PICOT Opioid Abuse Please Help!

  1. Hi all!
    Working on my PICOT statement for my BSN. My topic is the opioid epidemic.
    I need help with my interventions.

    I was thinking about having one intervention being the education on nonpharmacological methods, but I am missing a comparison intervention.

    Please help!

    Thank you

    Wouldn't it be to a group receiving no education?

    I thought it would have to be a different intervention?

    I am not sure how I would find data on people not educated.

    Thank you for helping, I am so confused with this class!

    Most studies would have their own control group. No problem! Good luck.

    I would do a search on opioid addiction treatments and see what you find. I don't understand what you mean about education on non-pharmacological methods.

    What methods are non-pharmocological? Abstinence? Talk therapy? 12 Step programs? Is there much long-term success with these?

    Are you educating health care personnel? Or patients ?
