B 1. A policy brief is a “short document providing findings and recommendations to an audience who may not be experts in an area of interest” which serves to give policy advice (DeMarco & Adams, 2014, p. 209). Nurse leaders can utilize a policy brief to explain a perceived problem to an administrator, constituents, and/or legislators. A policy brief provides a quick snapshot of the problem or the issue and a solution. Review the section Policy Briefs pp. 300-302 and Box 15-11, in Porche (2019), to assist in understanding the intent and the development of a policy brief.
