This text provides both a conceptual orientation to science/research shaping health policy as well as an operational approach to strategies for linking research to policy. The book will also influence policy makers at the organizational, community, state, national and international levels. The book will include multiple examples of findings from nursing research programs that have influenced health policy decisions and programs. These examples illustrate how health policy can be positively shaped, through the use of strong recommendations for work environments that influence patient outcomes, changes in state programs that enhance health for children and other advances in shaping health policy. This book is designed to provide a quick resource for practicing emergency room nurses, pediatric critical care nurses, school nurses, nurse practitioners, and other health care providers. Student practitioners will also find the content helpful and readily useable as a reference guide. The book provides current, concise and easy-to-use information in short chapters that will assist practitioners with the prevention, identification, and management of victims and offenders. This content can be integrated into advanced family and pediatric curricula and can also be used in primary, community, and acute care pediatric and family settings as a useful, ongoing reference.
