Sample text

Blomfield and Hardy (2000) and Procter (2002) argue that the tacit, experiential sources of knowledge that nurses use to inform their practice need to be promoted as important and valid contributors to effective clinical practice. Benner (1984) goes so far as to attribute this accumulation of experiential knowledge to higher levels of practice in which ‘intuitive’ knowledge is used in decision making, that unarticulated sense that many nurses speak of when they refer to people ‘going off’ or when ‘something is brewing’.

Nurses need to match required care (or need) with an appropriate care provider/provision and so they need to know of the skills and working patterns of other providers. Liaschenko and Fisher (1999) argue that knowledge of the other people involved in care provision allows nurses to ‘organise care for multiple individuals across time and space’. This knowledge extends beyond a social form of knowledge though, to a knowledge of the care and service infrastructure that may be deployed, and that historically shapes care provision.
