Description : This case study explores the personal journey of my experiences of using narrative research as a research methodology when exploring Irish nurses' experiences and understandings of reflective practice. The research question proposed was, "What are Irish nurses' experiences and understandings of reflective practice?" The focus was within the Irish context, and there was no evidence of prior research on this topical area from an Irish perspective. A convenience sample of eight newly qualified nurses from a third-level college, in which I am employed as a lecturer, was used as the method of data collection, and thematic analysis was used to analyze the data. This case study does not concern itself with comparing and contrasting research methodologies--it goes further by deepening the understanding of narrative research to the reader and its application within the field of research. Rather, it is the reflection of my experiences using narrative research as a methodology.

Description : Today the multidimensional global shortage of nurses is negatively impacting the work environment of hospital nurses and causing, in a cyclical fashion, decreasing work satisfaction, increasing nurse turnover, and decreasing patient outcomes. While strategies aimed at causation of the nursing shortage must be addressed, to support nursing until resolution occurs, it is essential to focus on strategies aimed at retaining nurses within this challenging health care environment. Using qualitative research, narrative inquiry and personal narratives, this study documents the stories of six exemplary hospital nurses who not only have stayed and survived in this hostile and challenging environment of hospital nursing, but continue to grow professionally and provide exceptional nursing care; their story is a story of career satisfaction and career success. Using narrative analysis, these stories were co-constructed with the researcher and the exceptional hospital nurses from data obtained through two interactive narrative sessions. An in depth three dimensional analysis of both the individual and collective narratives was completed. The findings of this study revealed numerous exceptional nurse characteristics and traits which not only appear within, but transcend the individual nurse narratives. First and foremost, this study indicated that the concept of caring permeated all aspects of their personal and professional being. They not only cared for their patients but these exceptional nurses cared deeply for and respected their peers, their families, their profession and themselves. Life-long learning took precedence in their nursing career, and though they believed in formal education, few pursued advanced credentials. They unanimously believed the greatest educational emphasis in nursing should be on experiential learning. Along with exemplary and positive attitudes, the exceptional nurses in this study were extremely pragmatic, value-driven individuals and employed a solutions-focused approach to problem solving. Nursing was viewed by these nurses as a profession of rewards and they celebrated these rewards continually. When compared to the extant literature on the concept of resiliency, the exceptional hospital nurses in this study displayed many of the traits of resilient individuals. Implications for adult and narrative learning are explored within this research study and, based on the findings of this study, implications for nursing education, nursing practice and future nursing research are presented. Since few studies have been completed which identify the characteristics and traits of exemplary and/or resilient hospital nurses, this study serves to add to the body of knowledge on hospital nurse exceptionality, nurse retention and nurse resiliency.

Description : Dignity is fundamental to every single person’s life and history; and every interaction with another human being can potentially influence a person’s sense of identity and self-esteem. In recent years, there has been a growing awareness of the importance of ‘dignity in care’. When healthcare organisations and individuals prioritise dignity, service users, carers and staff are treated with respect, compassion and understanding, and safe, good-quality healthcare services are delivered. In contrast, when dignity and respect are neglected or violated, people experience poor-quality care and may even suffer neglect and abuse. For all these reasons, it is clearly vital that all healthcare workers have a thorough understanding of dignity and how to place it at the centre of all their activities. In this helpful and thought-provoking book, the contributors offer an overview of current research on dignity-preserving care, highlighting practical and ethical considerations in various healthcare settings. Section I introduces some key dignity theories, demonstrating how the use of narrative can offer insight and practical solutions for the delivery of high-quality care. Section II introduces actual stories from diverse settings and perspectives, enabling the reader to engage with core elements of dignity while highlighting how dignity can be preserved – even in very challenging practice situations. Critical thinking activities are also provided to encourage deep reflection and learning. This book will support students of nursing and allied healthcare professions, as well as healthcare professionals working in diverse practice settings, to reflect upon and enhance the quality of their care. Contents include: • Foreword: old and new philosophical angles on dignity in care • Preface: the necessity of dignity in healthcare • Understanding dignity: a complex concept at the heart of healthcare • Dignity and narrative: moral intuitions and contested claims • Dignity in dementia care • Dignity, protected by caring in care • Storytelling as a dignity-preserving practice in palliative care • Reintegrating spirituality and dignity in nursing and healthcare: a relational model of practice • The service provider and care perspective • Let us not forget the dignity of the professional caregiver: the necessity of dignity preservation within the therapeutic context • Dignity in suffering: a theological perspective • Learning dignity by involvement • Dignity in cancer care: a discussion based on three narratives written by nurses • A story of facilitators’ experiences of the Excellence in Practice Accreditation Scheme and its influence on quality, dignity and respect • Afterword: what gets in the way of dignity, and why you must not let it

Description : Reflexive Narrative: Self-Inquiry Toward Self-Realization and Its Performance is latest addition to the Qualitative Research Methods series. Author Christopher Johns describes this unique method and its developmental approach to research to enable researchers’ self-realization however that might be expressed. This method focuses on systematizing the reflective process and providing structure while still remaining flexible to the needs of individual researchers and projects. Researchers collect data through reflections on everyday experiences and then selectively use the evidence of researcher’s insights. The text starts out with a brief introduction to narrative research and reflexivity, situating the method within the larger context of organizational practices. The next chapters introduce the steps for reflexive narrative research and walk readers through the movements of the reflexive narrative process, writing, reflection, dialogue, guidance, weaving, and audiencing. Additional coverage of ethics and research examples provide a foundation for application of the method to individual research. A chapter on structuring the method for a doctoral thesis furthers the applied nature of this method. Three extracts from studies provide research examples across several social science disciplines, including nursing and education. For students and researchers alike looking for new approaches to reflexive methods and looking to expand their ideas about self-research in a qualitative context, Reflexive Narrative provides a starting place for their own examination of self in the context of research.

Description : "...an important text for practitioners...this text is a valuable tool that develops self-inquiry skills." Journal of Advanced Nursing Reflection is widely recognised as an invaluable tool in health care, providing fresh insights which enable practitioners to develop their own practice and improve the quality of their care. Guided Reflection: A Narrative Approach to Advancing Professional Practice introduces the practitioner to the concept of guided reflection, in which the practitioner is assisted by a mentor (or 'guide') in a process of self-enquiry, development, and learning through reflection in order to effectively realise one’s vision of practice and self as a lived reality. Guided reflection is grounded in individual practice, and can provide deeply meaningful insights into self-development and professional care. The process results in a reflexive narrative, which highlights key issues for enhancing healthcare practice and professional care. Reflection: A Narrative Approach to Advancing Professional Practice uses a collection of such narratives from everyday clinical practice to demonstrate the theory and practicalities of guided reflection and narrative construction. In this second edition, Chris Johns has explored many of the existing narratives in more depth. Many new contributions have been added including several more innovative reflections, such as performance and art.These narratives portray the values inherent in caring, highlight key issues in clinical practice, reveal the factors that constrain the quest to realise practice, and examine the ways practitioners work towards overcoming these constraints.

Description : 'Jane Elliott's examination of the use of "narrative" within the broad context of social science inquiry is a must-read for both qualitative and quantitative researchers, novice and expert alike' - Journal of Advanced Nursing `This important book does an impressive job of synthesising a complex literature and bringing together both qualitative and quantitative methods of narrative analysis. It will become a milestone in the development of narrative methods. Although ground-breaking in many ways, it is very clearly written and accessible to readers from a wide variety of backgrounds and methodological experience' - Nigel Gilbert, University of Surrey `An elegantly written, scholarly and accessible text. Jane Elliott shows a sophisticated appreciation of contemporary methodological developments, and makes a persuasive case for the use of narrative approaches in both qualitative and quantitative research. The book challenges and advances debates about combining methods, and shows how stories can work within and across conventional research boundaries. It is a truly original contribution to the literature' - Amanda Coffey, Cardiff School of Social Sciences `An outstanding book. Jane Elliott breaks new ground by demonstrating to new generations of social scientists how the power of narrative can fruitfully be harnessed in social research. This is a "must read" book' - Professor Mike Savage, University of Manchester This is a lucid and accessible introduction to narrative methods in social research. It is also an important book about the nature, role and theoretical basis of research methodology in general. Jane Elliott instructs the reader on the basic methods and methodological assumptions that form the basis of narrative methods. She does so in a way that is practical and accessible and in a way that will make the book a favourite with students and experienced researchers alike. Elliott argues that both qualitative and quantitative methods are characterised by a concern with narrative, and that our research data can best be analyzed if it is seen in narrative terms. In concrete, step-by-step terms she details for the reader how to go about collecting data and how to subject that data to narrative analysis, while at the same time placing this process in its wider theoretical context. She works across the traditional quantitative/qualitative divide to set out the ways in which narrative researchers can uncover such issues as social change, causality and social identity. She also shows how the techniques and skills used by qualitative researchers can be deployed when doing quantitative research and, similarly, how qualitative researchers can sometimes profit from using quantitative skills and techniques. "This book provides both a fascinating and a challenging read. What sets this text apart from other books on research methodology and methods is that it does not focus exclusively on either quantitative or qualitative research approaches, but rather attempts to bridge the divide. The book should be compulsory reading not only for those aspiring to undertake narrative research and those students undertaking higher degree research courses, but also for those more experienced researches wishing to explore contemporary issues in research methods and methodology. As a recent recruit to a lecturer-practitioner post with little recnt experience in the subject area covered by this book, i found it met my needs very well. I would certainly recomment this book for purchase." Dr Andrew Pettipher, University of Nottingham, UK.

Description : Schooling Learning Teaching: Toward Narrative Pedagogy calls forth ways of thinking the issues of schooling, learning, and teaching. The task of this book is to plumb this triad as a phenomenological relationship that emerges as an “intra” rather than an “inter.” Do conventional pedagogies favor preparing nursing students for a healthcare system that no longer exists? Has competency-based nursing education reached its completion? Exhausted its possibilities? Converging conversations and Concernful Practices of Schooling Learning Teaching show themselves as the telling of narratives. Narrative Pedagogy gathers all pedagogies?past, extant, and future?into converging conversations by rethinking schooling, learning, and teaching as an intra-related, co-occurring invisible phenomenon. Relating as telling and listening reveals the richness of situated involvements as they meaningfully disclose and beckon: they simply ask to be listened to. NURSING EDUCATION “This book is a treasure-trove that calls out a voyage of discovery. Narrative Pedagogy is the realization of 20 years of hermeneutic phenomenological research by Nancy Diekelmann. In her scholarship she has attended to the listenings of students, teachers, and clinicians in nursing educational settings in order to move beyond the constrictions inherent in the traditions of schooling?those that pursue the production of students as trained outputs by teachers and clinicians, bound to particular sets of strategies. Narrative Pedagogy is the first nursing pedagogy from nursing research for nursing education. Both our eyes and our ears will be opened to a richer way of thinking.” -Pamela M. Ironside, PhD, R.N.

Description : The six writers in this book explore the contribution and the transferability of narrative inquiry from curriculum studies to daily life in education and in healthcare. They examine the interconnectivity of reconstructed experience with the construction of disciplinary identity and knowledge. Thinking narratively, they write auto/biographically about relationships between teachers, students, nurses, colleagues, and/or people in their care. As narrative inquirers, they are curious how research moves forward professional situations in education and healthcare. The narrative plotlines of knowledge construction, curriculum building and identity formation thread through the chapters. In education and healthcare, the reconstructed experience of a teacher is shown to be foundational to curriculum content and processes. In nursing education, we see congruence between narrative inquiry (Clandinin & Connelly, 1995, 2000; Connelly & Clandinin, 1988, 1999) as a process that includes the teacherresearcher as coparticipant; and, theorists, such as Watson (1999), include the nurse in the caring situation as shapers of the experience of people in their care. As practitionerresearchers, teachers in education and healthcare construct who they are and how they are in relationship in the context of social situations. Inquiry, not certainty (Dewey, 1929), is a life stance that is formative for education. Practitioners in education and in healthcare will be interested in this book as a way to make meaning of their experience. Policymakers and administrators will be interested in this book as a way of conceptualizing teachers’ knowledge as a source of curriculum. Researchers will be interested in this book as a demonstration of how narrative inquiry illuminates ways of being that are educative and an innovative way to study curriculum.
