The PICOT statement will provide a framework for your capstone project (the project students must complete during their final course in the RN-BSN program of study).

Review the PICOT article "Evidence-Based Practice, Step by Step: Asking the Clinical Question: A Key Step in Evidence-Based Practice" along with the "Chapter 18: Using Research in Evidence-Based Nursing Practice" PowerPoint resource.


The first step of the EBP process is to develop a question from the practice problem you drafted in Topic 1. Start with the patient and identify the clinical problems or issues that arise from clinical care. Consider the research and writing you completed in Topics 1-4.

Following the PICOT format, write a PICOT statement in an area of interest to you, which is applicable to your proposed capstone project.

Practice Creating a PICOT Question

Scenario 1: You're a recent graduate with two years' experience in an acute care setting. You've taken a position as a home health care nurse and you have several adult patients with various medical conditions. However, you've recently been assigned to care for hospice patients. You don't have experience in this area, and you haven't experienced a loved one at the end of life who's received hospice care. You notice that some of the family members or caregivers of patients in hospice care are withdrawn. You're wondering what the family caregivers are going through, so that you might better understand the situation and provide quality care.

Scenario 2: You're a new graduate who's accepted a position on a gerontology unit. A number of the patients have dementia and are showing aggressive behavior. You recall a clinical experience you had as a first-year nursing student in a long-term care unit and remember seeing many of the patients in a specialty unit for dementia walking around holding baby dolls. You're wondering if giving baby dolls to your patients with dementia would be helpful.

What type of PICOT question would you create for each of these scenarios? Select the appropriate templates and formulate your questions.

APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
