Do not try to tell the reader if the integration effort is good or bad; just present research about this new direction of healthcare.
  2. Research a drug that is either in common use or is new to healthcare. Do not try to tell the reader if the drug is good or bad; just present what’s known about the drug, including its history, uses and precautions, and what information is out there about it.
