Summary

Advanced Practice Nurses (APNs) today perform multiple roles as providers of care, researchers, educators, administrators, political activists, consultants, and policy-makers. Your actions will set the direction for what health care will become in future generations. With Health Policy and Politics: A Nurse's Guide, you will understand the whole policy process - not just the legislative process, a single law or a single regulation, but as a broad range of decision points, strategies, activities, and outcomes. Nurses must be a part of the decision making process in the development of health care policy to make a permanent impact on the delivery of health care. Presented with theoretical foundations, brought to life through actual nurses' experiences and nursing, the contributed chapters are written by advanced practice nurses. Their unique combination of theoretical knowledge of the policy process and expert nursing experience offers readers a dynamic perspective of health policy. Health Policy and Politics: A Nurse's Guide will show you why nurses need to be involved in the policy process, how major health concerns are brought to the attention of governmeny, how legislation really happens, why the regulatory power of government agencies cannot be underestimated and must be understood, how vague goals and objectives can be used to design workable programs, how a policy or program is implemented, including barriers and facilitators to implementation, issues critical to policy evaluation - qualitative and quantitative issues encountered in research, how to locate resources and evaluate their worth, and how a comparative approach can be used, along with an example of a model for the study of policy at an international level. An Instructor's Manual for Health Policy and Politics is also available.
