Asking the Clinical Question This presentation provides an inside look at how a team of researchers came together with a keen interest in developing an evidence-based approach to find answers to a common clinical problem, how to prevent cardiovascular disease in women between the ages of 40 to 65 years of age. Finding or Creating the Evidence. We took a few turns to get to the point of clearly defining a focused clinical question -- from focusing an initial clinical question, looking for evidence, and putting together a research team to changing strategy in order to create evidence that was not available by conducting a clinical trial. Along the way we learned a number of valuable lessons. Lessons Learned. The principal investigator should determine how to assess needed expertise for the project; when and how much to orient and/or teach graduate assistants about data retrieval; and, find a place to call your own (space for the team to do its work). Also, important is determining the resources needed to support a clinical trail, whether or not they are available, how much they will cost, and assesing feasibility of conducting the study within a reasonable budget and time frame. An important step in addressing these issues is to first carry out a pilot study.
