Health Service Planning and Policy-making
A Toolkit for Nurses and Midwives (7 Modules)
The purpose of this toolkit, consisting of 7 booklets, is to provide nurses and midwives with tools to effectively participate in and influence health care planning and policy-making. The tool-kit has been designed for use by any nurse or midwife who has an interest in advocating for change in their work environment. This includes chief nurses and midwives who are in a position to impact policy decision-making at a country level, as well as clinical nurses and midwives advocating for community development or other programs at the operational level. Each module in the tool-kit has objectives and reference lists and provides definitions, examples, exercises and accompanying guiding exercise sheets. Additional supportive materials are provided in Information and Skills Sheets.
