To understand synthesis it is important that you read the lectures for this week. Synthesis is a skill that takes practice and the lectures discuss this process.
On the discussion board, using a minimum of two articles that are supporting your PICOT question, submit one paragraph synthesizing the research into clear, concise statements without separately reviewing each of the studies in the paragraph—but by paraphrasing and synthesizing the work that was done.
My PICOT QUESTION:
