  • Description
    "The health professions see advocacy as a core competence of professional practice, alongside scientific knowledge, clinical and inter-personal skills. Although many good examples of effective health professional advocacy exist, we see health advocacy, particularly as it relates to influencing institutional, community, national and international policies, as an under-developed skill area in need of urgent strengthening. Whether you are a nurse, pharmacist, physician, dentist, physiotherapist, manager, or any other health professional, this Guide aims to provide you with a practical advocacy action framework that you can use in your daily work."
