Abstract

The phenomenology of practice is a qualitative scientific method, defended by van Manen, who intends to analyze the phenomenon associated with one's lived experience. This article aims to analyze the application of the scientific method of the phenomenology of practice in the scientific production published in the oncology nursing discipline between 2010 and 2018, through a bibliometric analysis. As a method of analysis of the articles we resorted to bibliometric review because it allows a quantitative and objective reflection through the use of bibliometric indicators. As a result of the analysis of the 19 articles, 73% of the articles have as target population the cancer patient and their experience of the disease and its treatment. The publications are made in journals with an average IF of 1,337 and with the maximum number of citations of 54. As a conclusion of this bibliometric analysis, the fact that the method of phenomenology of practice has been increasingly applicable in Nursing stands out. Oncology in recent years, with relevance in the production of knowledge and which provides this discipline to illustrate the life experience of the people being studied.
