research topic/PICO format


Does anyone have any interesting ideas for a research topic or project?

Looking for a PICO format.

I was thinking something about central line insertions? maybe by nurses?

or something about a skin bundle for preventing pressure ulcers?

what do you guys think?

anyone doing research?

HAHAHA. I just finished research methods. Made an A. Don't have a clue (or care) what PICO means although the initials sound familiar. Maybe I'm thinking of pico de gallo. ;)

Specializes in Emergency Dept. Trauma. Pediatrics. Has 6 years experience.

I don't know what PICO is either. First thing that came to mind was that nutrient deficiency where you like eat rocks. But that's PICA I believe. :p
