Gender and the Professional Predicament in Nursing, Celia Davies
10 Celia Davies Gender and the Professional Predicament in Nursing
Open University Press 226298 Great Britain 1996 0335194028 / 9780335194025 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket Gender and the Professional Predicament in Nursing examines the ways in which our understanding of nursing is gendered, and how our notion of nursing is connected to our idea of what it is to be a woman. It explores the implications this connection has for the status of nursing as a profession, and re-examines some of the fundamental questions that the nursing profession has tried to address, such as: * what is nursing care? * who should do it? * why is it so difficult to manage the provision of nursing care? Gender and the Professional Predicament in Nursing demonstrates that once nurses try to define and shape the nature of their work they are marginalized or silenced. Frequent descriptions of them as 'sentimental', 'divided' or 'incompetent' highlight the need to understand nurses' exclusion from policy debates, and why their voices are so seldom heard. Celia Davies contends that in a society divided by gender, defining nursing as women's work is deeply contradictory. We value nurses but devalue nursing. She suggests that alongside the debates about managerial efficiency in the NHS we need another kind of debate about how we organize health and social care, about what we mean by professionalism and about the worth of caring work. This book is important reading for students of women's studies, nursing, allied professions in health and medicine, policy makers and human resource managers. 220 pages.

Nurses and Doctors at Work - rethinking Professional Boundaries, Deidre Wicks
13 Deidre Wicks Nurses and Doctors at Work - rethinking Professional Boundaries
Allen & Unwin 226515 Australia 1999 1864485779 / 9781864485776 Softcover Good Condition In Nurses and Doctors at Work, Deidre Wicks looks at nurses and their relations with doctors at work. Drawing on extended observation and one-to-one interviews, she explores many aspects of nursing work which are rarely discussed. Her exploration includes incidents which reveal both cooperation and contestation with doctors and their medical goals and priorities. Wicks constructs a complex and nuanced picture of nurse-doctor relations. She uncovers the tension between structure and agency in nursing work, and explores the ways in which nurses demonstrate their capacity as knowledgeable actors within the constraints of gendered, institutional structures. She also shows how nurses' discourses of healing, dating from pre-Nightingale days, have survived into the present, even when they are in opposition to conventional medical practice. Wicks argues that nurses are constantly involved in both undermining and constructing the sexual division of labour with doctors. Nurses and Doctors at Work is essential reading for anyone interested in the sociology of nursing and the sexual division of labour. 202 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

Damned If We Do - Contradictions in Women's Health Care, Dorothy H. Broom
14 Dorothy H. Broom Damned If We Do - Contradictions in Women's Health Care
Allen & Unwin 226525 Australia 1991 1863730540 / 9781863730549 Softcover Near Fine Condition "Damned if we do" is an account of the unique network of state-funded feminist women's health centres in Australia. It describes the origins of women's health centres in the renascent women's movement, and discusses the theoretical and political analysis that informed the first centres established in the mid-1970s. The visionary movement for women's health centres has been fraught with difficulties. the major focus of the book is on the structural contradictions that arise when women in the movement translate their commitment to women's health from the personal and ideological level into the institutional format of a health centre, particularly a state-funded centre. "Damned if we do" is based on six years of research into the women's health-centre movement in Australia, including visits to most of the centres currently functioning and interviews with more than 120 women, including workers and former workers, members of management bodies and collectives, and state officials. This is a story of an important women's initiative, and an analysis of some of the conflicts and difficulties experienced. The women's health movement occupies a critical position between theory and practice, and between the women's movement and the community health movement. The book will be of value to readers interested in contemporary feminism; to students in women's studies, sociology of health, social change, nursing and health sciences, social work and social welfare, and political science; and also to workers in health and welfare. 195 pages.
