Stakeholder Involvement in Curriculum Planning: Responding to Healthcare Reform

Tiwari, Agnes PhD, RN; Chan, Sophia PhD, RN; Law, Beatrice MHA, RN


Instead of nursing faculty deciding the kind of education needed for a new curriculum, views and suggestions were solicited from nurses, doctors, and policy makers to help shape the curriculum. When stakeholders are involved in curriculum planning, there is a greater likelihood that the needed education is delivered. The authors discuss the context, process, outcome, and pros and cons of stakeholder involvement.
