This week’s readings and lecture offered information related to lobbyists and advocates. Is there a difference between being a lobbyist and an advocate? Lobbyists provide support for policy, as do advocates, so what is the difference? Most nurses consider themselves patient advocates; however a political advocate is somewhat different. In this discussion, differentiate between a lobbyist and an advocate. Be sure to discuss a political advocate rather than a bedside advocate.

Topics to include:

  • Definition of a lobbyist.
  • Definition of an advocate.
  • Similarities and differences.
  • Why are they both important?
  • How does one of your selected organizations (choose one you used in your week 1 DB – What is the definition of Nursing Excellence – these organizations were discussed in the week 1 PowerPoint) lobby or advocate for health care policy?
