RESEARCH CRITIQUE AND PICOT STATEMENTResearch Critiques and PICOT Statement Diabetes is one of the leading causes of deaths that effect millions of people worldwide. If proper treatment is not initiated early on, diabetes can lead to major illnesses that effect almostall major body systems. Unfortunately, diabetes may not always be prevented but with proper education it can be managed. This paper will highlight six different articles and discuss how theysupport the author picot question of “For the type II diabetic patient, does educating both the patient and their family on the importance of compliance with their prescribed diabetes management as compared to education of the patient alone reduce the incidences of diabetic related complications within a twelve month period?” Furthermore, the paper will discuss the methods, results and outcomes of the supporting studies as well as how these articles support an identified nursing problem.BackgroundA study was completed by Akinci, Coyne, Minear, Daratha, & Simonson (2005) over a 24 month period on preventative screenings in type II diabetic patients. The problem of focus in this study was poor management in type II diabetic patients resulting in an increase of inpatient care. This is significant to nursing because nurses should be educating patients on ways to manage illness to decrease hospital stays. The purpose of this study was to assess the association between four preventative diabetic screenings and health services utilization during a follow-up period. The research question used to collect data was “Are the four preventive diabetes screenings (retinal eye examinations, HbA1c testing, lipid testing, and albumin testing) associated with lower inpatient utilization and greater outpatient utilization?” (Akinci, Coyne, Minear, Daratha, & Simonson, 2005). The objective was to increase management of patients in an outpatient’s setting. 2
RESEARCH CRITIQUE AND PICOT STATEMENTAnother study was completed on the use of diabetic soft drinks or non-nutritive sweeteners in type II diabetic patients. The problem of focus in the study was on the negative effects of diabetic soft drinks and non-nutritive sweeteners. This is important to nursing because most patients make diet changes using diabetic soft drinks and nurses need to have an understanding on the effects to educate patients on proper management. The purpose of this study is to assess the association between diabetic soft drinks and non-nutritive sweeteners on management of diabetes. The objective was to find a link between complications of diabetes and diabetic soft drinks as well as non-nutritive sweeteners. The research question used for this studywas “Is there A relationship between diabetic retinopathy and diet drinks (soft soda) or non-nutritive sweeteners?” (Mirghani et al., 2020).Support On Nursing Issue
