This assignment directly supports Section V: Evaluation and Reporting of your final project.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FROM PROFESSOR:
Ladies and gentlemen, we have come to what I think is the busiest week. This week you have the Check-In Journal and the PDSA. To help you with these assignments, I recorded my announcement and explanation of the assignments.
Week 7 Recorded Overview– https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dBFqrLCWu2Y
The PDSA is a formal APA paper. All APA formatting is required.
Here a link to help with the parts of the PDSA: https://www.ahrq.gov/health-literacy/improve/precautions/tool2b.html.
Use the explanation in the template I posted and use this site to help understand the parts of the PDSA. You must be detailed and to the point with your PDSA. More words are not necessarily better. I am sure you have heard that before. I recommend writing your PDSA paper, read it, and eliminate content that does not add value to the paper.
