Answer

The intial step in searching for Evidence Based Nursing articles is to compose a question that you would like to have answered. This is called a PICO Question.

To find articles related to your PICO (Patient, Intervention, Comparison, Outcome) question, you can click on the following link, and perform a PubMed keyword search on your specific topic:

http://pubmedhh.nlm.nih.gov/nlmd/pico/piconew.php

 

PICO is the acronym for these words or phrases in your question:

Patient/Problem:   (medical condition)

Intervention:   (therapy, diagnostic test, etc)

Compare to:

Outcome:
