Define a practice issue to be explored via a PICO(T) approach
Topic: PICO(T) Questions and an Evidence-Based Approach in Nursing Instructions: Create a minimum 4 page submission in which you develop a PICO(T) question for a specific care issue and evaluate the evidence you locate, which could help to answer the question. In APA format, cite a minimum of five sources of scholarly or professional evidence that support your findings and considerations. A title page is not required. A reference page is required but does not count towards your page count! PICO(T) is an acronym that helps researchers and practitioners define aspects of a potential study or investigation. It stands for: P – Patient/population/problem. I – Intervention. C – Comparison (of potential interventions, typically). O – Outcome(s). T – Time frame (if time frame is relevant). For this assessment, please use an issue of interest from your current or past nursing practice. If you do not have an issue of interest from your personal nursing practice, then review the optional Case Studies presented below and select one of those as the basis for your assessment.

You can reach me at email@example.com. Thanks!) For this assessment, select an issue of interest an apply the PICO(T) process to define the question and research it. Your initial goal is to define the population, intervention, comparison, and outcome. In some cases, a time frame is relevant and you should include that as well, when writing a question you can research related to your issue of interest. After you define your question, research it, and organize your initial findings, select the two sources of evidence out of five that seem the most relevant to your question and analyze them in more depth. Specifically, interpret each source’s specific findings and best practices related to your issues, as well explain how the evidence would help you plan and make decisions related to your question. In your submission, make sure you address the following grading criteria: 1) Define a practice issue to be explored via a PICO(T) approach. 2) Identify sources of evidence that could be potentially effective in answering a PICO(T) question. 3) Explain the findings from articles or other sources of evidence. 4) Explain the relevance of the findings from chosen sources of evidence to making decision related to a PICO(T) question. 5) Communicate using writing that is clear, logical, and professional with correct grammar and spelling using current APA style. Cite a minimum of five sources of scholarly or professional evidence that support your findings and considerations. Sources you cite should be no more than 5 years old!
