Q1. The process of developing a researchable question.
According to Aslam and Emmanuel (2010), a researchable
question reflects uncertainty about a research problem that can
be examined and analyzed to yield useful insights. The success
of a research project depends on how a researcher formulates
the research question based on the problems faced in the
contemporary research activities and clinical practices. A
researchable question needs extreme specificity and preciseness
which guides the implementation of the research project,
keeping in mind the identification of variables and population of
interest (Cochrane Collaboration, 2015). Based on this assertion,
the classical approach to developing a researchable question is
to follow the PICO (population, intervention, control, and
outcomes) criteria (Dewey et al., 2011; Aslam & Emmanuel,
2010). Therefore, a researchable question can be developed in
four critical steps;
(i) Pick a topic and narrow it to a specific problem under study
(ii) Outline some potential questions that can be logically asked
to address the topic
(III) Single out the question of most interest
(iv) Modify the question of interest so that it focusses on PICO
framework i.e. addresses a specific population, takes into
consideration an intervention or treatment of interest, compares
the new treatment with the existing one, and determines
the outcome or effectiveness of new treatment.
