But before we get started, let's learn about how to create a strategy for finding relevant information using the PICO method.
What does PICO mean?
The first stage of any evidence-based practice process is formulating an answerable question. This forms the foundation for quality searching. A well-formulated question will facilitate the search for evidence and will assist you in determining whether the evidence is relevant to your question.

P – Populations/People/Patient/Problem
I – Intervention(s)
C – Comparison
O – Outcome
