The hospital administration is key to the project because hospital equipment is necessary to carry out the project. It is important that the implication of the evidence based project is explained and permission is granted by hospital administration so that the project can use the hospital owned equipment.

Groups involved in complimentary, alternative, holistic, and integrative therapies would be approached to provide financial support to complete the study. A champion is someone who can overcome the barriers in implementing evidence-based practice (EBP). A champion for this project would be identified as a nurse practitioner or CNO.

In Lewin Change Theory, prior learning must be replaced in order to enforce change to occur. The theory uses the model of unfreezing-change-refreezing to promote change (Kritsonis, 2005). The propositions of the Change Theory are the driving forces should be pushed in a direction that can cause change to occur and this can cause a shift in the equilibrium (Kritsonis, 2005). The restraining forces are countering the driving forces. This pushes the act or person in an opposite direction and can cause a change in the equilibrium to shift in the opposite direction and, the equilibrium is where the driving forces and restraining forces are equal and no change occurs (Kritsonis, 2005). There are three stages which are the
