PICOT

In reference to order #BTP30090.

 

The focus for Week 2 is the development of a PICOT question.

 

  • Using the area of interest identified in the Week 1 discussion, address the following: 
    • Draft a PICOT question using the standard quantitative PICOT format.
    • Identify your practice question, being sure to include the following:
      • Population
      • Intervention
      • Comparison
      • Outcome
      • Time

In ________(Population) what is the effect of ___________(Intervention) in comparison to ___________ (Comparison) on _____________ (Outcome) to be completed over __________ (Time).

 

Purpose

Evidence-based practice is initiated by nurses and other healthcare professionals who identify questions about specific health-related interventions and the outcomes of those interventions on individuals and populations. The creation of a PICOT question helps guide evidence-based initiatives. The purpose of this worksheet is to provide an opportunity to explore the development of a PICOT question as a foundation for evidence-based practice.  

 

Requirements:

 

  1. Review the elements included in PICOT questions to guide evidence-based nursing practice.
  2.  
  3. Respond to the questions below using the PICOT Question Worksheet Template

    .

  4. Using a minimum of 3 scholarly nursing sources, current within 5 years:
  •  
    • Identify and describe one practice-related issue or concern.  You may choose to build on the practice issue you identified in NR500NP/NR501NP.
    • Explain why the issue/concern is important to nurse practitioner practice and its impact on health outcomes.
    •  
    • Describe each element of your PICOT question in one or two sentences, being sure to address all of the following:
    •  
      • P-Population and problem– What is the nursing practice concern or problem and whom does it affect?
      •  
      • I–Intervention– What evidence-based solution for the problem would you like to apply?
      •  
      • C–Comparison– What is another solution for the problem? Note that this is typically the current practice, no intervention at all, or alternative solutions.
      •  
      • O–Outcome– Very specifically, how will you know that the intervention worked? Think about how you will measure the outcome.
      •  
      • T–Time frame– What is the Timeframe involved for the EBP initiative or the target date of completion?
      •  
    • Construct your PICOT question in the standard PICOT question format (narrative) and define each letter separately, such as:
      • P =
      • I =
      • C =
      • O =
      • T =
      • PICOT question written in full =

capstone project
Develop a searchable question using the PICOT format. (The question is a single statement identifying the components of PICOT.)

Refer to “Developing a Question” and “Topic 1: Checklist.”

NRS-441V: Capstone Project

Developing a Question

Recall the components of PICOT from your research course:

(P) Population of Focus

(I) Intervention

(C) Comparison

(O) Outcome

(T) Time

Identify each of the components in relation to your topic.

P –

I –

C –

O –

Then, develop a PICO question/statement.

Examples of PICO questions/statements:

In adult cardiac surgery patients experiencing post-operative pain (P) immediately following surgery (P), is morphine (I) or fentanyl (C), administered intravenously, more effective in reducing postoperative pain (O)?

For immune-compromised patients, 50 years and older (P), does the use of pneumonia vaccine (I) reduce the future risk of pneumonia (O) compared with patients who have not received the vaccine (C)?

Prepare for the capstone project by listening to the audio interview, “Capstone: Planning Your Project”.

Preview and utilize the “Topic 1 Checklist.” This resource will assist you in organizing your work and will provide additional information regarding the assignment.

Consider the clinical environment in which you are currently working or have recently worked. Collaborate with a leader or educator in the clinical environment to identify a problem, issue, or educational deficit upon which to build a proposal for change.

In a paper of no more than 800 words, describe the nature of the problem, issue, or educational deficit. Include the following in your discussion:

The setting and/or context in which the problem, issue, or educational deficit can be observed.
Detailed description of the problem, issue, or educational deficit.
Impact of the problem, issue, or educational deficit on the work environment, the quality of care provided by staff, and patient outcomes.
Gravity of the problem, issue, or educational deficit and its significance to nursing.
Proposed solution to address the problem, issue, or educational deficit.
