Modern health and social care defines itself as patient-centered and other-oriented, at least ideologically (Sarangi in Text and Talk 27:567–584, 2007). This book’s analytical approach aligns with this discursive turn. In consequence, the experiential side of health and social care has been sought explored. Social practice studies have contributed to conceptualizing a participant perspective analytically (Sacks et al. in Language 50:696–735, 1974; Schegloff in Am. J. Sociol. 97:1295–1345, 1992). However, this book has conceptualized a participant perspective based on an IL–PT-inspired ontology, which distinctly contextualizes the individual participant perspective.
