One critical policy area in which nurses are involved is that of reducing medical error. This is applicable to the new policy provisions of the Affordable Care Act in that one of its key features is that of providing quality care for premium dollars paid. Nurses will be instrumental in facilitating the accomplishment of this feature through the continuing application of measures to reduce medical errors.
