Chaos, cosmology and evolution. The key to understanding practice development in perioperative nursing?


, : Chaos, cosmology and evolution. The key to understanding practice development in perioperative nursing?. British Journal of Perioperative Nursing 10(7): 378-382

This article looks at the challenges facing practice development today and uses key topics in the natural sciences as metaphors to try and stimulate fresh ways of thinking about the way forward. The fundamental challenge we face is one of borders and boundaries, and this is a theme I will keep returning to in this paper.
