***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):
Then write out your PICO question (IF relevant to your question, add “T”” for time frame) Template for Asking PICOT Questions
