Health Systems/Health Policy

This RIIG is a forum for members interested in health services and health policy research. We offer networking opportunities, peer support, and inspiration to others interested in this area of work and research. We welcome all interested parties – researchers, clinicians, academicians, and students – to our RIIG. 

The goal of the Health Systems/Health Policy RIIG is to promote, encourage and supplement the development of health services research that focuses on nursing practice, workforce, improvements in care quality and delivery in and across systems, as well as health policy. Future objectives for this RIIG include offering webinars and promoting individual and symposium submissions for health systems and health policy topics.
