You are required to take your research idea that you developed in Module 6 which was Elder Abse and Neglect and turn it into a formal paper for a small journal in your field. Your colleagues were so interested in your research that they encouraged you to try to find a way to publish it. Your assignment is to develop a short, thesis-based research essay written in a formal style, appropriate for an academic setting.
Your research essay should be 1000 to 1250 words, include a strong thesis, and incorporate three to five scholarly sources. Your goal is to use your research topic from Module 6 and develop it into an interesting and engaging essay that is both informative and persuasive about the issue you chose for your research topic.
