Now for clarification: In an overview of the course we have examined the process of developing policies from a specific lens, i.e. the US health care system and the role of the nurse as advocate and leader. This focused on heath care delivery and finance; can you recall several of the issues discussed? How did health care change specific to mental health disparities, women’s reproductive? There are many other concerns within the communities, these do not stand alone; there is government involvement, workplace concerns (safety, staffing). The introduction to our associations, and consider how coalitions provided a positive view of how to solve problems.
My hope is to see critical thinking, with creative writing indicative of the leadership and advocate role.
