Social inclusion is context dependent and calls forth a myriad of philosophical ideals. Social inclusion is linked to human rights discourses and health outcomes and is often seen in relation to marginalization, disadvantage and exclusion. Nursing makes particular contributions to understanding social inclusion from a relational and health equity lens.
