DOC/714S v1 Problem Statement Guide The problem in a doctoral dissertation is the most critical component of the study. The problem explains the rationale for the study and validates its importance. Below are the steps for writing a problem statement. At the end of this guide, you will have the opportunity to create your own problem statement. Step 1. Provide background information. Step 2. State the problem. Step 3. Provide scholarly support for the problem. Step 4. Indicate the potential benefit of addressing the problem. Sample Problem Statement Breast cancer and the harsh treatment for the disease affects not only patients but also their caretakers. Caregivers face physical and mental challenges while continuing to assume significant caretaking responsibilities. Caregiving often becomes a full-time responsibility, which can last for many years. In the instance of a wife with breast cancer, husbands are often the primary caregiver. A majority of caregivers report that caregiving is a burden physically, psychologically, economically, socially, and personally (LeSeure & Chongkham-ang, 2015). The problem is that male caregivers have a demanding and exhausting caretaking schedule resulting in failure to practice their own good self-care (LeSeure & Chongkham-ang, 2015). According to Family Caregiver Alliance (2018), many caregivers are aware that taking care of their own health means providing better care for the patient, but caregivers often feel guilty when choosing themselves first. As a result of failing to take care of themselves, caregivers often become psychologically and physically ill, reducing their ability to care for their ailing spouse (LeSeure & Chongkham-ang, 2015). Gaining male caregivers’ perspectives on barriers preventing good self-care could lead to the development of interventions and resources for male caregivers to begin practicing good self-care.
