Advocacy is an important part of healthcare policy and implementation. Successful advocacy should involve research, building relationships, creating a narrative that can reach people, and personalizing the story using real life experience.
When delivering the message, it should be kept at 8-10 minutes, with additional time for questions and answers. When communicating it is important to understand who the audience is, anticipate the move of one’s opponent, and to be aware of the power of what is not being said.
Moreover, it is important to be authentic and use language that one is comfortable with, as well as knowing one's data. Finally, it is important to reach out to other agencies for help and advice to achieve a common purpose.
