This course provides nurses with an understanding of how they can influence the decisions and policies that are most important to them and the people they care for. Nurses who understand policy development are well equipped to influence decision-making about professional practice issues in their workplaces and to contribute to the development of health and nursing policy. The course offers a critical examination of how decisions about health and nursing policies are made at different levels, from the point of care to the federal and provincial governments, as well as an overview of the important policy issues and strategies impacting Ontario’s health care system. Special attention will be given to how nurses work with their nursing colleagues and other stakeholders to utilize their knowledge and expertise to influence policy development both in their workplaces and on committees advising managers and/or government representatives.
