Description Develop a research question in the PICOT format—population, intervention, comparison, outcome, and time—that relates to your current work environment or to a particular nursing interest. Consider a specific nursing intervention or nursing policy with a specific culture or patient population as the focus. In addition to developing a PICOT question, discuss the role of theory in evidence-based health promotion practice, and address the following:
Describe the selected population in your PICOT/research question and its unique health care needs. (See template for PICOT development below.)
Select a theory, and apply it to your chosen nursing intervention or nursing policy. Why did you choose this theory?
When thinking about how to evaluate (obtain an outcome) its effectiveness, what would you measure? Would you measure lab values, interview participants, or both? Why did you select the method?
Include at least 2 scholarly articles supporting your post.
The following templates can be used to develop your PICOT question:
For an Intervention question:
• In __________ (P), how does __________ (I) compared with __________ (C) affect __________ (O) over __________ (T period of time)?
For an Etiology question:
• Are __________ (P) who have __________ (I) compared with those without __________ (C) at __________ risk for __________ (O) over __________ (T period of time)?
All sources should be cited using APA format. Grammar, spelling, punctuation, and format should be correct and professional.
Note: The question developed here will be the basis for the projects in the course; that is, the literature review in Unit 3 and the project in Unit 4. Include at least 2 references to research sources. When responding to your peers this week, please provide them with constructive feedback on their PICOT question. You may need to revise your PICOT question based on instructor/peer feedback
