One of the main issues noted at the Ben Archer Health Clinic in Las Cruces in addressing evidence based practice is meetings only happen once a month (Chaires, 2017). That is the only time they are able to get everyone together at one time and dissiminate important information. While it sounds like the best opportunity for addressing a solution, there is so much information that needs to be given, it tends to be overwhelming. “The top three barriers to adopting evidence based practice were lack of time, inability to understand statistical terms, and inadequate understanding of the jargon used in research articles” (Majid et. al., 2011). Enough time is needed to give the information, and to process it. The first step to resolving this would be set a time specifically to address one issue and solution at a time. It cannot be a time when other information is being given. Whether they add an inservice once a month, or do it every other month during their monthly meetings, a time needs to be set aside just for this one thing. Every other month would be a good way to start. Have one month where information is given out, and the next for an evidence based practice inservice. It would be helpful to give everyone information prior to the meeting (an email, or flyer, with the general overview). This will allow everyone to be familiar with the information prior to the meeting so that not too much new information is thrown at them at once.
