clear evidence-based practice (EBP) question using the PICO format is the first step in developing a change in practice. In this Discussion, you will explore the steps involved in EBP and develop a researchable EBP question in the PICO format that addresses a patient quality and safety issue.
In this Discussion you will identify three clinical practice problems in your current (or past) practice as a nurse that risk compromise to quality of care and patient safety. You will select one of these problems to clearly define the risk and ask a question using the PICO format. Asking the question and selecting the problem is the first step of the Impact Model that is discussed in the textbook. Evidence-based practice questions are asked and written in the PICO format and you will use this process as you develop an evidence-based practice project that will be completed in steps during the course.
Note Initial Post: A three-paragraph (at least 250–350 words) response. Be sure to use evidence from the readings and include in-text citations. Utilize essay-level writing practice and skills, including the use of transitional material and organizational frames. Avoid quotes; paraphrase to incorporate evidence into your own writing. A reference list is required. Use the most current evidence (usually = 5-years-old.)
