Abstract

'Faking a Difference' appears in a journal that is aimed at educators in nursing, midwifery and health visiting. It seeks to act as an interface between theory and practice in nurse education. I chose this article because it reopens the debate about what constitutes 'valid evidence', calls for an equal appreciation of qualitative research, and reasserts the importance of integrating complex critical theories into the sphere of clinical practice, rather than being seduced by the dominant discourse of quantitative methods.
