Abstract:

When a geographic location is assigned meaning, it becomes a The authors argue that place matters as both geographical location and lived experience. They extend the current conceptualization of nursing geography to encompass community health nursing and address intricacies of community nursing practice and research that often go unnoticed. They do so by exploring the notion of in home and community, including the structural/spatial dimensions of the nurse-client relationship. The authors review the health geography literatures, then discuss the implications for practice and research in community health. They invite community health nurses to critically examine their practice and research with reference to such issues as the power of the nurse, marginalized places as determinants of health, and how best to care for clients living in diverse community settings.

Quand un emplacement géographique acquiert un sens, il devient un lieu. Les auteures examinent l'importance de ce constat du point de vue de la géographie et de l'expérience vécue. Elles étendent le concept actuel de géographie des soins infirmiers aux soins infirmiers communautaires, s'intéressant aux complexités de cette sphère d'exercice et à des travaux de recherche souvent passés inaperçus. Elles explorent la notion de lieu au sein du foyer et de la collectivité, touchant aux dimensions structurelles et spatiales qui définissent la relation thérapeutique. Les auteures recensent les travaux en géographie de la santé et proposent une analyse de leurs implications pour la pratique et la recherche en santé communautaire. Elles invitent les infirmières de ce secteur à se pencher sur ces questions en s'attardant à des dimensions comme le pouvoir de l'infirmière, le rôle des lieux marginalisés comme déterminant de la santé et les meilleures approches en matière de soins destinés aux clients de milieux sociaux diversifiés.
