Week 3 Discussion 1: Identifying Research Gaps by Interviewing an Expert Clinician Value: 100 points Due: Create your initial post by Day 3, and reply to at least two of your peers by Day 7. Grading Category: Discussions Note: In this type of discussion, you will not see the responses of your peers until after you have posted your own initial post.
