Marie-Pierre Codsi’s article “Changing relationships: how does patient involvement transform professional identity? “Documents how partnering with patients transforms the identity of healthcare professionals.
Using ethnographic work based on 2 years of observation, she sheds light on the tensions generated by the transformation of relationships between patients and professionals, when the latter move from a bond of caregiver-patient to a role of colleagues.
