Abstract Official doctrines of medical ethics have become increasingly "patient-centered". These official values are undermined and contradicted, however, by the routines and assumptions that physicians use to organize their everyday work. A fallacy is that patient participation can flourish by simple addition, without reform of the ordinary structures of everyday practice. It is unlikely that these structures will change unless their normally invisible value commitments are drawn out of the obscurity of routine, and made subjects for public scrutiny and choice.
