Abstract


Policy analysis is the process that determines which alternative policies will achieve goals in light of the relations between the policies and the goals. Actually, National Center for Mental Health (NCMH) in Jordan has smoking policy that is concerned about patients' safety measures, but some problems could occur during implementing of the policy. Evaluating the smoking policy in NCMH, an alternative one in regard of six steps of policy analysis is recommended as new policy. The best alternative in this situation is to implement the smoke free hospital policy regardless of smoker patients' satisfaction.

Keywords: Smoking ban, Smoking permission, Mental health facilities, Policy analysis.
