CP Week 3 Discussion

– State your PICOT question.- Indicate in parentheses after each segment, what part of PICOT the preceding words represent.- For example: In patients recently discharged from the hospital following care for heart failure (P), do hand-off calls by the nurse to the primary care provider using the SBAR format (situation, background, assessment, recommendation) (I) compared to no calls (C) decrease readmission rates (O) over a one year period (T).- Provide feedback to your classmates that focus on:- The use of the correct PICOT format for the question to guide the literature search.- Does the question reflect a clinical issue and one appropriate for an evidence-based practice project?- Can this project be completed in a primary care setting if the student is in an NP program?- Can this project be complete in a setting appropriate to the student’s focus–NE, NA, NI?- Does the student need to include time or a comparison group to get the answer to their question?Note: many times, the population chose can serve as their own controls.
