title page and reference page) paper for your proposed evidence-based practice project solution. Address the following criteria: Proposed Solution Describe the proposed solution (or intervention) for the problem and the way(s) in which it is consistent with current evidence. Heavily reference and provide substantial evidence for your solution or intervention. Consider if the intervention may be unrealistic in your setting, too costly, or there is a lack of appropriate training available to deliver the intervention. If it is, you may need to go back and make changes to your PICOT before continuing. Organization Culture
