Abstract

Postmodernist thinking enriches gerontological nursing by skeptically reexamining the previous knowledge and by humanistically revealing the voices of the elderly. This chapter comprises four parts: an overview of postmodernist thinking; revisiting the knowledge on aging; reviewing Hong Kong gerontological care; and finally, a discussion on the practice and research direction.
