What would a poster presentation look like that shows how the gap has been bridged between evidence-based practices to actual implementation in the field? The topic is Implementing an Intervention to Improve Access to Mental Health Services. Information that would need to be included:
- Identifies the topic and provides guidance on the specific concern you sought to improve.
- Discusses the implications of implementing this intervention or policy for the hospital and the patient population or community it serves.
- Explains the framework utilized and why this particular framework was chosen, including the framework’s strengths and limitations.
- Describes the internal and external stakeholders involved.
- Includes a brief summary of your research. Make sure you discuss the quality of evidence you discovered.
- Lists the evidence-based practice(s) that you found could solve this problem.
- Offer recommendation of the practice to be implemented based on the evidence.

The primary goal of this program is to prevent and reduce obesity
in society through a multi-component obesity prevention intervention.
The program's specific concern is the rise in obesity in society, which is
a growing public health issue. The program aims to address this concern
by implementing evidence-based interventions such as lifestyle
counseling, physical activity promotion, and nutrition education, with a
focus on those with a BMI of 30 or higher and those with obesity-
related comorbidities such as type 2 diabetes and hypertension. The
program's primary goal is to improve patients' overall health outcomes
and lower healthcare costs associated with obesity-related diseases by
lowering obesity prevalence.
• The "Preventing Obesity" project will first use the CFIR to identify
factors that influence evidence-based therapy uptake. This framework
consists of 39 components and five major areas to support
implementation research and practice. The CFIR framework's
comprehensiveness and ability to identify and overcome significant
barriers to the adoption of our evidence-based intervention make it
ideal for obesity prevention implementation research.
• The Obesity Prevention Initiative will also use the theoretical Domains
framework (TDF), which emphasizes theoretical domains that promote
behavior change. The TDF will also aid in the prevention of obesity by
identifying diet and exercise behavior modification variables. The TDF
will also highlight potential barriers to behavior change, which may
influence efforts to overcome them. The TDF will also be used by the
project's stakeholders to develop interventions that target their target
demographics' most critical behavior change factors.
• The Diffusion of Innovations theory will also be used in this program to
develop and implement obesity prevention initiatives for a variety of
Summary of the Research
The goal of this multi-component obesity prevention intervention
program is to reduce obesity prevalence in patients by 10% by
implementing evidence-based interventions such as lifestyle counseling,
physical activity promotion, and nutrition education. The program
primarily targets patients with a BMI greater than 30 and obesity-related
comorbidities, with the goal of improving their overall health outcomes
and lowering healthcare costs associated with obesity-related diseases.
However, the program may face obstacles such as patient and
organizational resistance to change, treatment costs, and a lack of
recognition of obesity as a chronic disease. It is recommended that
implementation science be used to help overcome these barriers by
identifying key stakeholders, resources needed, and funding sources. To
ensure the program's success, it is recommended that a needs assessment
be conducted, a thorough implementation plan be developed, and
patients and stakeholders be involved in program development and
implementation. In terms of evidence quality, the study used network
meta-analysis and a systematic review, both of which are considered high-
Specific Concerns the program aims to Address
Researchers and academics interested in obesity prevention are among
the study's internal stakeholders, while policymakers, healthcare
professionals, and educators are among its external participants.
The recommendations of the practice to be implemented based on the
evidence in the program preventing obesity include:
• Combining physical activity with healthy eating habits to prevent
• Involving individual, family, community, and policy levels in the
• Adopting an implementation science strategy to guarantee successful
implementation of the obesity prevention program
• Conducting a needs assessment before implementing the program to
identify healthcare professionals, patients, and community members
who will be impacted by it and their perceptions of it
• Using the needs assessment to identify any gaps that might hinder
achieving the program's objectives
• Involving patients and stakeholders in program development and
implementation to guarantee that the program is patient-centered and
• Ensuring that the program is evidence-based and patient-centered to
increase its effectiveness and sustainability.
Preventing obesity program implications is that it will:
• Reduce the prevalence of obesity in the patient population by 10%.
• Target individuals with a BMI above 30 and comorbidities related to
• Implement evidence-based interventions such as lifestyle counseling,
physical activity promotion, and nutrition education.
• Offer activities such as nutrition education, exercise sessions, training in
behavioral techniques, and specific dietary prescriptions.
• Address both physical activity and diet to prevent obesity.
• Champion for a multi-component obesity prevention intervention.
• Enhance patients' overall health outcomes.
• Lower healthcare expenses connected to obesity-related diseases.
• Which strategies are most successful at preventing childhood and
• What kind of intervention is most successful in avoiding childhood and
• Are there any one-on-one strategies that can successfully stop
childhood and teenage obesity?
