Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Carole A. Kenner, PhD, RN, FAAN (Council of International Neonatal Nurses)
Description: This is an interactive book designed to teach undergraduate students about health policy.
Purpose: The purpose is to engage undergraduate students in exercises aimed at increasing their awareness of healthcare issues.
Audience: Undergraduate students in a variety of disciplines are the intended audience.
Features: The book covers the typical policy topics such as the role of government in healthcare, public health's role, the role of health professionals, financing, technology impact, and legal aspects. The unique features are the learning activities such as crossword puzzles, vocabulary lists, case studies requiring student responses, and Internet activities which require students to peruse the web. No other book is so interactive and very basic. Given the role of nurses in healthcare, it is surprising that nurses are defined in a few pages and the shortage, a key feature of health delivery issues, is discussed in one paragraph. This is a glaring omission.
Assessment: This book covers the same topics as most health policy books such as Policy and Politics in Nursing and Health Care, 5th edition, Mason et al. (Elsevier, 2007), but it is aimed at the undergraduate. It is very basic and should be supplemented by current policy articles if students are to gain a clear understanding of the complexities of health policy.
