Sammanfattning (abstract):
Person-centred care (PCC) seeks to treat and care for patients as persons. Within this approach, persons who seek expertise or professional care are expected and encouraged to share their stories, provide an account of their symptoms and goals, and participate in decisionmaking processes and care plans. This approach envisions a shift from the paternalistic biomedical tradition where the healthcare experts are omniscient, competent and ultimate decision-makers to a more humanistic, dialogic and collaborative relationship with lay people seeking expertise and care for particular medical conditions but also having resources and capabilities. However, even though PCC challenges the tenacious assumptions of the biomedical approach, it also requires questioning of how the person is defined and seen by healthcare experts. Drawing upon in-depth interviews with researchers in three research projects within the University of Gothenburg Centre of Person-centred Care (GPCC), one strong lead in developing PCC research, we will shed light on how the person is conceived as unique and capable differs from one medical and/or care setting to another. Based on these projects where persons are not able and/or willing to participate in PCC, we will argue that even though PCC targets the problems and inequalities in the provision of care, a monolithic and standardized definition of the person glosses over the complexity of situations where both caregivers and persons engage differently in creating narrative, partnership and documentation.
