Main current international collaborative project:

Negotiating medical uncertainty in clinical encounters: a narrative exploration of 212 naturally occurring GP consultations. 

In this study, our aim is to explore how illness narratives are co-constructed within consultations between doctors and patients. Their mutual handling of medical uncertainty is emphasised. The study is based on 212 GP consultations in England, sourced from the One-in-a-Million archive in the UK. Consultations involve musculo-skeletal, psychological, digestive, cardiovascular, neurological, endocrine/metabolic and general conditions, which allows for a comparison across health and illness concerns. Qualitative interpretive inductive thematic analysis is used to explore these naturally occurring clinical consultations. In practice the analytic procedures will involve: observing and interpreting the sampled consultations; identifying factors that facilitate constructive interactions; categorising; and identifying optimum conditions for good doctor-patient relations in clinical encounters. To identify dynamic processes involved in the co-construction of illness narratives is the main aim of our study. NVivo will be used to store, structure and explore the data.
