Overview

Named a 2013 Doody's Core Title!

2011 AJN Book of the Year Winner in Nursing Research!

This is a much needed addition to nursing's arsenal of policy books. It is the first to really examine the need for scientific evidence to underpin policy.

--Doody's

A must-read for health care policy makers, as well as nursing students, faculty, and professionals, this groundbreaking text provides actual strategies for translating nursing research to health policy at all levels of policy-making. The editors, both leaders in nursing research, provide key findings from research programs that have positively influenced health policy decisions and programs at community, state, national, and international levels.

The first compilation of information linking health policy and nursing research, this text presents perspectives and frameworks for understanding the processes bridging research and health policy; multiple factors influencing the processes; and actual examples of National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR)-funded research that has influenced health policy programs.

Key Features:

  • Examples of NINR-funded research that has been used at all levels to influence health policy, including settings, populations, and age spectrums
  • Models and strategies for linking research and health policy
  • Lessons learned from pioneer nurse scientists who have shaped health policy with nursing research
  • Recommendations for improving nurses' work environments for better patient outcomes
