Particular Requirements
1. Examine previous efforts made by others to address the healthcare policy issue of your choice. What outcome did their activities in relation to this policy problem have? Why does nursing need to address this issue?
2. Which local, state, and federal lawmakers are involved in the policy problem you’ve chosen? How can you get in touch with your legislator? Make sure to single out a legislator who you are aware is concerned about your issue.
3. How will you approach making your case to the policymaker? How, when, and where?
4. What message do you wish to convey to the politician or policymaker you have chosen? Can you tell a gripping “story”? Can you express your enthusiasm for and knowledge of the policy issue? Can you explain the results of fundamental research in an engaging and understandable manner? What do you want? What do you advocate? Please study the policy brief examples in your text or on the website of the American Nurses Association. What do you hope to accomplish during your visit and presentation to the policymaker?
5. How would you deliver your message? What factors, such as time restrictions, the availability of the decision-maker, and backup plans, must you take into account?
6. Can you send a PowerPoint presentation, flip chart, or overheads along with the teleconference in some way? Your final course presentation, due week 7, should include the presentation slides themselves (up to 5 slides total). What documents (e.g., handouts) will you deliver to the decision-maker?
Rules for Visits to Legislative and Policymakers
Despite being well-prepared, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic about their policy issue, most nurses find it awkward to contact lawmakers. Nurses frequently drastically underestimate their influence and fail to recognize the openness and desire of politicians to hear their opinions.
Create a statement or suggestion that is concise and clear after choosing your healthcare policy topic and doing extensive study on it. Before approaching staff with your complaint, make sure you know who the proper policymaker is. The majority of participants in this course will choose a local policymaker, such as a municipal councilor or a school board member.
Example
In the course NR506: Healthcare Policy, student Y is enrolled. This student gives his time at the neighborhood community teen center in addition to working as an emergency department nurse at a nearby hospital for a number of years. Student Y is enthusiastic about protecting teens from motor vehicle accidents. His own children are teenagers, therefore he has firsthand experience with the catastrophic outcomes of teenage driving when inattentive or preoccupied. The problem of texting and using cell phones while driving is particularly interesting to student Y. According to student Y, this is a serious and expanding issue on both a local and a global scale.
Student Y chose his local city council representative(s) as the decision-maker to arrange a meeting with after thoroughly researching the problem. He wants to propose a local policy that would outlaw using a hand-held phone while driving inside the city borders. In order to assess and follow any relevant legislation, he has studied this policy issue, what has been done in other parts of the country, and the websites of nursing organizations. Student Y meticulously plans his strategy for engaging his policymaker(s), and he creates a convincing narrative and reform proposal. Given the time restraints of both parties, he schedules the meeting as soon as feasible and gets ready for every detail beforehand.
Student Y illustrates and describes how catastrophic and frequent these events are, especially among youths (this lends believability) using his experiences from the emergency room. He makes reference to his own adolescent children and his volunteer work at a teen center during his presentation, demonstrating his personal commitment and participation. His presentation highlights how other parts of the country have passed legislation and the results of such legislation, and his research material is clear and simple to understand. Additionally, he mentions in his presentation materials that his nursing association, the Emergency Nurses Association, is intensifying its lobbying efforts on behalf of this problem at the state and federal levels, which strengthens and professionalizes his argument. After making a crystal-clear suggestion, he solicits comments and ideas to help him in his ongoing lobbying work.
Student Y has done a good job preparing for his advocacy activities, even though it might take months or perhaps years to resolve this issue effectively. At every stage of this procedure, he can keep track of the legislation through websites, email notifications, phone calls, and letter writing. These decision-makers would have urged that he share this information to the neighborhood school board as well. He might also want to request that a measure addressing this issue be introduced by his state’s politicians. He could even publish this research and get ready to speak to his nursing group at a conference or gathering. He can speak to teenagers in their schools and in the community center in the interim.
