CSU Discipline Area: Nursing, Midwifery and Indigenous Health

Abstract: This subject encompasses an examination of philosophical perspectives which have influenced nursing epistemology, research and theory. A number of schools of thought are analysed including: the empirico-analytic, phenomenology, hermeneutics, critical social science and feminism. The link between such schools of thought and ways of knowing and theorising in nursing is a major focus in this subject. The subject also includes exploration of the concept of generating theory from practice.
