This chapter outlines a practical philosophy for being strategic, forward-looking, and positivewith clients. Called solution-focused nursing (SFN), it is derived from critical social theoryand positive psychology ideas. The chapter begins with a client's experience of emergencyhealth care. The narrative is analyzed and key lessons are drawn from it, before moving on tointroduce a philosophical framework for nursing that helps clinicians be solution focused andstrategic, rather than reactive and overwhelmed.
