            This ground-breaking book focuses on the view of practice knowledge as involving a varied and dynamic landscape of practice. In the term landscape of practice the authors explore the complex system of communities of practice including not only the practice of practitioners such a...s nurses, teachers, child-minders, managers, but also that of researchers, professional educators, curriculum designers, regulatory agencies, professional bodies, policy makers, local management and recipients of services. It combines a strong theoretical perspective grounded in social learning theories with stories from landscapes of practices. While having the coherence of an authored book it also brings in the voices of broad range of contributors who occupy different locations in their landscapes. These stories of practice locate the book within different contemporary concerns such as social media, multi-agency, multi-disciplinary and multi-national partnerships, integrating academic study and workplace practice and the challenge of managing personal continuity in a portfolio or fragmented career.

            Qualitative Research in Midwifery and Childbirth: Phenomenological Approaches
             

            Qualitative Research in Midwifery and Childbirth: Phenomenological Approaches (Hardback)

            Qualitative research, particularly phenomenology, is increasingly popular as a method for midwifery and health-related research. These approaches enable rich and detailed explanations to be uncovered and bring experience to life. Important recommendations and practice- based impl...ications may then be raised and debated for future use. This book brings together a range of phenomenological methods and insights into one accessible text. Illustrated with plenty of examples of successful phenomenological research, Qualitative Research in Midwifery and Childbirth keeps the focus applied to midwifery and childbirth and makes clear the links to practice throughout. The book introduces three key phenomenological approaches -- descriptive, interpretive and the life world -- and includes a comparative chapter which discusses the pros and cons of each. Each chapter focuses on how these approaches are used within midwifery research. Part Two presents a number of different research projects. These demonstrate how different phenomenological approaches have been used to explore and uncover experiences of childbirth and maternity as well as offering important insights into how women experience different facets of the birth experience during the antenatal, intra-partum and postnatal period. Designed for researchers and students undertaking research projects on midwifery and childbirth, this text includes contributions from a range of international and highly regarded phenomenological authors and researchers.
