Therefore, you need to supply data and information that supports your choice of POI. You do this by providing background information, statistical support, and specific information about the POI. The paper should not be purely anecdotal information from you or your sources. The paper should focus on the following: Consider the following questions as you justify the reasons you have chosen this POI: a.     Why is this POI important to the field of nursing? Why is this POI important to study? b.     How does this POI affect the staff/patients/clients? c.     What is the current state of this POI in health care? d.     Is this POI a local, national, or global concern?        2. Make sure to discuss in detail your plan for how you will research this POI. a.     Identify who you would need to contact or meet with to investigate the problem further. b.     Discuss what your plans would be for interviewing staff, other departments, or other disciplines if you were actually in charge of managing this POI at a facility or in the community. This is just interviewing – there should be no formal survey or data collection as this course is not research.  c.     How do you plan to search the current literature for appropriate research studies on the topic?          3. Be sure to identify how specific theory and knowledge from each of the following areas contributed to your ability to research and plan a course of action for your chosen POI.

Step 1 – Identify a professional to interview Step 2 – Create a list of 10 questions specific to your POI and the professional you have chosen to interview. Questions should be open-ended. Demographic questions do not count and that information should be included in the introductory paragraph of the assessment.
