Default PICO Format

I need to formulate a PICO question. My subject is what makes a good nurse manager? Any ideas anyone?

A good nurse manager?

One who isn't obsessed with Press-Gainey, Joint Commission, or overtime.

Geez they are a rarity but here goes- this is based on my Nurse Manager who is A W E S O M E.

She never lets emotion get in the way of doing her job.

Does listen well to what her staff have to say and is very good at explaining her side of things without being condescending or rude.

Is always the same, she is a very level headed and has a calm personality.

Being settled and loving the job comes across to others all the time. Having a good manager always flows down through the 'trenches'.

She is always approachable and will never turn you away.

She will hug you on days when all you want to do is cry. Support you on days that suck etc.

Hate to show ignorance but what is PICO? I guess I don't deal with it on a regular basis. Which is prolly a good thing?

PICO is the big thing in nursing education Hate it! along with EBP

P - for the patient or problem
I - for the intervention of interest
C - for comparison
O - for outcome

There is a section of town which has a high prevalence rate of obesity and diabetes. There are many churches in that area so you decide to work with the churches to develop a series of interventions to reduce both obesity and diabetes. One of the programs will target foods served at church-sponsored events which are mostly pot-luck.

Population: members of a group of churches in an area of town

Intervention: program designed to improve types of foods served at church-sponsored
events

Comparison: foods served before the intervention

Outcome: Are more nutritious foods served at church-sponsored events after the intervention?

That makes sense. I had never heard of PICO. either, but, then, I'm retired.
