Cultural development by patient involvement

Project Team Managers: Dagfinn Bjørgen

In the spring of 2018 KBT established a partnership with the Departmental Attending Physician in the department of Østmarka, St. Olavs Hospital. We want to create a method for reflection groups consisting of the staff at Østmarka and people that have experienced involuntary commitment. The aim is to give patients the opportunity to create cultural changes at the hospital through dialogue. In between May and December 2018 Østmarka made an office available for KBT two days a week to get in contact with patients for the project. In 2019 we are setting up interviews with patients and taking part in evaluation conversations with patients and staff after use of involuntary commitment.
