PICOT Statement Paper
PICOT
The PICOT statement for the change management proposal is “In the community-
dwelling adults who develop a DVT, is heparin therapy compared to Coumadin therapy more
effective at preventing a DVT reoccurrence within 6 months?”
Population of interest: Community dwelling adults with DVT
Intervention: Heparin therapy
Comparison: Coumadin therapy
Outcome: Prevented DVT reoccurrence
Time: Six Months
Evidence-based Solution
Coumadin and heparin are the two blood thinners that act as evidence-based solutions to DVT.
Both therapeutic approached have been useful in treating and preventing the condition stated
within the PICOT Statement. Heparin is also useful during surgeries and related procedures to
prevent against clotting. Nonetheless, the change management proposal cites heparin as the
intervention that would remain useful in achieving the desired outcomes (Streiff et al., 2016).
The therapeutic intervention has been notable for the enhanced prevention and management of
both PE and DVT. The approach has also been useful in the prevention of blood clots occurring
following atrial fibrillation, blood transfusions, and dialysis. However, it still requires monitoring
with routine visits for appropriate management. Thus, this solution is preferable to Coumadin for
the short half-life characteristic as linked to time within the PICOT Statement.
