NRS 433V Week 5 Assignment – PICOT Statement
You are to write a PICOT question in a word document, individually and submit for week 5.
The PICOT statement will provide a framework for your Capstone Project (The project you must complete during your final course in the RN-BSN program of study). You can review the PICO article “Evidence-Based Practice, Step by Step: Asking the Clinical Question” (2010) for help with this.
The PICO question should be written to address the following:
P-Patient population (what are the characteristics of the patient or population or what disease are you interested in)?
I- Intervention (What do you want to do with this patient population-treat/observe/diagnose)?
C- Comparison (What are the alternatives to the intervention placebo, different drug, different nursing intervention)?
O- Outcome (What is the desired effect of the intervention to the patient population)?
T- Timeframe (By when do you want to see results?)
