Postmodern and Poststructural Approaches to Nursing Research

First Edition

Offering pluralistic perspectives on the patient experience and patient care, this book examines these in the context of postmodern and poststructural approaches, especially: the ways in which theses approaches can be used to inform us about health care; the practical aspects of proposing and carrying out research projects using these approaches; and the `intellectual journey' required to come to grips with their meaning and application.

This book captures very neatly critical discursive issues on health research. I have found this book to be easy to read in terms of the lay out and format. It focuses on important key issues related to qualitative health based research. It also explains key concepts and theories in a detailed way. Some helpful examples throughout the book but more importantly I feel this book is very useful for the health researcher i.e. literature reviews to undertaking research. A great resource for the post graduate researcher and as a framework for teaching at a Bsc level and Phd level.
