Example scenarios

A series of example case scenarios for you to consider are now given. For each example, we suggest you attempt to write out a PICO question, and then expand the text to see an example we give, in the PICO format.

All of the examples used here are available in full from the University of Nottingham’s Centre for Evidence-based Veterinary Medicine website BestBETs for Vets


You can use the tool PICO.vet to help you build a well-structured and focused clinical question.
