What are the six steps towards becoming an evidence-based practitioner?
1) Convert a clinical need into an answerable question
2) Document the internal evidence
3) Search for and find the best external evidence to answer the question

6) Evaluate and audit your performance (question everything)
Step 1 on becoming an evidence based practitioner is...

What is PICO and what step is it part of for becoming an evidence-based practitioner?
