Course Project: Part 2—Developing a Needs Statement
In Week 1, you described a program for the health problem and identified the right division for the program.
Week 2 Tasks
This week, you will develop a needs statement, which provides factual information for understanding the health problem. A problem statement is one of the most crucial parts of your concept paper. This is the first section your audience will read, and it will set the tone for your proposed program. A well-written problem statement should include the nature of the problem, who the problem affects, the current impact of the problem, and future consequences of the problem, if left unaddressed.
