Professional advocacy has been recognized as one of the most vital and basic roles of the nursing profession. The role of advocacy, though, is an intricate one. “Nurses may act as advocating by promoting informed decisions, by acting as liaisons or by interceding for another individual. The term advocacy in its simplest outline means standing up for what one believes in for both self and others. Nursing advocacy then is a form of representation that nurses do for patients and others when they are not able to speak up for themselves. The nurses who advocate for patients and others do so within a nurturing capability.” The objectives of the advocate are to notify, enhance independence and respect the decision of the patient (“Patient, Subordinate and Professional Advocacy, n.d.). Simply put, advocates are often the go between or mediator between the healthcare system and the patient.
