I have an idea of a PICO question for my EBP paper but don't know if its good

  1. 0
    I hope its okay if I ask people for help on this. I'm not really too keen about research in general, I've had several bad research papers in the past that made me have a bad feeling about it. I know thats bad since being a consumer of research is so ideal in nursing because using evidence-based practice ensures patients get the best quality care according to whats out there.

    Anyway, after thinking about my interests and thats not a lot haha, I was interested in a paper on comparing antidepressant medications, circumcision and its prevention of diseases, and aromatherapy on cancer patients. I really like CAM and think its interesting so I decided to choose acupuncture and laboring women. I figure since I'm taking maternity nursing it would be more relevant and keep me focused haha. Anyway here is the question...

    In ___pregnant women in labor____(P), what is the effect of __acupuncture_____(I) on ____pain symptoms__(O) ?

    Please provide comments, suggestions, feedback. Any feedback is good feedback to me!

    P = population - women in labor
    I = intervention - accupuncture
    C = Comparison - no accupuncture
    O = Outcome - what outcome do you think will happen?

    Is there enough information out there or scholarly articles available for you to gather information for your research paper?
