Question Description

I’m trying to learn for my Health & Medical class and I’m stuck. Can you help?

PICOT Question and Literature Search

The first step of the evidence-based practice process is to evaluate a nursing practice environment to identify a nursing problem in the clinical area. When a nursing problem is discovered, the nurse researcher develops a clinical guiding question to address that nursing practice problem.

For this assignment, you will create a clinical guiding question know as a PICOT question. The PICOT question must be relevant to a nursing practice problem. To support your PICOT question, identify six supporting peer-revised research articles, as indicated below. The PICOT question and six peer-reviewed research articles you choose will be utilized for subsequent assignments.

Use the "Literature Evaluation Table" to complete this assignment.

  1. Select a nursing practice problem of interest to use as the focus of your research. Start with the patient population and identify a clinical problem or issue that arises from the patient population. In 200–250 words, provide a summary of the clinical issue.
  2. Following the PICOT format, write a PICOT question in your selected nursing practice problem area of interest. The PICOT question should be applicable to your proposed capstone project (the project students must complete during their final course in the RN-BSN program of study).
  3. The PICOT question will provide a framework for your capstone project.
  4. Conduct a literature search to locate six research articles focused on your selected nursing practice problem of interest. This literature search should include three quantitative and three qualitative peer-reviewed research articles to support your nursing practice problem.

Note: To assist in your search, remove the words qualitative and quantitative and include words that narrow or broaden your main topic. For example: Search for diabetes and pediatric and dialysis. To determine what research design was used in the articles the search produced, review the abstract and the methods section of the article. The author will provide a description of data collection using qualitative or quantitative methods. Systematic Reviews, Literature Reviews, and Metanalysis articles are good resources and provide a strong level of evidence but are not considered primary research articles. Therefore, they should not be included in this assignment.

While APA style is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and documentation of sources should be presented using APA formatting guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.

This assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.

facilities. The patients will mental illness are always perceived to be strange and frightening, which inhibits the level of health care.
Mental illness is one of the nursing problems that has always been undermined in the health care which put mental illness as one of the
most dangerous diseases in the society. The nurses always associate with witchcraft and demons, which makes the people always to
keep themselves at a distance. According to Carrara et al. (2019), people with mental illness are always discouraged from going to the
health facilities due to fear of discrimination, which tends to exacerbate mental health problems, which can affect the chances of
recovery. The nurses are also among the people who have a negative attitude towards mental illness, which makes the problem
becoming very demanding.
The stigma associated with mental illness is a fundamental nursing problem that needs to be examined closely to promote the
quality of health care among psychiatric patients. Psychiatric patients do have a right to achieve patient satisfaction, just like other
human beings. It is vital to ensure the nurses appreciate the importance of positive perception of the mentally ill patients just like they
are in a position to take care of other diseases. The nurses require to learn on cognitive therapy as a measure of promoting evidencebased nursing in mental illness. The research will entail determining the best measures to take to reduce the stigma of mental illness.
