Tittle: Campaign for Political Advocacy
This week we focused on healthcare policy initiatives and ways in which nurses can advocate and influence change. For our discussion, please complete the following:
1. Identify a healthcare issue within your community and explain the issue to your class colleagues.
2. Describe the type of healthcare policy you would advocate for in an effort to change this issue. 3. What type of campaign would you need to launch in order to gather a network of support? 4. Compose a Tweet that describes what you have shared with your class colleagues. Remember, Twitter only allows for 140 characters so you will need to be concise.
