Relied upon by faculty as a centerpiece for their health policy courses, the newly updated Fourth Edition of Health Policy and Politics: A Nurse's Guide continues to expand on the relationship between health policy and politics as they relate to the field of nursing. A timely and relevant revision, the Fourth Edition includes a completely updated chapter on economics and contains the most current information on the politics surrounding health policy. Practicing clinicians and administrators will learn how health policy affects them and how to get politically active. Health Policy walks readers through the process of public policy making, including agenda setting, government response, program response, implementation, and evaluation and teaches nurses in advanced practice how to deliver quality health care by appropriate providers in a cost-effective manner. Furthermore, IOM's Future of Nursing paper is integrated throughout the text.
