MacDonald, K. (2016) Review 2: The reflexive role of tanka poetry in domestic abuse research, Journal of Research in Nursing, , , ,
Dissemination of findings in health sciences research can take many forms, but is usually through publication in peer-reviewed journals and oral and poster presentations at conferences and events. One of the challenges for the researcher is how to get the message across with maximum impact; poetry is one means of achieving this. The reviewed paper fell into my inbox on the same week that I presented a seminar on the use of poetry to convey emotions in Masters and Doctoral work (CRFR, 2015; MacDonald, 2015). This paper resonates strongly with this theme and has two purposes: to disseminate the research data in a way that is meaningful and exposes the participant voice; and to explore reflexivity and emotion in relation to the role of the researcher in qualitative research.
