Abstract
The aim of this essay was to examine two groups of hospital counselor’s own descriptions of their roles and status in their hospital unit and in relation to other professions.

The two hospital units that we compared were hospital counselors in palliative care and hospital counselors in other somatic care. The study was made with a qualitative approach where we interviewed eight hospital counselors. Four of them within palliative care and four of them within other somatic care. To analyze our results we used profession theory and Goffman’s dramaturgical perspective. The terms that are used from profession’s theory are for example interprofessional collaboration, ethics, morals and values and the professional helper. We used Goffman’s terms about team, performance, actors and observers. The main outcomes of this study according to the counselors’ descriptions, were that the role of the counselor in palliative care was less vague and they had a more established role within their multiprofessional team in comparison with the counselor of other somatic care. Our results also indicate that the psychosocial perspective is more common within the palliative care. (Less)
