Developing PICO Questions

Developing PICO Questions

Developing PICO Questions
Determining the topic of an evaluation is one of the most important steps of the evaluation process. In the process of selecting a topic for evaluation, researchers should reflect on what information needs to be gathered and how it will be used. A PICO question can provide the foundation for this process. The PICO question requires researchers to determine the population to be studied, select the intervention that occurred or will occur (such as a new system), have a baseline with which to compare the evaluation, and finally, have a standard to measure the outcome of the project. Using a PICO question as a guideline helps ensure the evaluation is focused and effective.
In this Discussion, you generate a PICO question that corresponds to the Evaluation Plan Focus you developed last week.
 
To prepare:
 

  • Develop a PICO question based on the Evaluation Plan Focus Assignment completed last week.
  • Reflect on why it is important that this question be answered. Identify the “who cares?” factor.
