journal contributionposted on 2006-09-01, 00:00 authored by Karen-Leigh Edward
This article develops a theoretical discussion related to the value of a phenomenological framework in contributing to contemporary nursing knowledge.

Phenomenological methodology utilizes the patient's own language to reflect meanings embedded in their health experience.
