Title: Culture of nursing homes : an ethnomethodological study / Amanda Jane Ruler
Author: Ruler, Amanda Jane
Issue Date: 2000
School/Discipline: Dept. of Clinical Nursing
Abstract: Examines the culture of two nursing homes using an ethnographic method which is underpinned by ethnomethodology as a philosophical approach. The study shows how older and disabled people are seen to deviate from social norms and how society responds to their situation. Future directions for aged care are suggested, and include evidence based practice, primary nursing and the evolution of a nurse practitioner focussed model of care, with adequate support for nurses.
