Asking is fundamental to the evidence-based decision-making process. A well-built question includes five parts, referred to as PICOT that identify the patient problem or population (P), intervention (I), comparison (C), outcome (O), and timeframe (T).
The effects of aromatherapy on postoperative nausea and vomiting.
Specific PICOT-formatted research question:
Among postoperative patients, does the use of aromatherapy as a nursing intervention compared to no aromatherapy lead to decreased nausea and vomiting over a 30-day period?
