Discussion Question – Use of Media in Promoting Policy Change

Discussion Prompt

Critique an example of a professional organization’s use of media to promote a health policy agenda. Discuss attributes of success or lack thereof. [A RECENT TOPIC HAS BEEN FULL PRACTICE AUTONOMY OF FAMILY NURSE PRACTITIONERS without the current physician supervision requirement.]

The California Association for Nurse Practitioners (CANP) has been active in this legislation. I provided the link to CANP that should give you much of the information needed.
