Abstract

This presentation draws on the findings of a hermeneutic phenomenological study into the lived through experience of the acute stroke unit from two meaningful horizonal perspectives; that of stroke survivors and healthcare practitioners. In doing so, it provides an holistic understanding and offering of what was meaningful across the gestalt from a human lifeworld perspective. Through the synthesis of these two horizonal perspectives, three key areas of new insight and understanding emerged: the spatiality of the lived experience of the acute stroke unit, suffering and thriving as a human being, and the intertwining of multiple selves in time and place. This presentation will illuminate this enriched inter-subjective understanding, consider the permeability of horizonal landscapes, movement and dialogue between I-Thou and Thou-I, as we look to understand ourselves, another, and human living.
