Center for Health Policy and Media Engagement of George Washington University School of Nursing is planning to develop a policy brief series throughout 2019 that will focus on health policies with significant nursing implications.
Each brief will focus on pressing policy issues, explore the need for policy change or development, and provide an analysis of the best policy options to address the issue. Briefs will present evidence and reports on promising policies/practices and approaches to addressing cost, access, quality, and/or workforce issues relevant to nursing.
We plan to publish the briefs on our website and in a compendium to be circulated to policy-makers and the public. We will include 10-15 peer-reviewed policy briefs in the series. Each individual or team whose brief is selected for publication will receive a $1,000 honorarium when their brief is published online in December 2019.
We welcome submissions from researchers and scholars, policy analysts, industry experts, and health and health care stakeholders. We are interested in a range of topics. Submissions should clearly identify strong nursing implications.
