Provides a nursing focus within an interdisciplinary approach, which intertwines to create an understanding of economics, politics, and policy in relation to health care.

Contributors to this text offer future nurses and healthcare providers keen insight about clinical practice and its derivation from regulation, laws, and policies that have roots in public policy and politics. The book also offers practical knowledge on how healthcare professionals can get involved and be proactive in the policy that directly affects their profession and patients. Key pedagogical features include chapter objectives, summaries, examples, boxed articles, case studies, review questions, key terms, photographs, and a tool kit that includes a "skills" section of how-tos.
