Nurses as Sources in Health News: Developing Media Competencies (TH311)

Nurses continue to be left out of dominant media narratives. A recent study, The Woodhull Study Revisited: Nurses Representation in Health News Stories, which replicated the original research published in 1998, reported on nurses' representation in health news. The study found that, although nurses are the largest group of health professionals, they are cited as sources in only 2% of articles published by newspapers, news weeklies and trade publications. A companion study of health journalists provided some explanations, including newsrooms ’ biases about women and nurses, a lack of understanding of what nurses do, and difficulty in finding nurses with specific expertise.
