Summary This title offers a pluralistic perspective on the patient experience and patient care.
"The pluralistic perspectives offered by postmodern and poststructural approaches to health care offer new insights into aspects of nursing and health care. Julianne Cheek's Postmodern and Poststructural Approaches to Nursing Research makes these approaches accessible to health care workers, researchers, and health care scientists through carefully exploring what these terms mean and how they can be brought to bear in the clinical and health research settings." "In the first three chapters, the author examines definitions of postmodern and postcultural approaches and ways in which they can be used to influence and inform us about health care. Chapters 4 and 5 look at the practical aspects of proposing and carrying out research projects using these approaches. Cheek concludes by reviewing the "intellectual journey" required in coming to grips with the meaning and application of these approaches, and she suggests ways in which the reader can continue to grow in his or her pursuit."--Provided by publisher.
