5. Evidence-based Practice for a Targeted Population( . Identify an evidence-based (EBP) intervention or program that addresses the needs of your population of interest (or another population of interest or health issue of your choice). For example, the Nurses for Newborns program provides a safety net for families most at-risk in order to prevent infant mortality, child abuse, and neglect by providing in- home nursing visits that promote healthcare, education, and positive parenting skills. It was initiated due to the research results showing that at-risk moms benefit from additional healthcare visits and support. Your intervention can be a community-level intervention, for example, the one found in the article of a community-level one involving public health nurses and restaurants in reducing sodium content in food. The intervention or program can be on a local, national, or global level. Identify if the intervention is primary, secondary, or tertiary. Discuss any actual or potential barriers, gaps, or challenges that may affect the implementation of evidence-based care for this population (for example: related to change, economics, behavior, literacy). Discuss any actual or potential barriers or challenges that may affect the process of evaluating the effectiveness of the evidence-based intervention for this population. (300 words min)
