Discuss your interest as a  nurse.

Evidence based practice begins with asking  questions. Have you ever wondered why a certain procedure or process is  done a certain way? Have you ever wondered why a certain procedure or  process is done instead of a different one? Have you ever wondered if  something could be done more efficiently or safer? Have you ever  wondered if something more could have been done for your patient before  they were discharged? These are all good questions and great places to  begin. Phase 1 will be a brainstorming session, you will explore and  look at some questions you may have had in the past or some you may have  now. Next you will explore your question to see if there is enough  evidence to support your question. If you cannot find enough evidence to  support your question, you may have just thought of a good research  question, however, it might not be the best question for the  evidence-based practice project. Remember, EBP is looking at existing  evidence and research along with clinical expertise and patient  preferences to support our practice, whereas research is a systematic  scientific process that leads to new knowledge.


Within your group discuss your interest as a  nurse. Discuss questions you had or have as a student nurse, write down  these questions and ideas. Consider the significance your question has  to nursing and the potential impact your project could make.  Research  your questions and thoughts. Determine if your question could be a good  question for this project. Determine if the issue has been addressed  either through research or through EBP projects. You may need to revise  your question or develop new questions. Finalize your question and be  prepared to explain the rationale behind your question and why it would  be a good question for the project.

Once you have found a good clinical  question you will put that question in the PICO Question format. The  PICO(T) model is the most commonly used model to frame EBP clinical  questions. The PICO model helps to focus your question and research to  enable you to find relevant research and evidence that can be applied to  nursing practice. Please take some time to review the PICO(T) model and  some examples.

P: Patient Population/Patient condition
I: Intervention
