About this book

This eagerly anticipated book equips readers to understand the dynamics of policy processes, relevant decision-making and the significance of key decision-makers. It also emphasizes the usefulness of negotiation and diplomacy skills in order to support the development of an advanced nursing practice (ANP) initiative that involves the identification of pivotal issues to ensure that nurses unlock their full potential. Topics include a definition of strategic planning, essential factors to bear in mind, and frameworks to use in the context of formulating effective policies. By addressing outcome indicators and research, this volume offers a comprehensive approach to coordinated planning, and will appeal to advanced practice nurses, healthcare planners and policymakers, as well as administrators at hospitals and healthcare institutions.

Reviews

“It is intended as a reference for healthcare professionals, healthcare decision‐makers, key stakeholders, and others interested in the advancement of nursing worldwide. The author has extensive experience and is well spoken in the area of advanced nursing practice in the international arena. The book is well organized and concisely written. … This is a unique book and a valuable addition to the advancement of nursing internationally.” (Kathleen M. Woodruff, Doody's Book Reviews, February, 2018) “Madrean Schober’s second volume provides a thoughtful approach to understanding that the topic of strategic planning is integral to understanding and developing advanced nursing roles on a global scale. The text explores areas associated with strategic planning including healthcare policy, politics, effective change, policy analysis, and types of policy decision making associated with advanced nursing roles. The references are comprehensive in scope. This work also serves as an important reference guide for those interested in understanding advanced nursing roles, those interested in creating healthcare policy for development and implementation of these roles, and those interested in assessing the roles through strategic planning processes. M. Schober’s work offers a relevant resource in the critical but often poorly understood area of strategic planning.  What an amazing and unique compendium for the nursing community!” (Andrea Renwanz Boyle, PhD, ANP, FNAP Professor & Chair, Department of Nursing, Dominican University of California, USA)
