Design a PDSA project to improve the issue I identified (please see the attached

Design a PDSA project to improve the issue I identified (please see the attached file, I identified an issue for this project) with details of what resources I might need, what stakeholders should be on the team, and what you would suggest to improve the issue. Review what a PDSA cycle is and what you as a leader of an improvement team would need to work on an issue. Be specific about describing the issue you want to improve, include what is wrong today. Include what baseline data you would need to evaluate the current state and how you would collect that data. Identify the stakeholders you would want on your team. Next provide the plan to improve the issue and how you would determine if the plan worked to improve the issue, for example how long it would take, what data you would need to determine improvement, etc. The issue that you pick to improve can be something easy to fix. I want you to go through this process to better understand and apply the steps in an improvement cycle. Write this up in APA style, Times New Roman 12-point font, double spaced, about 3 to 5 pages not counting the title and reference pages.
I have attached some resources for you to use to help understand the PDSA Cycle.
“The Model for Improvement, * developed by Associates in Process Improvement, is a simple yet powerful tool for accelerating improvement. The model is not meant to replace change models that organizations may already be using, but rather to accelerate improvement. This model has been used very successfully by hundreds of health care organizations in many countries to improve many different health care processes and outcomes.
The model has two parts:
Three fundamental questions, which can be addressed in any order.
The Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) cycle** to test changes in real work settings. The PDSA cycle guides the test of a change to determine if the change is an improvement.”
