  9. After you have completed the health assessment section, evaluate your information.

A good informational website to help with evaluation is: https://www.cdc.gov/getsmart/community/improving-prescribing/program-development-eval/program-development/
  10. In Course Resources, you will find worksheets to help you think about who your health evaluation will affect. This was taken from: https://www.cdc.gov/getsmart/community/improving-prescribing/program-development-eval/program-development/
    Complete and add this to your assignment. This portion should include a plan of action.
  11. A reference page with your sources of information. You should use your textbook as one resource, and include at least 4 other sources.

Compile your written paper using proper APA 6th edition format. Check over your work before submitting to assure clarity, order, and accuracy. Grammar, spelling, and punctuation will also be graded. As long as you include the areas above, you may order the information as you wish as long as it “flows” and is rational. Each component of the assignment should be organized in thought, have a professional look, in a logical order, and be thorough.
