When you decide to purchase a new car, you first decide what is important to you. If

mileage and dependability are the important factors, you will search for data focused
more on these factors and less on color options and sound systems.
The same holds true when searching for research evidence to guide your clinical inquiry
and professional decisions. Developing a formula for an answerable, researchable
question that addresses your need will make the search process much more effective.
One such formula is the PICO(T) format.
In this Discussion, you will transform a clinical inquiry into a searchable question in
PICO(T) format, so you can search the electronic databases more effectively and
efficiently. You will share this PICO(T) question and examine strategies you might use
to increase the rigor and effectiveness of a database search on your PICO(T) question.
To Prepare:
? Review the Resources and identify a clinical issue of interest that can form the
basis of a clinical inquiry.
? Review the materials offering guidance on using databases, performing keyword
searches, and developing PICO(T) questions provided in the Resources.
? Based on the clinical issue of interest and using keywords related to the clinical
issue of interest, search at least two different databases in the Walden Library to
identify at least four relevant peer-reviewed articles related to your clinical issue
of interest. You should not be using systematic reviews for this assignment,
select original research articles.
? Review the Resources for guidance and develop a PICO(T) question of interest
to you for further study. It is suggested that an Intervention-type PICOT question
be developed as these seem to work best for this course. 
*Library tip: 
Walden Library recommends starting your search broadly with one concept or search
word and adding more elements one at a time. Depending on your topic, the evidence
will not necessarily address all the aspects of your PICO(T) question in one article.
Select the most important concepts to search and find the best evidence available, even
if that means assembling evidence from multiple articles.
? Nursing Research Page – databases and resources specifically for Nursing
? Evidence-Based Practice guide: Evidence Types
? Nursing and Health research videos, including a 15-minute introduction
? Get Help page, including Ask a Librarian service
Quick Answers:
? How do I find an article that reports on research that uses a specific
? How do I find original or primary research that analyzes empirical data?
? What is the Find at Walden button?
By Day 3 of Week 4
Post a brief description of your clinical issue of interest. This clinical issue will remain
the same for the entire course and will be the basis for the development of your PICOT
question. Describe your search results in terms of the number of articles returned on
original research and how this changed as you added search terms using your Boolean
operators. Finally, explain strategies you might make to increase the rigor and

effectiveness of a database search on your PICO(T) question.
