—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

Editorial Reviews

Doody Reviews
Reviewer: Carole Ann Kenner, DNS, MSN, BSN (Northeastern University Bouve College of Health Sciences)
Description: This book presents health policy in a unique light - that of its scientific underpinnings. It moves from the science and the gaps in knowledge to exemplars of research that have influenced policy and, finally, to lessons learned in how to use research findings to support policy work.
Purpose: The purpose is to convince nurses that the use of research for policy work is critical to the success of the adoption or passage of policies.
Audience: The intended audience is nursing students at all educational levels, faculty, and practicing nurses.
Features: An overview of science/research findings and how they have been used to influence policy begins the book. The next sections provide concrete examples of programs of research that resulted in policies, such as Dr. Mary Naylor's work and transitional care. The final section illustrates lessons learned and what has worked, and discusses some surprises in how to use science to inform policy, an example of which is telehealth and the dramatic change in linking people in their homes with health professionals.
Assessment: 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. The two editors are pioneers in research and have led nursing research to new levels. It is fitting they do the same in underscoring the important role nurses have in using their programs of research to develop policy agendas.
