Title: Exploring Mixed Methods in Historical Inquiry-Analysis of National Health Policy Implementation at the State Level - 1970-2000 as Exemplar.
Abstract: Understanding the translation of national health policy at the state level is a complex process that requires historical analysis of interrelated factors such as state demographics, racial health disparities, health outcomes, health care workforce, nurse practice law analysis, economic indicators and the political culture within each state. In this presentation, I propose a plan to use mixed methods for historical research concerning nurse practitioner practice act legislation negotiations and state level data to compare factors within and between three states - Texas, Michigan and New Hampshire- that affected implementation of national policies from the 1960s and 1970s aimed at using nurses to provide primary care due to physician shortages. I explore current statistical models for quantitative historical research and the application of historical inquiry for longitudinal data analysis of large data sets.
