After reviewing the materials you created to research a specific diagnosis in the first two assessments,
apply the PICO(T) process to develop a research question and research it.
Your initial goal is to define the population, intervention, comparison, and outcome. In some cases, a
time frame is relevant and you should include that as well, when writing a question you can research
related to your issue of interest. After you define your question, research it, and organize your initial
findings, select the two sources of evidence that seem the most relevant to your question and analyze
them in more depth. Specifically, interpret each source’s specific findings and best practices related to
your chosen diagnosis, and explain how the evidence would help you plan and make decisions related to
your question.
If you need some structure to organize your initial thoughts and research, the PICOT Question and
Research Template document (accessible from the “Create PICO(T) Questions” page in the Capella
library’s Evidence Based Practice guide) might be helpful.
In your submission, make sure you address the following grading criteria:
 Define a practice issue to be explored via a PICO(T) approach. Create a PICO(T)-formatted
research question
 Identify sources of evidence that could be potentially effective in answering a PICO(T) question
(databases, journals, websites, etc.).
 Explain the findings from articles or other sources of evidence as it relates to the identified
health care issue.
 Explain the relevance of the findings from chosen sources of evidence to making decision
related to a PICO(T) question.
 Communicate using writing that is clear, logical, and professional with correct grammar and
spelling using the current APA style.
Example Assessment: You may use the following to give you an idea of what a Proficient or higher rating
on the scoring guide would look like:
 Assessment 3 Example [PDF] Download Assessment 3 Example [PDF].
Additional Requirements
Your assessment should meet the following requirements:
 Length of submission: Create a 3-5 page submission focused on defining a research question
and interpreting evidence relevant to answering it.
 Number of references: Cite a minimum of four sources of scholarly or professional evidence
that support your findings and considerations. Resources should be no more than 5 years old.
 APA formatting: Format references and citations according to the current APA style.
Portfolio Prompt: Remember to save the final assessment to your ePortfolio so that you may refer to it
as you complete the final capstone course.
