Sample text

Discussions were dominated by technical information, with little emotion shown. The psychosocial aspects of patients' lives or illnesses were generally ignored, with the doctors asking questions and the patients providing answers. Candace West (1984) also discusses the doctor's role as questioner and the patient's role as answerer revealing the linguistic dominance of the doctor. In the data presented in Chapter 3, there is a basic ironythe patient comes to the doctor with questions about her health, but the doctor asks all the questions.

The other four sessions concentrated on technical aspects of sexual biology. Such information as changes in millimeters of the vagina before and after female orgasm was discussed at length in a slide presentation. It seems unlikely that this is a topic much raised by patients when consulting doctors about their sexuality. Neither the high splash of the sex films nor the technical lectures taught doctors what they would need to answer the more likely complaints of sexual insecurity or impotence.

People can hardly contain their need to express their own rage at what they have experienced personally or seen in medical care. The most conservative sociologists, who would rebel against a radical critique of society, will rail against their treatment at the hands of doctors. The only group in society that refutes such talk is doctors themselves. Their first response, all too often, is that the research findings or criticisms (and they are overwhelmingly critical) are the exaggerated tales of complaining, neurotic women or radical, ivory tower academics, or that these are all exceptions to a normally unproblematic relationship in a well-functioning system.
