Barriers to knowledge use Assessment


Assessment 2 – Barriers to knowledge use Assessment

Type Presentation Description In assessment one you blogged about a knowledge policy/practice gap you identified in your local practice setting. In this assessment you will identify the types of barriers that are contributing to the gap and present it to your peers in an infographic. An infographic (information graphic) is a representation of information in a graphic format designed to make data easily understandable at a glance. People use infographics to quickly communicate a message, to simplify the presentation of large amounts of data, and to represent patterns and relationships. Resources on how to create an infographic can be found on Blackboard via Assessment>Help with Assessments>Designing an Infographic. Your infographic should provide the reader with the following type of information: • What is the knowledge policy/practice gap you identified? • How do we know the gap exists? • How extensive is the difference between current practice and recommended practice? • What is the significance of the gap to patients, the facility, and/or the health service? • What are the barriers and facilitators to knowledge uptake? Save your infographic as a PDF document and attach it to a post in the assessment two discussion board. You must create a thread and add your post before you can view other students infographics in the forum. You can’t edit or delete your work once it has been saved so please use the ‘save draft’ feature until you are ready to publish your infographic. Please feel free to leave comments on your fellow students posts.
