Evidence Based Integration Paper
For this project, you will take on the role of a nurse practitioner treating a patient with a chronic condition. Your patient is not completely satisfied with the treatments you’ve tried and asks about a specific alternative therapy. Unfamiliar with these sorts of therapies, you decide to do some research before making recommendation. In this case, you get to decide what condition your patient has and which intervention he or she is interested in trying. Your objective is to determine whether or not you would recommend the regular treatment either alone or in combination with alternative treatment. The paper should not be more than 4 pages excluding the title page and references. APA format is required with a professional paper.
