In Week 3, you selected a current health care problem or issue from the provided options for this assignment. Research your topic, and develop an annotated bibliography to document your resources.


Reminder: You will use your selected problem or issue again in the Week 9 assignment. The purpose of an annotated bibliography is to document a list of research references, along with key information about each; the detail about the reference is the annotation. Developing this annotated bibliography will create a foundation of knowledge about your chosen problem or issue.




You were introduced to this assignment in Week 3, where you were asked to conduct research in the Capella library to find a total of three scholarly, peer-reviewed articles in relation to your selected health care problem or issue for your annotated bibliography. If you do not have three articles located at this point, make sure you do before beginning your assignment.


Important Notes: Conduct a library search and refer to the appropriate library guide link listed for your program as needed. (Health Care Administration Undergraduate Library Research Guide, Public Health Undergraduate Library Research Guide, or BSN Program Library Research Guide). Be sure to review journal articles published within the past three years.
