Barriers to Evidence Based Nursing
  • Nurses may not be familiar with effective search strategies

Formulating a Question

PICO is a method of putting together a search strategy that allows you to take a more evidence based approach to your literature searching when you are searching bibliographic databases.

PICO stands for:

Patient/Population                    Who or What?

Intervention                                How?

Comparison               What is the main alternative? (If appropriate)

Outcome                  What are you trying to accomplish, measure, improve, effect

  • Recent less than ten years
  • Quality of publication- peer reviewed
  • Country it was published in

Click on:

  • Clinical Tab
  • Medical library resources (found on the left)
  • Databases
  • Ebsco
  • Pick at least two – we tend to use CINAHL,Cochrane hit continue
  • Another that we use is pubmed you may get an abstract and you can ask the hospital librarian to obtain the article if you find it is pertinent (Cherie Haitz ext :5109)
  • Evidence Based practice is the way of the future
  • Questions that you have can evolve into projects that can positively affect your nursing practice or patients
  • Clinical Evidence empowers nurses to provide the best practice
  • You ,as the staff nurse, have the clearest viewpoint on your unit concerns
  • This information provides you with the evidence to communicate and support a change for best practice
  • Keep questioning what is the best practice
