Need help with my PICO question! OB relatedRegister Today!
- by Best_Name_Ever Feb 16Hello everyone!
I am working on a poster for my Nursing Research class. I am having trouble coming up with the wording for my PICO question. I could really use some suggestions.
Basically, I am researching whether perineal massage helps reduce the occurrence of perineal trauma (episiotomy/lacerations)?
I am trying to make a PICO meaning question, which requires the following parts:
For my question, the population is obviously women. The intervention is perineal massage. The comparison is no perineal massage? And the outcome would be reduction of perineal trauma.
I just need help putting these parts together to form a question that sounds okay! I am having a writer's block....and I feel like everything I come up with sounds awkward!
Thanks in advance!

Here's a tip- be more specific in your population description. Yes, it's women, but are you going to find studies about perineal massage that reference 60 year old women with arthritis? I think not. Who, specifically, does your question relate to?
