I need help with my PICOT question. It is on developmental positioning in the NICU and the education for the
Among NICU nurses providing care for premature infants (P) does providing structured education on infant positioning (I) compared to not providing any advice on positioning (C) help reduce incidences of neuromuscular deformity (O) until infant discharge from NICU (T).
The above was help from a tutor but below is what my instructor is saying:
Is the (P) NICU nurses OR premature infants? This is unclear. If it is nurses, then the outcome should deal with nurses, not babies.
Would neuromuscular deformities be apparent at the time of discharge from the nursery?
If the evidence supports that the (O) is improved by the (I), then you will know that the PICOT is fine.
Can you please help with my instructors questions?
