Overview

This research-based text contains contributions from the foremost experts in the field in order to provide detailed information on health policy and politics as they relate to the field of nursing and, more specifically, to the advanced practice nurse. Health Policy and Politics covers the entire policy making process -- not just legislation -- including agenda setting, government response, and program design. Actual nursing research and details of nurses' experiences bring the theoretical content to life, and help readers in the transition from theory to practice. This book can be used to initiate conversations about issues of policy and nurses' opportunities and responsibilities throughout the process, and will serve as an important and often-consulted reference as health care continues to evolve.
