NR505NP Advanced Research Methods: Evidence-Based


The focus for Week 2 is the development of a PICOT question. Please view this short video on how to develop your PICOT question:

  • Remember- PICOT should focus on something you as an NP can implement and should focus on measurable health outcomes. Full-practice authority, burnout, satisfaction surveys, and anything that would require a policy or law change should not be used. Please view short video above to get a clearer understanding of requirements.
  • Using the area of interest identified in the Week 1 discussion, address the following:
    • Draft a PICOT question using the standard quantitative PICOT format.
    • Identify your practice question, being sure to include the following information and describe each part of the PICOT question in detail:
      • Population
      • Intervention
      • Comparison
      • Outcome
      • Time

In ________(Population) what is the effect of ___________(Intervention) in comparison to ___________ (Comparison) on _____________ (Outcome) to be completed over __________ (Time).

Review the PICOT questions of two of your peers. Provide substantive feedback and suggestions for improvement.
