"This book examines the relationships between caring, stress and coping, and health, and claims that caring is primary. Caring is a basic way of being in the world - caring sets up what counts as stressful and what coping options are available. This book shares the phenomenological and feminist goal of making visible the hidden, significant work of nursing as a caring practice. Expert practice illuminates all the theoretical points."
