In order to influence health care policy and to effectively advocate for issues that directly impact patient care and health outcomes, it is critical to understand the components of health care financing and factors that impact funding. Without this understanding and without a sustainable financing plan, the implementation of the best policies will not occur. For this Discussion, you and your peers will explore and discuss how health care financing directly impacts nursing practice, treatment options, and patient outcomes.

Post a response to the following:

How do the rapid and dynamic changes in financing impact health outcomes within your practice?
How do evidence-based practice (EBP) and interprofessional partnerships in nursing help to manage the constant changes in health care financing?
In what ways can an understanding of health care financing better equip nurses to be more effective advocates?
Note Initial Post: A 3-paragraph (at least 350 words) response. Be sure to use evidence from the readings and include in-text citations. Utilize essay-level writing practice and skills, including the use of transitional material and organizational frames. Avoid quotes; paraphrase to incorporate evidence into your own writing. A reference list is required. Use the most current evidence (usually less than or equal to 5 years old).
