Background and activities

General practitioner and researcher at the General Practice Research Unit, Department of Public Health and General Practice, NTNU.

The research field is the continuous doctor-patient relationship and inter-professional communication in the health care system in Norway.

The title of my PhD thesis:

"Knowing patients as persons. A theory-driven, qualitative study of the relevance of person-related knowlegde in primary health care"

The aim of the PhD project was to explore the medical relevance of knowing patients as persons. The research project was divided into two phases: In the exploratory phase, two groups of GPs were invited to reflect upon their ways of knowing about "their" patients. The consequent phase consists of an intervention into the interface between GPs and a nursing home, emphasizing communication among caretakers of their knowledge about patients as persons.
