Instructions

The next section will have the heading “PICOT Question”. Here you will write the Evidenced-Based Practice question as updated from your previous submissions. The next part is the “table of evidence” below. And lastly, a “reference” page. Your paper is aligned vertically (portrait), as usual, but the table is to be inserted horizontally (landscaped). Please do not re-create the table. Just use this one below keeping all the headings in place and writing only in non-shaded fields. Remember to delete these instructions.¬†
