also I think until you've actually read that alternate literature you cant really make any claims about it.

that makes no sense to me. You do not need to have things called 'patients' to be a thing called 'nurse'. My nursing colleagues in the UK and Australia are shifting their terms. The persistence on patient is an American thing which was my point.

no and its not really about the word right? the word symbolises something else. the strength of person centered nursing is in the actual underlying framework which is about transformative change from the person to the nurse to the system. that's the focus.

I dont see myself as a patient. it's a label 'you all' put on me. It automatically has a power relation in it whether you think it does or not. But i'd recommend reading the experts on it, who are also nurses, and who did the empirical work to develop the framework.

definitely read the articles and books but if you think about the word patient, its a label that immediately puts that person as a set of symptoms in relation to you the powerful nurse (good to read some and on biopolitics there too!).

there is talk about patient centeredness of course but it doesnt often mean what i think it should mean, and the word patient itself is so problematic. if you are calling nursing holistic then you have to think about HOW to be person centered. So important for research.

I'm grading papers of US nursing PhD students. We've been exploring what makes nursing science 'nursing' and only one student talked about PERSON-CENTEREDNESS. it's a massive gap in US nursing theory. Read and
