Health Policy / Edition 1 available in Paperback
Health care providers frequently engage in setting policy agenda at the individual, systems, institutional, or public level. Health Policy: Application for Nurses and Other Health Care Professionals provides an overview of the policymaking process within a variety of settings including academia, clinical practice, communities, and various health care systems. By including both policy evaluation and research, the author provides a comprehensive and multi-perspective approach to developing and formulating effective health care policy.
Unlike other texts, Health Policy: Application for Nurses and Other Health Care Professionals utilizes a condensed format without a large amount of explanatory text. Topics include governmental overviews and roles, policy formulation and analysis, public health, political theory and practice, ethical perspectives, and policy institutes.
