PICOT Model Adaptation to Laboratory Medicine to Improve Clinical Outcomes and Student Education

From the 2022 Clinical Laboratory Educators Conference (recorded 3/16/2022)
Presented by Michael L. Bishop, MS, MLS(ASCP), Michelle Moy,MAdEd, MT(ASCP)SC, James March Mistler, MS, MLS(ASCP)CM, & Carleen Van Siclen, MS, MLS(ASCP)CM

Clinical Laboratorians and educators strive to improve patient outcomes and knowledge/problem solving skills of our students. For decades, nursing has applied the PICOT model (Patient information, Intervention, C - alternate intervention, Outcome and Time) in evidence-based medicine and individual patient cases. This presentation will discuss how to easily adapt PICOT to laboratory medicine and educational activities.

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the PICOT model and the potential applications to clinical laboratory medicine and student educational activities
  • Troubleshoot a clinical diagnostic issue using the PICOT model.
  • Given an actual clinical case, create a lesson using the PICOT model for teaching an improved outcome for a patient in a classroom setting.
