Strony: 161 - 179



The hospital as a total institution — discursive and institutional determinants of communication

Drawing on the concepts formulated by Erving Goffman and Michel Foucault, the author analyses the hospital as a total and panoptical institution. Pointing to institutional, systemic and organisational indicators of such a classification, she examines the necessary framework and contexts of communication as well as their impact on the doctor–patient interaction.
