- Draft a possible problem statement.
- Describe a problem. Explain why it is a problem, and why it is significant to your discipline. Use the literature you gathered as support for why this is a problem in relation to your practice. The problem should focus on the resolution of an issue significant to improving patient care.
- Draft a purpose statement in relation to your problem statement that states what you hope to accomplish if you implemented this project.
