I wanted to see if anyone had any suggestions. Because I am so new into the program, I'm not even sure what areas I would be interested in. (I am leaning towards anything neurological or maternity, but any ideas would be greatly appreciated!) Thanks!

- Sep 7, '12 by al7139Hi if you are interested in neuro, why not do stroke? The hospital i work at is stroke certified,so there are very strict protocols that must be followed,all of which have been backed by evidence based practice which are proven guidelines for handling a possible stroke. If you are interested feel free to contact me for assistance. amy

- Sep 11, '12 by caitcusack914Thank you for your input! Esme12, I had previously looked on the website you had sent, but I have some trouble changing the information into PICO questions.
& to Amy, I do like the idea of writing about strokes, I'm sure there is plenty info out there. I need to make up a question in which I compare one intervention with another, any suggestions?
