Policy and Research in the Israel Ministry of Health's Nursing Division

Yafa Haron

The Israel Ministry of Health Nursing Division, headed by the Government Nursing Officer, plays a pivotal role in promoting the nursing profession and influencing national health policy. In terms of nursing, the Division is authorized to set, upgrade, and audit professional standards; create new specialties; formulate, oversee and accredit educational programs, and register nurses. In terms of broad policy, it has a voice in shaping general health priorities and resource allocation. To expand evidencebased policy, it has established a Research Department, which will examine health policy decisions in light of scientific evidence. This article describes and analyzes the research department's contribution to the promotion of nursing policy in the Israel healthcare governance.
