NU560-8D-Unit 6 Assignment EBP Practices
In this assignment, you will refer back to assignment you completed in previous weeks, as this assignment will build upon it. You’ll be providing a solution to a clinical problem using the EBP process.
For this assignment, you will create a 13-16 slide PowerPoint, excluding the title and reference slides, covering the items below. This should be a high-level overview of what you’ve already discussed in your papers. Be sure to summarize your information (do not simply copy and paste).
Describe the select EBP problem
List the created PICOT question
Provide a high-level overview of the articles you found, organizing them by design (i.e.; qualitative, quantitative, mixed methods)
Summarize the search strategy you used to locate the articles.
Discuss what changes could be made as a result of these findings
Describe strategies and resources you would use to implement a change based on these findings
Describe areas of opportunity for future research and EBP related to your topic
Provide a conclusion and discussion of next steps
This should be a high-level overview of what you’ve already discussed in your papers. Be sure to summarize your information (do not simply copy and paste from previous papers). Your PowerPoint slides should be bullet points and/or images and not paragraphs of text. Descriptions and explanations will be written in the “speaker notes” section of the PowerPoint slides. In other words, use the “notes” section to write out what you would say if you were presenting the slides to a live audience.
You will be graded on presentation and layout. Be sure to not overcrowd your slides (follow the 7×7 Rule- No more than 7 bullet points per slide and no more than 7 words per bullet point). Finally, your background should be consistent throughout, and ensure your slides are readable. Do not use too many graphics either.
In addition, you must follow APA guidelines, providing a title slide, reference slide, and in-text citations.
Please review the rubric to ensure that your assignment meets criteria.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
