NR 439 PICOT Question Guide
The following contains PICOT question guides/templates to use to help write questions using all of the PICOT elements. Each template contains a guide that you can use to write a complete PICOT question, examples of PICOT elements, and illustrations[endnoteRef:1]. Review some tips and hints below to think about for each of the PICOT elements that can help create a sound clinical nursing PICOT question: [1: Adapted from Houser XXXXXXXXXXand the American Academy of Ambulatory Care Nursing (AAACN XXXXXXXXXXAAACN research toolkit: Template for asking PICOT questions.
]
P=Population of patients:     Think about a group of patients you are interested in studying—identify the group by age ranges, diagnosis/disease of interest, history or length of time with the diagnosis/disease of interest, location, unit, or setting, gender type (if applicable), race (if applicable), or other identifiable characteristics such as Medicare, Medicaid, immobile, ventilated, inpatient, outpatient, etc.
I=Intervention:     Consider the nursing action or intervention you are thinking that would make a difference? From your search for evidence, what is the evidence indicating that nurses can do to help improve the problem or issue you have chosen?
C=Comparison:    Think about comparing to the intervention of interest or the alternative such as routine/standard care. If no comparison, state not implementing the intervention or no comparison group.
O=Outcome:    Reflect upon what would be the measurable, relatable indicator that would demonstrate the intervention is making a difference or not? What would be the needed outcome that you could observe/check/measure? For example, “the pain is okay” would not be a measurable outcome. Rates pain level less than 3 on pain scale would be measurable.
T=Timeframe:    For this element, reflect on how long it would take to implement your study by collecting data or the time needed to observe to see if any changes occu
ed or will occur. Think about 1 month, 3 months, 6 months etc... Use a timeframe that is realistic.
Template A
Among/In _________________________ (P), does______________________ (I) (**decrease/increase/impact/influence/affect
educe/improve**) _____________________ (O) compared to ______________________________ (C) over ______________________________(T)?
(**choose one term**)
Example:
Among 65+ and older diabetic immobile adults in long-term care (P), does a bedside oral care kit and checklist protocol (I) compared to routine oral care without a bedside oral care kit (C) affect the number of times oral care is completed (O) over 3 months (T)?
P=Population of patients: 65+ and older diabetic immobile adults in long-term care
I=Intervention: bedside oral care kit and a checklist protocol
C=Comparison: routine oral care without a bedside oral care kit
O=Outcome: number of times (frequency) oral care is completed
T=Timeframe: 3 months
Template B
Among/In _________________________ (P), would______________________(I) (**decrease/increase/impact/influence /affect
educe/improve **)_____________________ (O) compared to ______________________________ (C) over ______________________________(T)?
(**choose one term**)
Example:
In male ICU patients who are 65+ and older diagnosed with COPD (P), would the confusion assessment screening tool (CAST) (I) impact the number of early identification of delirium (O) compared to no screening tool (C) over 6 months (T)?

Among/In _________________________ (P), will ______________________ (I) (**decrease/increase/impact/influence/affect

(**choose one term**)
Example:
Among Hispanic pregnant women between 36-40 weeks (P), will completing a lactation course (I) increase the number of
eastfeeding initiations by or within 6 hours of delivery (O) compared to no lactation course (C) over 6 months?

Template D
Among/In _________________________ (P), what is the effect of ______________________ (I) on ____________________ (O) compared to ___________________________ (C) over ______________ (T)?
