Nurses and health care professionals continue to research and provide evidence-based practice material to improve on patient care, satisfaction, and over all better health outcomes. The Mayo Clinic has long been a trusted resource for the newest advancements in the medical industry. Mayo Clinic Proceedings is one of the nation’s largest-circulation medical journals published monthly. Being one of the premier peer-reviewed clinical journals in general medicine, it is among the most widely read and highly cited scientific publication for physicians. Continuously published since 1926, Mayo Clinic Proceeding’s content includes Nobel-prize-winning research and is ranked #13 of 165 journals in the Medicine, General, and Internal category. Mayo Clinic Proceedings has been instrumental in clinical and laboratory medicine, health care policy and economics, medical education, and ethics changes. (“Journals and Publications,” 2021)
By publishing my change project with this journal, I believe it would reach a target audience and allow the health care industry to witness the importance of mental and psychological issues that nurses and health care professionals are facing after caring for Covid-19 patients during the pandemic.
Valley Baptist Medical Center in Harlingen, Texas hosts a medical conference every year to bring valuable information to the health care professionals in this area. Presenting my change project at this conference would allow me an opportunity to share this valuable information with health care professionals across our region. The Rio Grande Valley consist of 4 counties and this conference is well attended by others representing their hospitals and health facilities. By sharing my information and presentation with each of these entities the information would reach a large audience. By sharing the importance of mental and psychological wellness for nurses and health care professionals this may bring about changes in many aspects of the health care industry from nurse-to-patient ratios, visitation policies, and other work-related stressors.

Evidence-based results dissemination is a critical step needed in the implementation of EBP. It usually involves presenting the results to a targeted public health or clinical practice audience” (Choi, 2005). This promotes the spread of knowledge about the EBP and enhances its application and patients care and outcome. If one were to publish and present a project, I would like to present it at the American Nurses Association conference and publish it in the American Nurses Association’s Online Journal of Issues in Nursing. It is a widespread belief that ANA and OJIN are the best options to disseminate new knowledge because millions of nurses can assess them. It is known for its reliability and validity in nursing research. Also, “OJIN is a peer-reviewed, online publication that addresses current topics affecting nursing practice, research, education, and the wider health care sector” (The American Nurses Association 2017). In addition, OJIN allows for further or additional submission of manuscripts related to already posted topics, enhancing furtherance of research studies, experiences and revealing any new evidence about the topic.
