Utilizing the Clinical Focus and Clinical Guideline that was approved in Unit 4,develop a
PowerPoint® presentation addressing the clinical focus of concern, the evidence based solution
to the problem, and how the clinical might be implemented in a specific clinical setting.
Identify the PRACTICE PROBLEM.
Describe WHY this practice problem is of significance to nursing.
Identify the current specificstandardized guideline selected for use in this Project and
that addresses the problem.
Providea Working Linkto the Clinical Guideline.
Describe the quality of the clinical guideline
Identify the authors of the guideline and describe how the guideline was developed.
Address the credentials and credibility of the developers of the guideline.
Analyze the quality of the research base supporting the guideline, best practice, or
bundle since it was published. What new research has been published in support of the
Provide a summary of the current best evidence for use in practice
Identify the best evidence that supports the standardized guideline, best practice, or
bundle. (The research that has been completed that provides the evidence that supports
the guideline, best practice, or bundle). Identified from references of the guideline, best
practice, or bundle chosen.
Briefly summarize at least SIX (6) research articles providing this support. (3 each) Look
for meta-analyses, integrative reviews of research, clinical trials, and quasi-experimental
studies related to the chosen topic.
Utilize the evidence table to identify the levels of evidence each research study
represents. Utilize the following chart to determine the level of evidence:

Provide a full reference list
Provide a thoughtful reflection on the experience of developing the evidence based
presentation and how it has influenced your understanding of clinical practice changes
Creating a ProfessionalPresentation
GUIDELINE FOR A PROFESSIONAL PRESENTATION
Create slides that are not busy with narratives. If the audience can read your slides and
know the details of your presentation, then you are providing far too much on the slides.
The presenter should never be reading the slides.
In keeping with constructivist learning, slides should be another way to engage the
audience via charts, symbols, and clear, crisp, and professional graphics. I also
encourage you to refrain from using clip art as it does not convey a professional
Do NOT use full sentences and minimize bulleted points: be creative!
Full speaker’s notes with in-text citations are REQUIRED: this is the content that is
graded. The speakers’ notes should be exactly what you would say to the audience.
When your presentation is complete, upload to the Dropbox: Evidence Based Presentation.
Upload byTuesday 11:59 p.m. EST.
