Abstract

Since the 1950s, the number of hospitals in Denmark has fallen from approx. 150 to approx. 30 and the average number of days for hospitalized patients has been reduced from 20 to 4 days. At the same time, the number of medical specialties has increased. Thus, the patient’s contact with the healthcare system becomes both more volatile and more complex. To reduce the patient’s experience of complexity patient involvement has become an increasingly important political topic. With theoretical and methodological inspiration from discourse studies and studies of heroism, the article sheets light on how the articulated use of ‘warranting voices’, categorizations and interpretive repertoires construct a specific patient-behavior and-agency in ways which has significant situational and character wise similarities with the construction of heroes.
