- Describe each element of your PICOT question in one or two sentences, being sure to address all of the following:
- P-Population and problem– What is the nursing practice concern or problem and whom does it affect?

- O–Outcome– Very specifically, how will you know that the intervention worked? Think about how you will measure the outcome.
- T–Time frame– What is the Timeframe involved for the EBP initiative or the target date of completion?

The practice concern identified is the increased hospital readmission rates in patients with heart failure. Hospital readmission is of significant concern as they impact the cost and patient outcomes negatively. For patients with heart failure, persistent 30-day readmission rates is a great concern. Evidence has reported that about 20% of the patients are readmitted with the 30-days of discharge while approximately 50% of the patients are readmitted within 6 months of discharge (O’Connor, 2017).Click link below to purchase full tutorial at $10
