Advanced Levels of Clinical Inquiry and Systematic Reviews
Create a 6- to 7-slide PowerPoint presentation in which you do the following:
- Identify and briefly describe your chosen clinical issue of interest.
- Describe how you developed a PICO(T) question focused on your chosen clinical issue of interest.
- Identify the four research databases that you used to conduct your search for the peer-reviewed articles you selected.
- Provide APA citations of the four peer-reviewed articles you selected.
- Describe the levels of evidence in each of the four peer-reviewed articles you selected, including an explanation of the strengths of using systematic reviews for clinical research. Be specific and provide examples.

In hospitalized patients, does removing Urinary Catheters less than 48 hours after placement reduces the risk of developing Catheters-Associated Urinary Tract Infection (CAUTI) compared to having urinary catheters in greater than 72 hours? Formulating clinical questions in a structured, specific way such as PICOT format, assists clinicians to find the right evidence to answer questions to decrease uncertainty (Melnyk & Fineout-Overholt, 2018).
