Health Care Policy and Politics
The study of political, social, economic and ethical influences within the health care delivery system. Special attention is given to how change occurs and to how government (local, state, federal, global) regulations, stakeholders, consumerism, and court, agency and legislative actions impact on health care. Interprofessional collaboration is explored in achieving policy change. Incorporating research findings into policy change with the masters prepared nurse in a leadership role is explored.
