The Practice Question Discussion



The purpose of this discussion is to demonstrate your understanding of the practice question in a practice change project.


  1. Using your selected practice problem, the appraised quantitative research study used in Week 1, and the evidence-based intervention from the Week 1 research study, write a one-sentence practice question.
  2. Use the format tool (PICOT), Johns Hopkins Individual Evidence Summary Tool, and the quantitative research study used in Week 1 to determine if your practice question is feasible in a practice setting.
    1. Identify the evidence-based intervention from the study.
    2. Identify the specific patient population who would benefit from this intervention in a practice setting.
    3. Identify the outcomes specific to the evidence-based intervention.
    4. Describe all biophysiological measures, any surveys or questionnaires, and the timing at the outcomes were measured. As an example, were the outcomes measured every other week?
