Political Science Theory for Public Health Practice
Watson, Tyler
American Journal of Health Education, v45 n6 p319-321 2014
Community health educators are well versed in the behavior sciences, including intervention theories. However, most public health professionals are not familiar with the policy theories related to political advocacy. Because health educators are engaging in policy advocacy more frequently, and as a result of the profession including policy advocacy as a core competency, a structured introduction of prevailing policy theories is appropriate. This article introduces the 4 most frequently used policy theories in political science.
