Review the “Checklist for Conducting an Evidence Review for Initiating Practice Change,” available in the textbook appendix. You should save this tool and use it throughout the development of the PICOT question, problem description, and literature review.
Begin the development of your PICOT question, using the following resources:
1. “Template for Asking PICOT Questions” available in the textbook appendix
2. Text readings
Formulate your PICOT question. Review the statements to see if the clinical issue is clearly defined and that all aspects are identified. Also refer to the “PICOT: Components of an Answerable, Searchable Question” table, located in chapter 2 of the text. If one PICOT statement has at least three feedback posts, move to another statement.
