NOTE:
PICOT question: Will the use of PHQ scale identify and reduce the rate of readmission of depressed patients on an in-patient psychiatry unit?

Using the PICOT acronym, my potential components to address my clinical problem are as follows:
Population of interest (P)- Depressed patients (adult population) admitted on an in-patient psychiatric unit at the Cincinnati VA Medical Center

(CVAMC).
Intervention (I) -The use of Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ) depression scale to predict and reduce readmission rate on an in-patient

psychiatric unit. Manea et. al., (2012) relayed that the PHQ scale is a reliable and valid tool in carrying out the diagnosis of depression

among individuals.
Comparison intervention or group (C)- This could be inpatient admission of patients without the diagnosis of depression on the medical unit.

However, this group may not be included in the study.
Outcome (O)- The outcome of the intervention is to predict and reduce the rate of re-hospitalization among depressed patients on the In-Patient

Psychiatry unit and serve as an important tool in guiding treatment decisions.
