The signature assignment will be broken up into three steps: STEP 1 – Introduction and Overview of the Problem; STEP 2 Project Purpose Statement, Background & Significance and PICOt Formatted Clinical Project Question; and STEP 3 Literature Review and Critical Appraisal of the Literature. The three steps, when completed, will be combined in the final Signature Assignment formal paper in Week 8.
