Part One

I believe for this post we were supposed to identify our independent and dependent variable. The PICO question is made up of both the independent and dependent variable however, I think Dr. Elder wanted us to clearly explain the variables of our study to ensure we are on the right track for our proposal. The independent variable is the cause and corresponds to the “I” in the PICO question (Polit & Beck, 2017). I believe that your independent variable would be the two trained clinical officers who are assigned patients in the nursing home. I think you need to elaborate a little more on this intervention. How is having two clinical trained officers at a nursing home going to have an effect in reducing nosocomial infections? Are nursing homes currently required to have trained clinical staff? As Dr. Elder explained the independent variable should be a nursing intervention. Dependent variable is the outcome or the “O” of the PICO (Polit & Beck, 2017). I don’t think your dependent variable could be “a change in proposal to show some change in strategies”. A more objective dependent variable for your proposal may be a decrease of nosocomial infections.
