In the January 2012 issue of the American Journal of Nursing, the winners of the annual book awards were published. We are proud to announce that the American Journal of Nursing’s panel of judges awarded best text in community-public health to Policy and Politics in Nursing and Health Care edited by CHMP’s co-director Diana J. Mason, Judith K. Leavitt, and Mary W. Chaffee.
CHMP contributors to Policy and Politics in Nursing and Health Care include:
Co-director: Barbara Glickstein
Senior Fellows: Jessie Daniels, David Keepnews, and Barbara Nichols
National Advisory Council members: Sally Cohen, Beverly Malone and Ellen-Marie Whelan
Policy and Politics in Nursing and Health Care was also reviewed by Marla E. Salmon, ScD, RN in the January 4, 2012 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association. She writes, “While primarily intended for a nursing audience, the book offers value to any health professional who wants to shape health and health care through policy and the political process.” You can read the first 150 words of the full text without a subscription here.
Congratulations to all!
