...This is book is written in the UK by an academic at Middlesex hospital. It is so apt for today’s nurses and following the Francis report. It also makes the links between policy and practice clear...
This has been the most fantastic text book for my module despite the fact that the students are not on a nursing course. It is pertinent and encompasses so many of the areas of policy that are contemporary within health and social care. I have found it invaluable and will be using it again this year.
this wasa great textbook for the students looking at the politcal aspect of nursing.. recommended for students and quailfed staff
This is a coherent textbook which will engage nursing students and enable them to understand and apply the complex world of health policy to their practice. It should also provide a reference point for their future practice and help them engage with this area. This is a much needed aspect of nurisng practice.
This is a useful resource for student nurses, clearly explaining health policy in nursing practice.
Will be on recommended list for a new module commencing next academic year.
Health policy is clearly explained, avoiding use of excessive jargon. The author manages to distil the complexity of the subject area making the book a useful resource for pre and post registration programmes. It encourages students to relate the policy to practice with useful examples of case studies making the book a useful resource .
Clear overview of key concepts with good application to practice.
Post Francis this is such a useful book that can be used to supplement material delivered in both pre and post reg education. Makes the links between policy and practice explicit.
I will use the mentioned book for preparing my classes.
Very relevant book to the course, which enables students to understand health policy in nursing practice.
A GOOD INTRODUCTION FOR STUDENTS TO GRASP THE APPLICATION OF POLICIES TO PRACTICE
Helpful resource for student nurses entering their programme. This book sets the scene in relation to essential insight into health policy.
I was absolutely delighted to come across this book. this has justified my stance on why health policy should be part of all nursing fields and post-registration curricula. the case studies are excellent, the text maps across the new NMC (2010) domains for pre-reg nurses and it makes it explicit that health care professionals have a role and influence on the political landscape. Excellent!
