Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Diane M Tomasic, EdD, RN (Slippery Rock University )
Description: This book, the first volume in the series entitled Interpretive Studies in Healthcare and the Human Sciences, describes how power, oppression, and violence are experienced as people struggle while receiving healthcare.
Purpose: The purpose of the series is to provide a place for interpreted studies to be presented in detail. Specifically, the studies in this volume explain how power, oppression, and violence are implicit in healthcare practices.
Audience: The target audience is healthcare workers and scholars in nursing, medicine, and allied health sciences. The contributing authors are involved in hermeneutical methods and interpretive phenomenology.
Features: This volume contains five studies, using interpretive methodologies, to describe how power, oppression, and violence are part of "best practices" of healthcare. These studies demonstrate new possibilities to recognize, understand, and overcome oppressive practices.
Assessment: This book, and the series, provide the opportunity to participate in a conversation about selected contemporary issues in healthcare and human sciences. Contributors will be using various interpretive approaches to explore the issues.
