3008.0 How to Write a Good Policy

Monday, November 9, 2009: 8:30 AM
The public policy development process is the mechanism by which the American Public Health Association addresses external policy matters. This session explains the key ingredients for good policy writing and provides an overview of the timeline for the policy cycle. Helpful guidance and tips will be shared. This is especially relevant if you are considering proposing a new policy. The presenters (Elaine Auld, Geraldine Perry and Donald Hoppert) will try to bring clarity to the process and what makes a strong policy. There will also be an opportunity for Q&A.
Session Objectives: Explain APHA’s public policy development & policy review (archiving) processes. Describe the elements of a well written policy. List at least 3 responsibilities of an APHA member who submits a proposed policy. Explain what happens to APHA policy once it is adopted and how members can get engaged in supporting its implementation.
