The first COW-nundrum contest was held October 3-23, 2016. We received 41 questions from 23 nurses in many different areas!
Here are some examples of questions received:
- What is the correct use of ice packs as external cooling method for fever management of inpatient adult patients on a general medicine unit?
- Are seizure pads really beneficial? If yes, under what circumstances?
- How many times should a patient be "poked" for an IV or lab before other options like VAT, anesthesia or OR placement preoperatively are considered?

What Happened with My Questions/Ideas?
All nurses who submitted entries received a cowpie candy and a certificate. Each entry was reviewed by the Nursing Research and EBP Council members and a table was created to share the questions that were asked and provide some information about the topic of inquiry.
