    Buddhist thought and nursing: a hermeneutic exploration.Graham McCaffrey, Shelley Raffin-Bouchal & Nancy J. Moules - 2012 - Nursing Philosophy 13 (2):87-97.
    In this paper I lay out the ground for a creative dialogue between Buddhist thought and contemporary nursing. I start from the observation that in tracing an arc from the existential human experience of suffering to finding compassionate responses to suffering in everyday practice Buddhist thought already appears to present significant affinities with nursing as a practice discipline. I discuss some of the complexities of entering into a cross‐cultural dialogue, which is already well under way in the working out of (...)

    Making room for grief: walking backwards and living forward.Nancy J. Moules, Kari Simonson, Mark Prins, Paula Angus & Janice M. Bell - 2004 - Nursing Inquiry 11 (2):99-107.
    In this paper, the authors describe an aspect of a program of research around grief and clinical practice. The first phase of the study involves examination of experiences of grief with attention to troublesome or problematic beliefs that fuel the extent of suffering in the bereaved. The data, obtained from a review of videotaped clinical interviews with families seen in the Family Nursing Unit at the University of Calgary, were analyzed according to philosophical hermeneutic tradition. Findings suggest that grief is (...)

    Conducting hermeneutic research: from philosophy to practice.Nancy J. Moules (ed.) - 2015 - New York: Peter Lang Publishing.
    <I>Conducting Hermeneutic Research: From Philosophy to Practice is the only textbook that teaches the reader ways to conduct research from a philosophical hermeneutic perspective. It is an invaluable resource for graduate students about to embark in hermeneutic research and for academics or other researchers who are novice to this research method or who wish to extend their knowledge. In 2009, the lead author of this proposed text was one of three co-founders of the Canadian Hermeneutic Institute. The institute was created (...)

    Is it Really “Yesterday’s War”? What Gadamer Has to Say About What Gets Counted.Nancy J. Moules, Lorraine Venturato, Catherine M. Laing & James C. Field - 2017 - Journal of Applied Hermeneutics 2017 (1).
    In this paper, the authors address the perceived recent trend of funding and publishing bodies that seem to have taken a regard of qualitative research as a subordinate to, or even a subset of, quantitative research. In this reflection, they pull on insights that Hans-Georg Gadamer offered around the history of the natural and human science bifurcation, ending with a plea that qualitative research needs to be received, appraised, judged, and promoted by different lenses and criteria of value.

    Nursing on paper: therapeutic letters in nursing practice.Nancy J. Moules - 2002 - Nursing Inquiry 9 (2):104-113.
    Nursing on paper: therapeutic letters in nursing practice This paper offers a selected piece of interpretive research extracted from the context of a larger research study. The hermeneutic research inquiry described in this paper involved the examination of the nursing and family therapy intervention of therapeutic letters. It incorporated the textual interpretation of 11 therapeutic letters, clinical sessions with three families, clinical team discussions, and research interviews with four family members and three nurse clinicians who participated in the writing of (...)

    Interpretive description in applied mixed methods research: Exploring issues of fit, purpose, process, context, and design.Sara Dolan, Lorelli Nowell & Nancy J. Moules - 2023 - Nursing Inquiry 30 (3):e12542.
    As mixed methods research approaches become increasingly more common, it is imperative they are conducted in a thoughtful and rigorous manner to yield useful results. While researchers have begun to explore the use of various qualitative research methodologies in mixed methods research, there is a gap in literature discussing the philosophical congruence of using interpretive description in mixed method studies, and how to ensure rigor while integrating interpretive description results. Our purpose in writing this article is to discuss the issues (...)

    Conducting Interviews in Hermeneutic Research: An Example.Nancy J. Moules & Lisa M. Taylor - 2021 - Journal of Applied Hermeneutics 2021 (2021).
    In this paper, we discuss the conduct of an interview that was done as a demonstration of the character of interviews in hermeneutic research. This interview was conducted within the context of a graduate course on hermeneutics and involved one of the course professors and a volunteer doctoral student in the class. Although the interview did not occur within a research study, the content of the interview is genuine and not fabricated or acted. Offering the course in an online platform (...)

    The enigma of weight: Figures, flux, and fitting in.Katherine Wong, Maxine Myre, Nancy J. Moules, Danielle Lefebvre, Janelle M. Morhun, Jessica F. Saunders, Andrew Estefan & Shelly Russell-Mayhew - 2022 - Frontiers in Psychology 13.
    PurposeIn Western society, the measurement of weight is prioritized over a person’s bodily experience. Hermeneutic philosopher Gadamer warned against the emphasis on measurement, rather than experience, in the medical sciences. An examination of the complexity of the experience of weight provides the opportunity to shift focus from quantifying the connection between health and weight to the experience of the person being weighed.MethodsThis qualitative hermeneutic study aims to understand people’s experiences of weight from the interviews of professionals and lay experts. Interviews (...)
