Abstract

In this chapter we follow the story of practitioners as they attempt to transition from practice to research and back to practice, working and changing their personal and professional selves in a living transformation. The phenomenon of transitioning from practice to research and back is of recent origin across all healthcare disciplines and has become part of the tertiary education experience for many postgraduate practitioners. For the purposes of convenience and access to recent experience, the personal narratives used in this chapter are those of two of the authors. References are made to other professions, and practitioners from different fields may feel resonance as they read this chapter. Transitioning through The development of a research persona can be a powerful and transformative journey for the individual. In this chapter, we explore some of the spaces and places inhabited by practitioners as they strive to become researchers and then as they integrate new skills and knowledge to transform themselves into 'practitionerresearchers'.
