Introduce the Project: This section briefly overviews the project focus or practice problem, why this project is worth conducting, and how this project will be completed.
Background of the Project: The background section explains both the history and the present state of the problem and project focus.
Problem Statement (must be templated): It was not known if or to what degree the implementation of __________________would impact ______________ when compared to _______________ among ___________ (population).
Purpose of the Project (must be templated): The purpose of this ___________( i.e., quantitative pretest posttest) project was to determine if or to what degree the implementation of _________________ (intervention) would impact ______________(what) when compared to _______________________ among ___________(population) in a ________ (setting i.e., primary care clinic, ER, OR) in ________ (state) over _______ (time).
Clinical Question(s): In a paragraph prior to listing the clinical questions, include a discussion of the clinical questions, relating them to the problem statement.
Templated statement: To what degree does the implementation of _______________ (intervention) impacts __________________ (what) when compared to _____________ among _____________ (population) patients in a ______ (setting) in _______ (state) over 4 weeks?
