Mayor, E. & Bietti, L.M. (2017). Ethnomethodogical studies of nurse-patient and nurse relative interactions. A scoping review. International Journal of Nursing Studies. DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.ijnurstu.2017.01.015
Researchers in nursing science interested in the study of nurse-patient and nurse-relative interactions have displayed an ever increasing interest in ethnomethodology and conversation analysis. This review assesses the scope of this literature. We categorize the papers in thematic categories determined both inductively and deductively and synthesize the main findings of this literature within category. Finally we discuss the interactional determinants of the lack patient participation, the limitations of the field, and focus on implications.
