The Promotion of Social Justice in Healthcare
In today's complex and constantly changing healthcare environment, nurse leaders are focused on patients having adequate access to safe, high-quality services. They're also working to decrease hospital readmissions and medical errors through the promotion of teamwork and implementation of evidence-based clinical practice guidelines, especially considering the abundant policy changes pertaining to the funding and reimbursement of healthcare services. With these topics taking precedence, nurse leaders must remain mindful of the importance of promoting social justice in healthcare.
This article focuses on social justice and its role in improving patient outcomes and enhancing overall population health, particularly among vulnerable populations.
