Main research areas

The encounter between clinicians and migrant patients in Danish outpatient psychiatric services. A qualitative study on the Cultural Formulation Interview 


Current research

This study takes its point of departure in the Cultural Formulation Interview (CFI) from DSM-5, which has a narrative approach and serves as a clinical resource for the systematic and individualised evaluation of cultural dimensions in psychiatric assessment.  

Empirical data will be generated at 5 Danish outpatient psychiatric services in the Capital Region and includes participant observation, focus groups with clinicians and interpreters, interviews with migrant patients and visual recordings of 20 CFIs.  


The main objective is to understand and describe what the different parties of the encounter accentuate in relation to good psychiatric care and the handling of cultural issues. 

Furthermore, the objective is to test and evaluate the clinical utility of a Danish translation of the CFI.
