To complete this week, after reading chapter two in Melnyk and reviewing the lectures you submit a 2-3 page paper that explores the background of your issue (Constipation in elderly). For this paper #1 you will be defining this issue or disease using the literature.  It will end with the PICOT question.  The parts of your paper should include:

  • Introduction
  • Definition
  • Epidemiology
  • Clinical Presentation
  • Complications
  • Diagnosis
  • Conclusion with PICOT Question

  • State your PICOT question.
  • Indicate in parentheses after each segment, what part of PICOT the preceding words represent.
  • For example: In patients recently discharged from the hospital following care for heart failure (P), do hand-off calls by the nurse to the primary care provider using the SBAR format (situation, background, assessment, recommendation) (I) compared to no calls (C) decrease readmission rates (O) over a one year period (T).

The issue I chose is “Constipation in elderly”.

My background question is “Why are elderly prone to develop problems related to constipation compared to younger adults?” (NB: you can adjust this question if you think this is not good  enough).
