Two additional important elements of the well-built clinical question to consider are the type of foreground question and the type of study (methodology). This information can be helpful in focusing the question and determining the most appropriate type of evidence. Foreground questions can be further divided into questions that relate to therapy, diagnosis, prognosis, etiology/harm Knowing the type of foreground question can help you select the best study design to answer your question. You always want to look for the study design that will yield the highest level of evidence. Consult the pyramid (click the image to enlarge it) and the definitions below. To see more info on the relationship between study design and question type, check out Chapter Four "What is the Question? from the Users' Guide to the Medical Literature. Definitions of Study Types (From BMJs Clinical Evidence Glossary) Meta-analysis: A statistical technique that summarizes the results of several studies in a single weighted estimate, in which more weight is given to results of studies with more events and sometimes to studies of higher quality. Systematic Review: a review in which specified and appropriate methods have been used to identify, appraise, and summarize studies addressing a defined question. … Continue reading

PICO – Evidence-Based Practice – LibGuides at Duke …

Posted: at 5:17 am

A clinical question needs to be directly relevant to the patient or problem at hand and phrased in such a way as to facilitate the search for an answer. PICO makes this process easier. It is a mnemonic for the important parts of a well-built clinical question. It also helps formulate the search strategy by identifying the key concepts that need to be in the article that can answer the question. PICO or PICOTT: PATIENT OR PROBLEM How would you describe a group of patients similar to yours? What are the most important characteristics of the patient? INTERVENTION, EXPOSURE, PROGNOSTIC FACTOR What main intervention are you considering? What do you want to do with this patient? COMPARISON What is the main alternative being considered, if any? OUTCOME What are you trying to accomplish, measure, improve or affect?

P I C O: Formulate an Answerable Question

Posted: at 5:17 am

Questions often spring to mind in a form that makes finding answers in the medical literature a challenge. Dissecting the question into its component parts and restructuring it so that it is easy to find the answers is an essential first step in Evidence Based Medicine (EBM). Many questions can be divided into 4 parts: Many clinical or research questions can be divided into these four components, which we call P I C O. Try to use all four parts of the question, if possible. Different types of questions The most common type of clinical question is about how to treat a disease or condition. In Evidence Based Medicine (EBM), treatments and therapies are called interventions and such questions are questions of INTERVENTION. Not all research questions are about interventions. Other types of questions may arise: In each case the P I C O method can be used to formulate the question, as shown in the following examples. You can use the same approach to research qualitative questions about health issues of a more general nature (i.e. PHENOMENA). In this case, the question will consist of P and O only. The studies that you will need to find in the … Continue reading

Sodium picosulfate (Dulcolax Pico). Constipation …

Posted: June 10, 2015 at 1:40 am

About sodium picosulfate Type of medicine Stimulant laxative Used for Constipation and before some surgery or medical examinations Also called For constipation: Dulcolax Pico For before medical procedures: CitraFleet; Picolax Available as Capsules, oral solution, sachets of powder Constipation can be caused by a poor diet, not drinking enough water and not going to the toilet as soon as you feel you need to. Pregnancy, a lack of exercise or movement (such as being ill in bed) and some medicines, including some painkillers, can also cause constipation. However, many people take laxatives when they do not need to because they believe that they are constipated unless they go to the toilet every day. This is not the case. A useful definition of constipation is going to the toilet less frequently than is normal for you, and passing hard stools (poo) when you do go. Sodium picosulfate works by encouraging the muscles in your bowel to move waste products through your body. This helps you to go to the toilet. It usually has an effect within 6-12 hours. Sodium picosulfate preparations are available to buy without a prescription at pharmacies and other retail outlets. Preparations containing sodium picosulfate (in combination with … Continue reading

Drug Factsheets Health Home>>Medications (picosulfate sodium - magnesium oxide - citric acid) DIN (Drug Identification Number) 02254794 PICO-SALAX POWDER FOR SOLUTION How does Pico-Salax work? What will it do for me? This is a combination product that contains three ingredients: picosulfate sodium, magnesium oxide, and citric acid. This medication is used to cleanse the bowel in preparation for a colonoscopy, barium enema x-ray exam, or surgical procedures that require a clean colon. Picosulfate sodium belongs to the class of medications called stimulant laxatives, which activate the colon and stimulate the muscles in the colon to contract, causing a bowel movement. Magnesium oxide and citric acid combine to form magnesium citrate, which is an osmotic laxative that increases water in the colon. The combined effect clears out the bowels. Full bowel cleansing usually occurs within 3 to 6 hours or less. This medication may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of this medication may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of this medication may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here. Your doctor may … Continue reading

Retrospective cohort study – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Posted: February 11, 2015 at 6:42 am

A retrospective cohort study, also called a historic cohort study, generally means to take a look back at events that already have taken place. For example, the term is used in medicine, describing a look back at a patient's medical history or lifestyle. Retrospective cohort studies have existed for approximately as long as prospective cohort studies.[1] It is a medical research study in which the medical records of groups of individuals who are alike in many ways but differ by a certain characteristic (for example, female nurses who smoke and those who do not smoke) are compared for a particular outcome (such as lung cancer).[2] In retrospective cohort studies, a risk ratio or odds ratio gives an assessment of relative risk.[3] In the case of a retrospective cohort study, the investigator collects data from past records and does not follow patients up as is the case with a prospective study. However, the starting point of this study is the same as for all cohort studies. The first objective is still to establish two groups - exposed versus non-exposed; and these groups are followed up in the ensuing time period. In a nutshell, in Retrospective Cohort Study, all the events - … Continue reading

PICO Questions – Ebling Library

Posted: at 8:41 am

Finding relevant medical information is often easier if you first develop a PICO question. This is a way of formulating a medical question to better match the capabilities of database (MEDLINE, etc.) search engines. PICO is an acronym for: PICO Example: Therapy In a 4 year old boy requiring antibiotics, do probiotics decrease the risk of developing antibiotic associated diarrhea? P = 4 yo male on antibiotics I = probiotics C = none/placebo O = decrease the risk of antibiotic associated diarrhea PICO terms can be used to create a potential search strategy to search relevent EBM and health databases. Since terminology in the health in filled with synonyms, you may need to list and search multiple terms for a single concept: P = antibiotics, antimicrobial agents I = probiotic, probiotics, lactobacillus, acidophilus O = diarrhea From this PICO, a good search strategy might look like this: (antibiotics OR antimicrobial agents) AND (probiotics OR lactobacillus OR acidophilus) AND diarrhea Try using a PICO Worksheet to convert your scenario into a search query and process to find relevant articles in EBM resources and databases.
