Abstract

Nurses' patient education is important for building patients' knowledge, understanding, and preparedness for self-management.

Nurses' patient education is important for building patients' knowledge, understanding, and preparedness for self-management. The aim of this study was to explore the conditions for nurses' patient education work by focusing on managers' discourses about patient education provided by nurses. In 2012, data were derived from three focus group interviews with primary care managers. Critical discourse analysis was used to analyze the transcribed interviews. The discursive practice comprised a discourse order of economic, medical, organizational, and didactic discourses. The economic discourse was the predominant one to which the organization had to adjust. The medical discourse was self-evident and unquestioned. Managers reorganized patient education routines and structures, generally due to economic constraints. Nurses' pedagogical competence development was unclear, and practice-based experiences of patient education were considered very important, whereas theoretical pedagogical knowledge was considered less important. Managers' support for nurses' practical- and theoretical-based pedagogical competence development needs to be strengthened.
