Entering health practice discourse: Finding all our voices

Diane Tasker, Maree Simpson

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


Discourse involves the way that members of a particular area of practice think, talk and present themselves to each other and the community at large. In the case of healthcare practice, it can more particularly be seen as the sharing of ideas between people, based on a systematic body of knowledge (Harper, 2009), the way a discipline of practice talks about itself to itself (Powers, 2001).
