The use of interpretative repertoires, rhetorical strategies, and positioning in participants' talk opens analytic pathways, for example, to look at the pervasiveness of ‘public discourses’ of care in accounts, and the way that these are employed in talk that challenges, or works alongside, policy aims and objectives. This has enabled a reflection on the way that talk feeds on, and into, commonsense and policy assumptions about what care is and what carers and carees should be like. Such ideological work becomes central then in explaining troubles in care. This chapter offers reflections on the implications and applications of this approach for people involved in care relationships. This involves more epistemological footwork, making the leap between relativist/constructionist analysis and realist implications for professional practice in order to address the concerns of workers and trainees in health and social care professions.
