PICOT Selection Guidelines


  • Choose a population that you have access to through your chosen site.
  • Avoid directly sampling a vulnerable population. If your project involves a vulnerable population, consider how else you might impact care delivery without including the vulnerable population in the direct design of your project.
  • Make sure you can link the population to a direct practice improvement that can be measured through patient and practice outcomes.
  • Ensure you are specific enough that the inclusion and exclusion criteria are evident.



  • Remember, your intervention must be based on a sufficient amount of evidence. Do not base education, interventions, or practices on a concept that is not well-supported in literature. You are to translate existing knowledge into practice through your application of the intervention.
  • Look for valid and reliable tools for your intervention.



  • Determine how you can compare your intervention to a lack of the intervention or standard of care.
  • Ensure you are able to measure what happens when you introduce your intervention as compared to when it is not introduced or before it was introduced.



  • Determine if your outcome can be objectively measured.
  • Select an established, valid, and reliable tool for measurement.



  • Determine if you can complete the project in a meaningful way without a lengthy implementation and data collection period.(any time from 4 to 10 weeks)
