1. This is what the paper is about
Topic 1: Define and Describe Your Foreground and Background Information
PICOT question: Does repositioning of bed bound patients every two hours decrease the risk of pressure ulcer versus repositioning every 5 hours?
2. Need to be 1 page with peer-reviewed nursing articles that are less than 5 years. Please give 4 references
In Unit 1 you identified a PICOT question. Using the same question, rewrite the question for your peers and define the difference between foreground and background information as it relates to your PICOT question. Also, provide a general overview on what evidence is available
Difference Between Foreground and Background
Foreground and background information must be distinguished for effective evidence-based PICOT development.
- Foreground information can be answered based on scientific evidence about diagnosing, treating, or even assisting patients. This would be the actual clinical question being researched. So, for example, the question of which analgesic works best to reduce a fever in a child would be foreground information
- Background information is broader in scope as it helps develop the foreground question. For this example on analgesic questioning, the background information would be “how do analgesics work in children?”
