uncovered. Make sure it is related to nursing, i.e., one that a nurse can solve
independently. Do not select a medical problem that is dependent upon a medical
professional to resolve.

Example 1:
What is the PICO(T) question?
Will influenza immunization compliancy rates increase if flu
clinics are provided in a Flu PODS and immunization clinics at convenient times
covering all shifts?
Define each element of the question below:
P- (Patient, population, or problem): Hospital employees and
volunteers required to have the influenza immunization annually
I -(Intervention): Offer multiple Flu “PODS” and
immunization clinics to hospital employees and volunteers making it convenient
to receive the required immunization. Offer at a variety of times, available to
all shifts
C- (Comparison with other treatment/current practice):
Compare analytics showing employees and volunteers who received flu shot prior
to 2016 when Flu PODS and immunization clinics were not offered compared to
2016 where Flu PODS and immunization clinics are offered to accommodate shifts.
Track number of employees/volunteers coming at each hour time frame.
O- (Desired outcome): Increase of compliance of receiving
the annual mandatory flu shot by employees and volunteers
Example 2:
What is the PICO(T) question?
For non-diabetic patients on corticosteroid therapy, does

vs. no observations for signs of hyperglycemia promote improvement of pulmonary
complications?
