Updated | Posted

Good evening. I am trying to come up with a PICO question regarding routine Prenatal care. Any suggestions?

I have no idea what that means or what you are asking. Sorry!

I am an OB nurse and have knowledge and experience on prenatal care, so I can possibly help you there, but I don't know what you're asking.

I am taking a research class at my nursing school and one of my assignments is to come up with a nursing clinical research question?

I must have had too much wine with dinner. I'm not a stupid person, but I'm really not understanding what you're asking.

I understand what the acronym PICO means now, but can you give me an example in practice?

Population: Native American women

Intervention: Alcohol use during pregnancy

Am I on the right track?

here's an example:

does perineal massage compare to no perineal massage in order to reduce the rate of episiotomy in first time mothers?
