Abstract

In this paper, we shall focus on the gap between the idea of patient democracy and the practice of shared decision-making within cancer treatment at Danish hospitals. Through a design research project we are aiming at exploring how probes can be used to evoke moments of dissensus, which allow for a detailed inquiry into patient roles and identities and how shared decision-making works against patient empowerment. The argument we put forward here, is that the probing process have a value in understanding systems of power and the forming of identity belongings.
