Summary

Health care providers, especially nurses, engage in policy agenda setting, formulation, implementation, and evaluation at multiple levels – individual, system, institutional, and societal/public level. Health Policy: Application for Nurses and Other Health Care Professionals provides a comprehensive and multi-perspective approach to policy development and formulation that includes policy evaluation and research. Unlike other tests, it utilizes a condensed format without a large amount of explanatory text. Features include tables, figures, chapter summaries, and a resource list.
