  • Interpretive Phenomenology for Nurses and Social Scientists

    Interpretative phenomenological analysis aims to offer insights into how a person within a given context makes sense of a phenomenon—usually these phenomena relate to experiences of some personal significance such as a major life event (acute or chronic illness, death of a loved one, change in economic status, etc.) or the development of an important relationship. Interpretive phenomenology augments the decontextualized stories—those told without consideration of the wholeness of one’s life—told by rational-empirical research studies of human beings. It reveals knowledge embedded in caring, cultural and social practices, engaged skilled actions, embodied know-how, and concrete ways people cope with everyday life events such as health, illness, injury, birth, suffering, and dying.
