Keynote Address. Nursing research: where to from here?
Kermode, S 1995, 'Keynote Address. Nursing research: where to from here?', paper presented to NSW Nursing Research Interest Conference- COSINE '95, Sydney, NSW.
Science is under threat from a number of sources. In nurse education a range of discourses have been attempting to marginalise science and to replace it with epistemologies which are deemed to be more appropriate. This paper examines the 'not-science' discourses of postmodernism and feminism and evaluates their importance to nursing through their relationship to, and effect on science.
