Hellstrom, O.; Lindqvist, P.; Mattsson, B.
Patient Education and Counseling, v33 n1 p83-89 Jan 1998
An old man, who experiences himself as deeply misunderstood by the medical profession, is interviewed. Analysis shows that doctors involved related, not to the patient, but to a biomedical image of him. His efforts to communicate were converted into instrumentally manageable disorders. Dialog medicine, a counseling model, is introduced. (Author/EMK)
