Topic: The PICOT statement
The PICOT statement will provide a framework for your capstone project (the project students must complete during their final course in the RN-BSN program of study).
Review the PICOT article “Evidence-Based Practice, Step by Step: Asking the Clinical Question: A Key Step in Evidence-Based Practice” along with the “Chapter 18: Using Research in Evidence-Based Nursing Practice” PowerPoint resource.
The first step of the EBP process is to develop a question from the practice problem you drafted in Topic 1. (NINJA SEE ATTACHED REPORT FOR TOPIC 1 Literature Search: Diabetes Management Techniques
) Start with the patient and identify the clinical problems or issues that arise from clinical care. Consider the research and writing you completed in Topics 1-4.
Following the PICOT format, write a PICOT statement in an area of interest to you, which is applicable to your proposed capstone project.
APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
This assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.
The PICOT assignment is a one page (or half page) assignment. It does need a title page. Please follow the instructions in the module overview and rubric. The rubric discusses the specific aspects of each of the 5 concepts below. Also review the websites indicated in the readings to develop this statement.
This is a nursing intervention, not a medical one.
Now, what I would like to see is this: A title page and then on the next page, filling these in to do with your topic:
P =Population to be studied (or problem)
I = Intervention, what you propose should be done
C = Compared to
O = Outcome, what would you like to see happen
T = time frame (by the time of discharge, within 3 months, etc.)
Then you will write a problem statement or question including all of the things above, in one or at the most two sentences.
This is all the assignment needs. Think about this thoroughly, it should be the basis for your last class Professional Research Project also known affectionately as capstone class. I will give you feedback on grading so that it will be ready for your capstone class and you will be ready to go right away.
