Depending on licensure and scope of practice, some DPI projects can be in conflict.  Please ensure you have read your state’s Nurse Practice Act. Providing this information assists the PICOT reviewer with insight into the conduct of the project.

PICOT For adult medical-surgical patients 18 years and older, will the implementation of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality’s (AHRQ) Nurse-Driven Early Mobility Protocol compared to current practice decrease the patient’s time to first ambulation and an average length of stay in an urban Kentucky hospital over four-weeks?
Problem Statement Problem:

It was not known if or to what degree the implementation of __________________would impact ______________ when compared to _______________ among ___________ (population)

Example:

Engel, Tatebe, Alonzo, Mustille, and Rivera (2013) indicates that early mobilization of patients decreases the average length of hospital stay in critical care areas. Fisher, Kuo, Graham, Ottenbacher, and Ostir (2010) pointed to the time to ambulation and length of stay. It is not known if a nurse-driven early mobilization protocol will decrease the mean-time to ambulation and an average length of hospital stay in the medical-surgical population of an urban Kentucky hospital (AHRQ, 2017). Whereas this population tends to be ill, they are not as critical as ICU, or post-operative patients tend to be. They are still at risk for developing hospital-acquired pneumonia, gastrointestinal delays, and muscle deconditioning. Nevertheless, the time to first ambulation and length of hospital stays could potentially be reduced if an early mobilization protocol were implemented.

Purpose Statement Purpose:

The purpose of this ___________( e.g., quantitative, quasi-experimental) project was to determine if or to what degree the implementation of _________________ (direct practice improvement/intervention) would impact ______________(what patient outcome) when compared to _______________________ among ___________(patient population)  in a ________ (setting e.g., primary care clinic, ER, OR) in ________ (state) over four-weeks.

Example:

The purpose of this quantitative, quasi-experimental quality improvement project is to determine if or to what degree the implementation of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality’s (AHRQ) Nurse-Driven Early Mobility Protocol would impact the patient’s time to first ambulation and an average length of stay for adult patients in acute medical-surgical unit compared to current practice at an urban (rural or use direction: northeaster, southeaster) in urban Kentucky over four-weeks.

OR

The purpose of this quantitative, quasi-experimental quality improvement project is to determine if or to what degree the implementation of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality’s (AHRQ) Nurse-Driven Early Mobility Protocol would impact the patient’s time to first ambulation and an average length of stay compared to current practice.  The project will take place on the adult, medical-surgical unit, at an urban (rural or use direction: northeaster, southeaster) Kentucky hospital over four-weeks.

The nurse-driven early mobilization protocol is defined as ambulating all admitted patients in the medical-surgical unit, four times a day at least 100 feet each time, irrespective of the diagnoses, unless contraindicated. The first ambulation should happen within 24 hours of admission.  The average length of hospital stay refers to the average number of days that patients spend in hospital (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, 2019). This is a measurement of the quality of care provided by the hospital.
