Abstract [en]

Phenomena in caring science are often complex and laden with meanings. Empirical research with the aim of capturing lived experiences is one way of revealing the complexity. Sometimes, however, results from empirical research need to be further discussed. The aim of this presentation is thus to describe the methodological support for the further abstraction of and philosophical examination of empirical findings grounded in caring science and lifeworld phenomenology.  In order to systematize the support procedures, we have used a reflective lifeworld research (RLR) approach. In the first stage, data from several (two or more) empirical results on an essential level are synthesized into a general structure. The second stage can then be a philosophical examination, in which the general structure is discussed in relation to a philosophical text, theory, or concept.

The methodological support will be discussed in relation to an example from empirical research focusing on the phenomenon of older patients’ participation in team meetings. The results from two empirical studies, that indicated the need for a more in-depth examination of the interpersonal relationships when an older patient is present at a team meeting, were further explicated by philosophical examination in the light of Heidegger and Merleau-Ponty’s philosophy.

Core dimensions of the described methodological support are, in accordance with RLR, openness, bridling, and reflection and can be seen as a guiding light in the search for further meanings.
