In today's world, health policy is not only complicated but also fundamental to the nursing process. That's what makes the recently published Health Policy and Politics: A Nurse's Guide, Sixth Edition by Jeri A. Milstead and Nancy M. Short so important.
Going beyond the simple considerations of the legislative process, it covers the lesser known touchstones of policy creation, including agenda setting, gauging governmental responses, designing programs and policies, and evaluating policy impact. The Sixth Edition also addresses key intersections of healthcare economics, regulation, informatics and big data, global health, and interprofessional practice. What's more, a robust collection of case studies brings theoretical frameworks together with contemporary healthcare issues, offering nursing students and faculty the opportunity to discuss interventions.
New to the Sixth Edition:
- A new chapter, “Insider’s Guide to Policy Engagement,” presents strategies for effectively engaging with policy makers and navigating the political landscape
- A new co-editor and four new authors offer expert insights and analysis into public policy
- An expanded emphasis on visual imagery, including the CDC’s policy process model, helps students gain a deeper understanding of key concepts

- A broader consideration of policymaking at both the state and federal levels
- Each new print copy includes Navigate 2 Premier Access that unlocks a comprehensive eBook, interactive lectures, student practice activities and assessments, a full suite of instructor resources, and learning analytics reporting tools
