Population Health Research and PICOT Statement

In this course, you will be complete a 2-part assignment in which you conduct research about a
population of focus, develop a PICOT statement, and write a Literature Review. The PICOT
statement and Literature Review you write in this course can be used for your evidence-based
practice project in the next course so be sure to select an issue you want to continue working on
in your next course.
PICOT (Population/Problem, Intervention, Comparison, Outcome, and Time to achieve the
outcome) is a method that helps clarify the qualities needed to create a good question out of a
practice issue or problem affecting the population of focus. Additionally, the information derived
from a good PICOT makes it easier to perform a literature search in order to find translational
research sources that can be used to address the clinical problem.

Use a national, state or local population health care database to research indicators of disparity.
Choose a mortality/morbidity indicator to identify a clinical problem or issue that you want to
explore pertaining to a population of focus. Use this indicator to begin to formulate a PICOT and
conduct research on the population.
Write a 750-1,000-word paper that analyzes your research and focuses on the population you
have chosen. Describe the population’s demographics and health concerns, and explain how
nursing science, health determinants, and epidemiologic, genomic, and genetic data may impact
population health management for the selected population. Provide an overview of a potential
solution for solving the health issue related to your population and the intended PICOT
statement. Describe how the solution incorporates health policies and goals that support health
care equity for the population of focus.
You are required to cite three to five sources to complete this assignment. Sources must be
published within the last 5 years and appropriate for the assignment criteria and nursing content.
Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the
Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.
