    A case for the 'middle ground': exploring the tensions of postmodern thought in nursing.Kelli I. Stajduhar, Lynda Balneaves & Sally E. Thorne - 2001 - Nursing Philosophy 2 (1):72-82.
    Diverse beliefs about the nature and essence of scientific truth are pervasive in the nursing literature. Most recently, rejection of a more traditional and objective truth has resulted in a shift toward an emphasis on the acceptance of multiple and subjective truths. Some nursing scholars have discarded the idea that objective truth exists at all, but instead have argued that subjective truth is the only knowable truth and therefore the one that ought to govern nursing's disciplinary inquiry. Yet, there has (...)

However, little is known about how language and the physical and social aspects of place interact to influence how health‐care is delivered and experienced in the home environment. Drawing on ethnographic participant observations of homecare nursing visits and semi‐structured interviews with Canadian family caregivers, care recipients and nurses, the intersection (...)

    Applying the concept of structural empowerment to interactions between families and home‐care nurses.Laura M. Funk, Kelli I. Stajduhar, Melissa Giesbrecht, Denise Cloutier, Allison Williams & Faye Wolse - 2020 - Nursing Inquiry 27 (1):e12313.
    Interpretations of family carer empowerment in much nursing research, and in home‐care practice and policy, rarely attend explicitly to families’ choice or control about the nature, extent or length of their involvement, or control over the impact on their own health. In this article, structural empowerment is used as an analytic lens to examine home‐care nurses’ interactions with families in one Western Canadian region. Data were collected from 75 hrs of fieldwork in 59 interactions (18 nurses visiting 16 families) and (...)
