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.”
NOTE: I had already developed a PICO question originally for MY CAPSTONE PROJECT but my professor wants some adjustments.
This is what I made so far:
•P- In drug addicted patients
•I- how does non-pharmacological pain intervention
•C- compared with pain management with opioids
•O- affect relieving pain and Preventing relapse?
However, my professor wrote this in response:
Tobin – this is an interesting and important topic. As you know, the project must be nursing practice-focused. I think I see the connection with nursing practice, but would you share how you view the nurse’s role in this population?
Here are some suggestions for your consideration:
You have 4 of the 5 elements identified, but the “T” is missing. The “T” identifies the time frame for data collection. An EBP project should have a pilot project in which you measure the outcomes to determine whether or not the new intervention was effective/successful.
Also, the question itself is missing.
The final PICOT should look like:
In your patient population (P), how does new intervention (I) compared to current practice (C) affect (or you can say improve or reduce the incidence of) the desired outcome (O) over the time frame that you are measuring the outcome (T)?
PLEASE HELP ME TO DEVELOP A IMPROVED PICOT QUESTION RELATED TO WHAT I WROTE KEEPING IN MIND ITS ROLE IN NURSING PRACTICE. FILL OUT THE WORKSHEET I HAVE ATTACHED AND WRITE A SMALL RATIONALE UNDER IT.
