For this assignment, think about a clinical topic, problem or question that interests you and/or
from your personal, professional, or clinical experiences. Come up with a paper approaching the
problem/question using the five evidence-based practice guidelines discussed below. The
problem/question will be related to nursing practice in some way. In other words, there needs to
be nursing implications to addressing your question. Overall guidelines for each part of the
project include:
***The Five Steps of Evidence Based Practice***
STEP ONE: Ask a clinical question which may interest you in PICO format. For example, are
there pharmacologic interventions that have been effective in decreasing allergy symptoms in
children? OR In children, what is the effect of pharmacologic interventions on allergy
symptoms?
P= Population you are interested in (e.g., children under 5 years of age)
I= Intervention or interest (e.g., use of Singulair for allergies)
C= Comparison intervention or group (e.g., comparison of Singulair with control and another
allergy medication)
O= Outcome (e.g., 20% decrease in allergy symptoms for experimental group as compared to
control group).
Define your question using PICO. Your question should be used to help establish your search
strategy. Submit the following information for your clinical question. First provide the following
(use the below format):
Patient/Problem: __________________________
Intervention: __________________________
Comparison: __________________________
Outcome: __________________________
Then write out your PICO question (IF relevant to your question, add "T" for time frame)
