    I need to develop a searchable question using the PICOT format. (The question is a single statement identifying the components of PICOT

    Developing a Question

    I need to recall the components of PICOT from the research work completed so far:
    (P) Population of Focus
    (I) Intervention
    (C) Comparison
    (O) Outcome
    (T) Time

    Identify each of the components in relation to your topic.
    P -
    I -
    C -
    O -

    Then, I need to develop a PICO question/statement.

    Examples of PICO questions/statements:

    In adult cardiac surgery patients experiencing post-operative pain (P) immediately following surgery (P), is morphine (I) or fentanyl (C), administered intravenously, more effective in reducing postoperative pain (O)?

    For immune-compromised patients, 50 years and older (P), does the use of pneumonia vaccine (I) reduce the future risk of pneumonia (O) compared with patients who have not received the vaccine (C)?
