actively participate in policy development and implementation in order to advocate for policies that improve the health of the public and/or the nursing profession.
Introduction:??For this assessment, you will actively participate in policy development and implementation in order to advocate for policies that improve the health of the public and/or the nursing profession. You will utilize both a top-down and a bottom-up approach, bringing the nursing perspective to policy makers and stakeholders. You will identify the values and ethical perspectives that underpin your position and develop criteria to evaluate the success of your work. By the conclusion of the assessment, you will have a policy brief that can be sent to decision makers and a plan to work with an organization/community to promote policy change at the local level.??First, you will write a reflection on the following: 1) why you selected the health or nursing profession policy issue; 2) your values and the ethical positions that underpin your perspectives; and 3) the criteria you will use to evaluate the success (outcomes) of your proposed policy change. You will then write a policy brief for policy makers or stakeholders on the health or nursing profession issue with the purpose of initiating or supporting a top-down approach to policy. You will support your position with nursing research. Finally, you will create a plan from a bottom-up approach to promote a policy change within a community or organization utilizing the principles of community-based participatory research (CBPR). Please use the same issue throughout your project.??Requirements:
A. Analyze the values and ethics (suggested length of 2–3 pages) of a policy issue by doing the following:
1. Analyze a health or nursing profession policy issue that impacts a group of people and requires a policy change.
a. Discuss why you selected the issue.
b. Discuss the issue’s relevance to health or the nursing profession, using two pieces of academically appropriate literature from the last five years.
2. Analyze how your values impact your position on the policy issue.
a. Discuss the ethical principle (e.g., autonomy, beneficence, non-maleficence, justice) or theory (e.g., utilitarianism based on consequentialism; nursing and midwifery code of conduct based on deontological theory) that underpins your perspective.
