I'll expand on this over the coming months ... first something a bit off the wall...
Now and again I revisit what started as my 'notes' on conceptual spaces. This could be an embarrassing case of mistaken identity (and an embarrassing series of blog post!).
As with everything what is the cost? Well in words .....
1,300 2,400 5,567 10,534 20,340 ...
Potential strategies form to combine interests and efforts.
Quality of Care?
Dignity & Respect?
Confidence in Care?
How to shuffle the decks that are nursing, informatics, cognitive science, and education?
beyond redundancy -
References are found. Some are metallic - key - sources. Some are virtual.
Some are never recovered:............................
For a long time it collected virtual dust. Encoded on the hard disc long since last accessed. A Frozen amalgam of bits. But then, a return -
The aRc of relief- fresh eyes, fresh thought, further insights ....
The overall structure changes. For a long time this project was h2cm, then additional thoughts a website, a blog, several papers with this - yet another. A possible submission, journal - conference?
Then a text; a project; a song*; possibly a thesis? (* Only joking)
How many are still born?
No cry, no joy, less holistic care.
I do believe h2cm is an example of a conceptual space.
It could be that there is ONE ' ' or several [Is it lexical, discursive, cognitive, enacted, ....?]
That space is idealised across ALL nursing theories. ButT (my head hurts) what sort of space is it? Shuffle the cards again, take one, memorize it.... Have we landed yet? Am I moving, or is that you?
Where is that space in practice now - and where is it post-midnight?
It is there in all care theories, they all count towards local - global health. Rejoice in eclectic care realms; in pre-post training and lifelong learning.
In books, on lecturer's lips, values carried forward in student's thoughts and deeds.
