Learning Goal: I’m working on a nursing writing question and need an explanation

Learning Goal: I’m working on a nursing writing question and need an explanation to help me learn.PICOT is an acronym used to help develop clinical research questions and guide you in your search for evidence:P = Patient populationI = Intervention or issue of interestC = Comparison of interventions or comparison of interestsO = OutcomeT = Time frameFor example, you may wish to research the effects of interrupted sleep on cognition of ICU patients 65 or older.Using this PICOT model,In _________(P), how does __________ (I) compared to _________ (C) influence _________ (O) over ________ (T)?In ICU patients who are 65 or older, how does interrupted sleep (awakened one time or more in four hours) as compared to uninterrupted sleep influence the patient’s cognitive ability over 5 days?Assignment DirectionsBegin by selecting a topic that is of interest to you. Next, use PICOT to format possible research questions about that topic. Provide 3 possible PICOT research questions.Include the following:Title page
Provide a brief description of the topic and background information.
Explain the significance of the topic to nursing practice.
Provide 3 clearly stated PICOT questions.
Your paper should: Be 2–3 pages (not including the title page and reference page)
Use current APA format to style your paper and to cite your sources.
