Hello, this is the research work in PICO format below.
bid only if you have acess to database as COCHRANE,EMBASE and CINALH
The intro can address the obvious importance of antibiotics in preventing disease and then a STRONG argument against use of antibiotics when not warranted, misuse of antibiotics, resistance issues etc.
Project to be done in MLA format.
Research question in PICO format
P: Healthy patients undergoing routine/same day surgery
I: Prophylactic preoperative antibiotics administration
C: No antibiotics administration
O: Better surgical site healing and decreased post-surgical complications
So given the risks of unwarranted antibiotics use, is it necessary for healthy patients presenting for routine/same day surgery to receive prophylactic preoperative antibiotics? Do these patients have better outcomes compared to the same patient population (P) who did not get antibiotics? So that is the gist of the research project.
As far as measuring criteria, outcomes go, better surgical site healing, decrease post-surgical complications are some that can be used. You can use more depending on what research/literature shows.
Please add these studies in the reference below to the ones you will be using for paper. Thorough literature review, conclusions, and discussion. Please also use Cochrane and CINALH and describe the key words used to search the databases etc. The whole nine yards of a research study
