Sammanfattning (abstract):
Person-centred care (PCC) is concerned to see the person behind the patient, as a unique human being with desires, emotions and specific needs in pursuance of enrolling this person as a partner in their own care and treatment procedures. PCC is often highlighted as the antithesis both to disease-centred care and to institution-centred care. It has been described as a means for seeing the patient and valuing the relational aspects of care in situations which otherwise are shaped by highly standardized protocols and templates. In this paper I bracket the opposition between PCC and technological devices such as admission protocols, self-rating scales and electronic patient records. Instead I concentrate on analysing PCC in everyday practice. Building on observational studies of and in depth interviews with care practitioners working with PCC I argue that technological devices and PCC are intimately woven together. Paying close attention to actual protocols and scales I discuss how their durability strengthens PCC, while also noting their mutability and how they were transformed during my time in field. In this way, I seek to offer insight into how PCC is actually done in practice and into how it is defined in the given setting.
