Philosophy in the Nurse’s World:
Politics of Nursing Practice II

Banff, Alberta, Canada

The May 2012 conference will continue our philosophical conversations about ‘the political’ and nursing practice and in particular, focus on philosophy in action in nursing practice. Questions that might exercise us include: What is the difference that philosophy makes to practice? Can our philosophical work politicize our practices and what effects might this have for us and for health systems?
