  13. 13. 15-10-2009<br />Annette Sofie Davidsen, MD, PhD adavid@sund.ku.dk<br />13<br />I think it’s fantastic, to deal with different life stories, and to relate them to the their present lives, well, also the broadness you have as a family physician, children, wives and husbands and – well it’s a fantastic approach. And it’s a fantastic knowledge you possess. <br />
  14. 14. Storiesabout emotions and relationships<br />15-10-2009<br />Annette Sofie Davidsen, MD, PhD adavid@sund.ku.dk<br />14<br />Patient’semotionalreaction and the relationship had a creativeinfluenceon the story<br />And I think, then she experiences a relation between two human beings. That I think is important. This is the way we work in the dialogue, to get some, what could I call it, some feelings on the table which the patient has to tackle, and I have to tackle, and then we must see how we manage. The relation between, really, what happens just between us. <br />
  15. 15. Storiesabout irritation<br />15-10-2009<br />Annette Sofie Davidsen, MD, PhD adavid@sund.ku.dk<br />15<br />Tired of patients<br />Storiescreated by irritation<br />Not interested in hearingincoherentstories<br />To be honest I had actually become somewhat tired of her, so I simply could not stand it any more<br />
  16. 16. 15-10-2009<br />Annette Sofie Davidsen, MD, PhD adavid@sund.ku.dk<br />16<br />Family physician: Some can be enormously irritating. She made me – well, she was really irritating, unctuous, and would tell of all these horrible things she had – and how it hurt here and there. <br />Interviewer: but was that someone you could ask to tell her life story to get another view of her?<br />Family physician: no, she was too irritating, too peculiar. I’m damned if I think so. It must be some who – who you are somewhat interested in hearing about. I was not interested in hearing about her. <br />
