You should be using the same eight articles you chose in the week two paper. You may add articles, but still should be using a minimum of eight as you are required to have eight for all other assignments as a minimum. Websites do not count. As previously posted, all articles must be within the last five years (2015-2020). A PICOT question starts with a designated patient population in a particular clinical area and identifies clinical problems or issues that arise from clinical care. The intervention used to address the problem must be a nursing practice intervention. Include a comparison of the nursing intervention to a patient population not currently receiving the nursing intervention, and specify the timeframe needed to implement the change process. Formulate a PICOT question using the PICOT format (provided in the assigned readings) that addresses the clinical nursing problem. I will open a practice PICOT thread in the main forum so you can make sure you have this right for your paper.

The PICOT question will provide a framework for your capstone project change proposal.

In a paper of 500-750 words, clearly identify the clinical problem and how it can result in a positive patient outcome. The title page and reference page DO NOT count in the word count but everything from the first to last word of the body of the paper does.

Describe the problem in the PICOT question as it relates to the following: Your paper flows better if you use the following headings after your first paragraph. Your first paragraph should be after the title heading (which should be the same as the title on your title page). Make sure you are addressing the following and not using Population, Intervention, Comparison, Outcome, and Time for headings. Please make sure you review the rubric for this assignment.
