Philosophy in a Nurse's World: Politics of Nursing Practice II 2012
Kinnear Centre for Creativity & Innovation
May 13-15, 2012
Banff Centre - Banff, Alberta
The May 2012 conference is an extension of our successful 2010 conference and we will be continuing the general theme of ‘the political’ and nursing practice. At the 2010 conference we examined concerns and questions that related to the social, political and economic contexts and conditions currently organizing nursing as a discipline and a field of care. In 2012 we want to continue our collective philosophical conversation about 'the political' and nursing practice and in particular, focus on philosophy in action in nursing practice. What is the difference that philosophy makes to practice? Can our philosophical work politicize our practices and what effects might this have for us and for health systems?
