More About This Textbook

Overview

This book explores the link between the 'corridors of power' where healthcare policy is made and the hospital, health centre or clinic where it is carried out. It encourages and empowers readers to make changes in the public's involvement at a local level and explains how this impacts positively on organisational culture. A user-friendly book written in a light and easy-to-read style, it combines theoretical arguments with tried and tested practical applications and features contributions from a wide range of experienced professionals. This is essential reading for every member of the healthcare team. It will be of particular interest to patient and public involvement leads as well as patient advice and liaison service workers, healthcare policy makers and shapers, students and patient groups.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Carole Ann Kenner, PhD, RN, FAAN (The College of New Jersey)
Description: In this health policy book, the emphasis on people "doing" policy whether they know it or not engages readers in what otherwise could be a dry topic.
Purpose: The purpose is to illustrate how an individual can use personal knowledge and life experiences to examine healthcare, organizational challenges, and ultimately impact policy.
Audience: The audience is lay readers who want a better understanding of the National Health Service (NHS), professionals in the NHS, and clinicians, managers, board members, and students across disciplines. The author has many years of experience in the NHS.
Features: Theory and the foundation for policy implementation begin the book. It then moves on to the realities of implementation, culminating in the "lived" experience of policy making. The personal journey with real life examples helps readers to understand the information and to see how policy happens. The third part of the book leads readers through various people's perspectives on what it takes to implement policy. Advocacy is highlighted, as well as the need for organizational buy-in. These cases guide the reader through the policy process. Although this book is based on a U.K. model, the information is applicable in any country.
Assessment: There are many policy books on the market, but none that use this personal narrative, "lived" experience style. The effect is to lure readers into the experience, a great way to learn!
