(Solution) NR505 Week 2 PICOT/PICO and Practice Questions

The focus for Week 2 is on questions: PICOT/PICo and practice questions.

  • Using the area of interest from Week 1, identify the following.
    • Will you be using a quantitative or qualitative approach for your EBP project proposal?
    • Explain why this approach is the best one to provide information for your area of interest.
    • Create a PICOT/PICo question using the PICOT/PICo format for quantitative and PICo for qualitative approaches.
    • Identify your practice question, being sure to include the following.
      • For a quantitative approach
        • A questioning part such as “what is,” “what are,” “is there,” or “are there”
        • Population being studied
        • Variables being studied
        • Suggestion of the relationship between variables
      • For a qualitative approach
        • Phenomenon or concept of interest
        • Group or population of interest
        • Suggestion of which qualitative research design is being used


NR505 Week 2 PICOT/PICO and Practice Questions

One major health concern facing women and the entire population at large is high maternal mortality rates. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC] (2019), among the developed nations, the United States (U.S) is the most affected by maternal deaths, recording approximately 700 pregnancy-related deaths on an annual basis (a rate of 17.2 deaths in every 100,000 live births).

The most affected are women from the low socio-economic populations including Native American, African-American, and Alaska Native women who according to MacDorman, Declercq, Cabral, and Morton (2016) are three-fold more likely to experience maternal deaths as compared to white women. There is definitely a need to address this concern by improving access to better health care services for women before, during, and after pregnancy.
