From the Foreword

Case Studies in Global Health Policy Nursing unpacks key global health issues and analyzes the surrounding health care policies and their impact through case studies. Designed specifically for graduate nursing students, this text explores the implications of global initiatives designed to eradicate disease and promote physical and mental health. As globalization takes a front row seat in the digital age and political dynamics shift more rapidly than ever, possibilities and opportunities for health care have arisen beyond the hospital-based focus, especially for diseases and trends that cross continental divides.

Every case study contains a multidisciplinary perspective, featuring contributions by expert nurses, public health professionals, and policy researchers. Presented in a consistent format for ease of use, each case study includes an overview, background, relevant research, and in-depth information on its significance as a critical global issue. This text covers critical, current topics such as health care for transgender individuals, refugees, and patients on the autism spectrum, as well as ongoing problems like access to clean water, HIV/AIDS, and human trafficking. End-of-chapter exercises reinforce content and supplementary instructor materials are available.

Key Features:

  • Delivers topical, in-depth examination of key global issues for graduate-level nursing students
  • Provides consistent format for each case study for ease of use
  • Presents an interdisciplinary approach with content from expert nurses, public health professionals, and policy researchers
