The authors of this book have brought their wide range of experience, knowledge and expertise to present many angles of one central argument. We are advocating that practice epistemology, or knowing how practice knowledge is created, used and developed (further), should become an explicit dimension of the core, the regularity and the expectation of professional practice. A clear understanding of epistemological beliefs is especially important in the face ofthe uncertainties inherent in the information revolution and the postmodern world. The book presents a collection of peer-reviewed chapters which examinefour core issues:
What constitutes practice knowledge?
How is this knowledge created and developed?
What are the roles of practitioners, researchers and educators as individuals and members of their communities of practice in understanding and developing practice knowledge?
Whatare the implications of a practice epistemology model for practice, education and research in the health sciences?
We look forward to your participation in this discourse.
Joy Higgs, Barbara Richardson and Madeleine Abrandt Dahlgren
