Abstract [en]

In Swedish healthcare, great emphasis is laid on the patient’s rights. Patients should receive information on their conditions and treatment options so that they can make informed choices and become involved. My study described elderly patients’ experience of meeting with the physician in a hospital setting specialized in geriatrics and medicine. To understand how the patient experienced the meeting, I used the following research questions: What is of importance for the experience of the meeting? How is the meeting experienced by the elderly patient? To explain the patients’ experiences of meeting with physicians, a sociocultural perspective was used. The main conclusion of the study is that physicians’ position of powe rmakes it difficult for elderly patients to participate in meetings. It would be helpful if physicians had a patient-centered attitude and translated medical terminology into everyday language.Physicians need to be aware of their body language and learn to acknowledge the patients’ questions and consider their medical conditions and personalities when building relations. The healthcare sector needs to become a learning organization in which physicians are trained to prevent misunderstandings when meeting elderly patients. Future research could focus on efforts to integrate geriatrics into the full curricula of medical schools. This case study provides an account of one practical aspect, namely, semi-structured interviews, with focus on some specific methodological problems that arose during the research.
