PICOT Question Development and Evidence Search Table

Using your Clinical Scenario chosen in module 1:

Identify a clinical problem and explain why a clinical problem for nursing.      .                                                                                            1Identify the clinical problem and explain why a clinical problem for nurses. (2 points)
Type your response here.
Briefly describe significance of the clinical problem by indicating number of patients who experience clinical problem, what nursing resources required to respond to clinical problem and estimated cost associated.    Use a minimum of one citation with reference.            Example: Falls jeopardize quality health outcomes and safety.  In the clinical setting where I practice, fall data are posted monthly.  In general, costs for care increase with falls, given the expense for diagnosis and treatment of fall-related injuries, plus increased time required by nursing staff. The Center for Disease and Prevention reported that Burns and colleagues estimated that national cost of hospital falls was $31 billion in 2015 (Johns Hopkins Medicine, 2015).   Johns Hopkins Medicine. (2015). Falls cost US hospitals $34 million in direct medical costs.

Cite and reference at least one source your description: (2 points – 1 point for statement of significance, 0.5 points for citation & reference, & 0.5 points for APA format)

Explain how the clinical problem jeopardizes achieving quality health outcomes and safe delivery of care.   Example:  Patient falls are considered adverse events, breaches in safe delivery of care. Patient falls can involve injuries that can jeopardize patient stability and recovery, as well as delay the hospital discharge.                                                                             3Explain how the clinical problem jeopardizes quality and safety health outcomes (1 point)

Construct and analyze an intervention-oriented PICOT question to translate the clinical problem to search for evidence   Note: Frame your PICOT question as an intervention-oriented question that compares an outcome for a designated population that receives and does not receive the intervention. Your question will need to be broad enough to lead you to a minimum of one experimental research study and one quantitative study that is not experimental. If, when you search, that is not the case, broaden your PICOT question or develop another PICOT question and search again.    Example of intervention-oriented PICOT question:  Does aromatherapy decrease anxiety for adult pre-operative patients waiting for surgery compared to adult pre-operative patients receiving usual care? P = adults, pre-operative patients I = aromatherapy C = adult pre-operative patients receiving usual care O = anxiety T = waiting for surgery                                                                                         4
