When planning an EBP implementation, it is a must to understand the local health care system because in each locality or community the health care needs may be different and available resources may vary. For the successful implementation of EBP, educated and skilled human resources such as doctors, nurses, and other healthcare workers are essential to provide leadership and the necessary competence. Lack of adequate skilled health care workers is the main barrier in the implementation of EBP. Besides that, the organizational structure of the healthcare system at the local level, an awareness of the culture and tradition of the community and their educational standard, and religious beliefs are also vital in EBP. Cultural factors play an important role in influencing the successful implementation of EBP because it influences the cooperation of the stakeholders in the process (Joseph, 2019).


The organization where the writer currently working is a mental and behavioral health facility and most of the patients come from jail and the educational qualification is below high school for most of them. When the writer discussed the topic of prevention of infection in hospital units, the preceptor instructed to provide adequate health education to the patients about the importance of personal hygiene because most of the patients have aggressive behavior and disorganized thought process which prevent them to maintain personal hygiene and cleanliness.

Using 200-300 words APA format with at least two references. Sources must be published within the last 5 years. There should be a mix between research and your reflections. Add critical thinking in the posts along with research. Apply the material in a substantial way.


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.
