While the implementation plan prepares students to apply their research to the problem or issue they have identified for their capstone change proposal project, the literature review enables students to map out and move into the active planning and development stages of the project.

A literature review analyzes how current research supports the PICOT, as well as identifies what is known and what is not known in the evidence. Students will use the information from the earlier PICOT Statement Paper and Literature Evaluation Table assignments to develop a 750-1,000 word review that includes the following sections:

  1. Title page
  2. Introduction section
  3. A comparison of research questions
  4. A comparison of sample populations
  5. A comparison of the limitations of the study
  6. A conclusion section, incorporating recommendations for further research

Running Head: PICOT 1 PICOT Statement on Diabetes Gregory Catania RN Grand Canyon University NRS 490 11/25/18 2 PICOT PICOT Statement on Diabetes Over the past few decades, diabetes has become a predominant health concern in the world. The prevalence of prolonged, non-communicable illnesses is increasing at a rapid rate. It is estimated that about 19 million individuals die annually due to cardiovascular illness, for which diabetes is the major underlying cause (Vakili et al., 2015). At the moment, over 1.7 billion adults worldwide are overweight and 315 million of them being obese. The number of adults with type 2 diabetes is approximated to be 250 million and it is projected to increase to 400 million by 2025 (Marseglia et al., 2016). With these statistics, it implies that a diabetes epidemic is underway. Diabetes occurs due to the impaired glucose sensitivity, whereby the blood glucose is too high. The key risk factors for diabetes include obesity and physical inactivity. Research has proved that the risk of developing diabetes can be significantly reduced by lifestyle changes (RuszkowskaGiastek et al., 2015). That said, this paper illustrates a PICOT statement on diabetes, especially on adults, and how it can be controlled. PICOT Question: An increased glucose level is independently related to an increased A1C level. Does reducing the A1C levels with specialized teaching from the nurse, practitioners, and dieticians help to control diabetes on adult patients? Population: The population for the study are American adult patients diagnosed for type 2 diabetes, aging 40 to 60 years old. This population is heterogeneous with respect to comorbidities and general health status, which is important to establishing the appropriate intervention. 3 PICOT Intervention: The intervention is quite essential as it explains on the way the researchers addressed the problem and helped the population specified for the study. Implementation of dietary and lifestyle changes would help control type 2 diabetes. Comparison: In order to determine whether the intervention is successful, A1C levels would be measured before and after the changes in lifestyle and diet. Outcome: At the end of the study, it is expected that the A1C levels of adult diabetic patients would reduce. Timeframe: The research would be conducted over a period of 12 weeks. PICOT Statement Control of type 2 diabetes for American newly diagnosed adult patients has been problematic (P) due to the poor lifestyle and diet, which leads to an increased glucose level. Specialized teaching from the nurse, practitioners, and dieticians is an effective strategy to make the patients live appropriately by eating the right food and doing exercises (I), which can enable them to control their A1C levels (C) and live the normal life (O) within 12 weeks (T). Education as regards to lifestyle modifications has been proved to be an effective intervention for controlling type 2 diabetes. Kuo et al. (2015) indicate that lifestyle interventions such as regular exercises and diet changes reduce the incidence of diabetes by 53 percent compared 4 PICOT to the control group. People assigned to these interventions reported reduced A1C levels than the control group. In a similar study by Islam, et al. (2014), changing the lifestyle plays a key role in reducing in the glucose levels, which further minimizes the cases of diabetes by 27 percent. Hence, there is an important relationship between increased glucose level and increased A1C level as well as the lifestyle change and reduced A1C levels, which leads to effective control of diabetes. Among patients with pre-diabetes, it is worth to control their diet and do regular exercises to help in a decrease of diabetes occurrence. Failure to prevent diabetes means increased mortality. It is, therefore, the responsibility of each person to ensure they are living a healthy life to lower the risk of diabetes. 5 PICOT References Islam, S.M.S., Alam, D.S., & Wahiduzzaman, M., Nielsen, L.W, Fresch, G., Ferrari, U, Seisoler, J, Rouf, H, M.A & Lechner, A.

The analysis deployed used t-test, logic analysis and simple logic regression analysis Methods included observation, laboratory tests, cognitive functions tests Analysis was done using multivariate linear regression to estimate differences and multi-nominal logistic regression to examine association Statistical Logistic regression model The study revealed that even in the best clinical setting the control of diabetes was suboptimal. Average HBA1C was 8.3; hypertension 51%, 71% had uncontrolled T2D. Uncontrolled diabetes led to eye complications (68.9%), chronic kidney disease (21.3%), CVD (11.8%) and Neurological issues (2.5) from the study subjects. There is need to have consistent screening using HBA1C goal, reduce BP and addition of statins to treatment regimens to help lower high cholesterol. The study reported that uncontrolled diabetes exposes patient to risk of dementia.

Literature Review


Diabetes has been a complex, chronic illness that has over the years required
continuous medical care with multifactorial risk reduction strategies beyond glycemic control.
The medical care and power have been seen to be effective over the long-term and recovery
possible. The chronic hyperglycemia of diabetes is associated with long-term damage,
dysfunction, and failure of different organs, especially the eyes, kidneys, nerves, heart, and blood
vessels. (American Diabetes Association, 2014) It is evident that the illness has been very
adamant in the current society as there has been an increase in the exposure of individuals to the
risk factors that result in Diabetes. However, research has shown that Background lifestyle
interventions delay the onset of diabetes in people with impaired glucose tolerance. (Chen Y,
2018) This paper looks at the article review of the PICOT statement on diabetes and explores
other sources that support the statement.
Comparison of Research Questions
The Research question gives us an explicit objective of the project to be carried
out. It emphasises the thesis to be proved. The PICOT research question stated that an increased
glucose level is independently related to an increased A1C level...
