|PCC (Population (or participants)/Concept/Context) framework is recommended by JBI to identify the main concepts in your primary review questions. The framework will then inform your search strategy. Breaking down your question in this way allows you to check for any potentially missed inclusion and exclusion criteria for your protocol.|
Topic: Models of nurse-led care in chronic disease in high-income countries
Primary review questions:
|PCC element||Definition (per JBI Reviewer's Manual Ch. 11)||Example|
"Important characteristics of participants, including age and other qualifying criteria."
You may not need to include this element unless your question focuses on a specific condition or cohort.
"The core concept examined by the scoping review should be clearly articulated to guide the scope and breadth of the inquiry. This may include details that pertain to elements that would be detailed in a standard systematic review, such as the "interventions" and/or "phenomena of interest" and/or "outcomes"."
Use the ideas from your primary questions to determine your concept.
Nurse-led care models
|Context||"May include... cultural factors such as geographic location and/or specific racial or gender-based interests. In some cases, context may also encompass details about the specific setting."||High income countries|
|* NA here, as our example considers chronic diseases broadly, not a specific condition/population - such as women with chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder.|
