Phenomenology is uniquely suited to describing the experience of illness. Its influence on theory and research in nursing and healthcare has been substantial. Its impact on medicine and on the philosophy of medicine only recently begun to be seen. It has also been used, to a lesser extent, in medical training and teaching and in healthcare training. Not all of these applications of phenomenology in healthcare and medicine have been successful. This article examines the ways in which phenomenology has been used in these fields, presents some criticisms of its use, and suggests further ways to employ this productive method in healthcare, nursing and medicine.
