Health Science

Problem-solving and decision making are important in the health care arena, as well as in your own daily life. The five-step problem-solving process can be found in your text, pages 32-34. The five steps are; Identify the problem, Gather Information, Create Alternatives, Choose and Alternative and Take Action, and Evaluate and Revise as Needed.

Choose a problem in your own life that you would like to work on and apply the five steps of the problem-solving process. I suggest one short paragraph for each of the five steps.
