NURSING PICO QUESTION
- Formulate a PICO question for your “Design A Research Study” assignment. Use the following formulated question as PICO question to create the Concept Map:
Which form of oxytocin administration during the third stage of labor is most effective in reducing the risk of postpartum hemorrhage?
- Create a concept map for your PICO question, using the module resources on concept mapping. Using guidelines from the concept mapping topic of this module, create a new concept map based on your PICO question. See resources and guidelines attached below
- The first step is in concept mapping to create boxes with the four pieces of your PICO.
- Then begin making connections between the population, intervention, comparison, and outcomes for your question.
- Expand your map by including additional levels of concepts, ideas, and search terms (synonyms) for each subtopic.
- You should have at least three levels of sub-concepts in addition to your main PICO concepts. This process will help you tremendously when you begin to search the databases for literature on your paper topic.
