1 Sundhed og Sygdom Dialogliste Engelsk Introduction Titel: Sundhed og Sygdom (2.02) Eremitageløbet Speak (2.10) Today there is a lot of focus on health. That s because health and a healthy lifestyle are among some of the best ways to prevent illness. (2.29) By staying in shape, exercising and eating healthy foods, you can avoid a lot of illness in life. (2:45) Despite living a healthy life, sooner or later everyone crosses paths with the Danish public health service in connection with the prevention of diseases, the examination for or the treatment of diseases. Livet omkring søerne (03:04) Determining when someone is sick or needs treatment can be difficult. It s important to listen to your body and take heed of any warning signs. You can t always sense illness. (03:23) Pain is an indication that something is wrong. In order to give the proper treatment it s important to find the cause of the pain. Gadeliv (03:41) Different people experience illness in different ways. Some people react strongly and feel it s a big part of their lives. Others only feel a slight discomfort or a different sensation in their body. The most important thing is that it doesn t stop you from having a good life. If you can t get well on your own, you should seek help from the public health service. The Doctor Hos den praktiserende læge Læge til kamera (4.13) A general practitioner is one of the people in the health service you can go to with any problems you might have. He or she could be called your entry person. He or she can treat you, and can also refer to another part of the system if necessary. Læge (4.28) It s your turn. (4.29) Yes. Læge (4.30) Please come in. Speak (4.31) Within the health service, a general practitioner is the person you are in regular contact with and who follows you throughout life. Læge til kamera (4.39) 1

2 A general practitioner has a long and extensive education. First, six years at university and then an education in general medicine. Speak (4.53) Most general practitioners don t wear a white coat in their office. Laboratorium I lægekonsultationen Læge (4.58) We re continuing the treatment of your diabetes. I can see that blood tests were taken before you came, and that s fine. How do you feel the treatment is going? (5.08) It's hard to remember to take the medicine. Læge (5.10) Yes. It s very common that when you have to start taking medicine like pills every day, it can be hard to remember. It s a good idea to establish a routine like taking them at breakfast. That would be a good idea. Looking at your test results and how things are going in general, I think you should continue taking the medicine. (5.32) Okay. Læge (5.33) I can see that your prescription has run out, so I ll write you a new one. I can leave it at our local pharmacy or post it online on the so-called prescription server, so you can pick it up at whatever pharmacy you prefer. Speak (5.49) Many illnesses can be treated with medicine and with your doctor s help. But there are many illnesses or health problems that you can do something about yourself. Some illnesses are cured by time and go away on their own. Læge og patient snakker om kost, motion og forebyggelse Læge (6.07) So we ve renewed your prescription, but that s not all there is to treating diabetes. Diet and exercise are very important, so tell me how that s going. (6.18) I think it goes really well with eating healthily. I've stopped eating cakes and sweets, and I eat a lot of small meals a day, plenty of vegetables, but the exercise isn t going so well. Læge (6.37) OK. (6.38) It's a little hard for me. Læge (6.39) It s part of the treatment and it s important that you lose some weight. The incentive for you is that you could get off the medicine. In our municipality we now have a center for health and disease prevention, and one of their areas of expertise is Type 2 diabetes, which is what you have. I think you could really benefit from going there. Would you like me to give you a referral to the center? 2

3 (7.08) That sounds good. Health Insurance and Health Card Speak (7.10) Doctors don t always prescribe medicine to treat illness, but that doesn t mean that they don t take illness seriously. (01.03)Speak In the Danish health service, every citizen has the same right to free medical care. We have public health insurance that our taxes pay for. So when we re sick, we can get the treatment we need. (01.22) Everyone with residence in Denmark can get help from the public health service. (01.21)Borger I m here because I d like to change doctors. (01.32)Borgerservice Okay, do you know which doctor you want? (01.34)Speak The citizen service center issues a health insurance card to everyone. This card is your admission pass to the public health service. You can choose a male or a female doctor. Choosing a doctor or changing doctors also takes place at the citizen service center. (01.54)Borgerservice You just want to change doctors? Is this in connection with moving to another address? Borger No. (01.59)Speak: If you lose your card or if you choose to change doctors, you must pay a fee. Borgerservice: There, I ve assigned you a new doctor, and your new card will arrive in the mail in about two weeks. Borger: Okay. (02.10)Borgerservice: Would you like this? It shows your doctor s opening hours? Borger: Yes, please. Thank you. (02.14)Borgerservice: Let s just settle the payment then. Would you like to pay with card or cash? (02.17)Speak 3

4 Always bring your health insurance card when visiting the doctor or other health services. (02.24) The health insurance card also provides cover in case of acute sickness while travelling in Europe for up to one month. It is also a good idea to bring a blue EU health insurance card with you. Transport home is not covered by the two cards. You must always make sure that you re insured before travelling outside Denmark. Check the rules for public health insurance on your municipality s website or borger.dk. (03.00) You can choose between two insurance groups: group 1 and group 2. Most people are in group 1 and are assigned a general practitioner whose treatment is free. Øjenlæge Look over here, please. (03.22) Treatment by a specialist is also free. A referral is often required, although there are exceptions, for instance for treatment by an eye specialist or an ear, nose and throat specialist. You can also get a referral for subsidized treatment by a physiotherapist, psychologist or chiropractor. Dental care and medicine are subsidized too. (03.50) Subsidized treatment means that you must pay for part of the treatment yourself. The amount you have to pay varies from treatment to treatment. (04.02) Hospital treatment is free for everyone in groups 1 and 2. (04.11) In addition to the public health insurance provided by your health insurance card, you can take out private insurance that provides extra coverage of treatment. One example is the health insurance company Danmark which subsidizes the cost of dental care, eyeglasses and medicine. (04.34) It s a good idea to take out personal accident insurance with an insurance company. Among other things, personal accident insurance gives compensation for chronic illness, work-related injuries and death. The Pharmacy Borger henter medicin på recept på apoteket (04.48) Some people are covered by health insurance through their employer. Others take out private health insurance to ensure access to treatment at private hospitals and clinics. Farmaceut (10.48) No. 48 Klient (10.50) Hello Farmaceut (10.51) 4

5 What can I do for you? I m here to pick up some medication. The prescription has been sent electronically. Farmaceut (10.54) Do you have your insurance card? Klient (10.57) Yes, here you go. Farmaceut (11.01) There is some Metformin for diabetes? Is that it? Klient Yes, that's it. Farmaceut fortæller om håndkøbsmedicin og receptpligtig medicin Farmaceut til kamera (11.08) At the pharmacy you can buy both prescription drugs and over-the-counter drugs. You can also buy non-prescription drugs in some shops and supermarkets. At the pharmacy you ll also find skilled qualified staff and highly-qualified pharmacists. Here you can get detailed instructions on the medicine you buy. If you have minor problems, such as colds, a stuffy nose or mild pain, you can often get advice at the pharmacy without having to go to the doctor first. Farmaceut (11.44) Is that something you've had before? Klient (11.46) Yes, I've been taking it for approximately 6 months.. Farmaceut (11.48) And is it going well? Klient (11.51) Well, I think it s going very well, but I get a bit of nausea from it. Farmaceut (11.54) Actually you can minimize it by taking it either before or during the meal, so you can get rid of the nausea. Klient (12.04) Yes, I will do that. Farmaceut (12.06) I can see here that it also says Simvastatin for cholesterol. Would you like to have it straight away? Klient (12.10) Well, I actually have something at home and I wonder if I need to take it because my cholesterol is not very high. 5

6 Farmaceut (12.19) But it is important that you do so. You must take both simvastatin and metformin, when the doctor tells you to. Speak (12.25) Follow the instructions of your doctor and the ones written on the label of your prescribed medicine. The medicine won t have the proper effect if it s not taken in the right way, and that could make you even sicker. Farmaceut fortæller om vigtigheden ved at følge medicinanvisninger Farmaceut til kamera (12.41) When you buy over-the-counter medication, there will always be a leaflet in the box that says how you should take the medication and what precautions you should take, and it also informs you about side effects. It is important that you keep the leaflet with your medicine, so you can always check if there is anything you are unsure about. Speak (13.04) It s always important to follow the instructions, whether it s essential medicine, vitamins or minerals. Farmaceut til kamera (13.13) Even if you do not feel good about your medication, you should not stop without contacting your doctor. Perhaps the dose should be changed or you can take the medication in a different way or maybe you need something completely different. If you are taking for example vitamin D, then it is important that you do what the doctor says, even though vitamin D is just a vitamin. Maybe you feel no difference, but in the longer term, it can have serious consequences for you to suffer from vitamin D deficiency. For instance you may get osteoporosis and muscle weakness. Borger betaler for sin medicin Farmaceut (13.48) That s d.kr. 35, -. Are you a member of Danmark? Kunde Yes, I am actually. Farmaceut (13.53) So in fact you get something from the public insurance and you also get some reimbursement from the private health insurance "Danmark". Doctor s Appointment Lægesekretær besvarer opkald om tidsbestilling hos lægen Sekretær (14.10) Haslev Medical Center. Yes, good morning. Speak (14.14) Before you can go to the doctor, you have to make an appointment. There are several ways of doing this. The quickest and easiest way is to make an appointment on your doctor s homepage or by sending your doctor an . You can also make an appointment by calling your doctor s secretary during office hours. Læge (14.37) Yes, I have an opening at 10:30 today. Would that be OK? 6

7 Speak (14.43) If you re sick and need to talk to the doctor, you can call during the doctor s telephone hours. Most doctors have one hour a day for telephone consultations. (14.57) If you choose to call, remember that the doctor s office can be very busy and getting hold of the doctor can be difficult. (15.06) Remember to bring your health insurance card when visiting the doctor. On the whole, preparing for your visit is a good idea. Perhaps your doctor asked you to take your temperature before coming, or asked you to write down the course of your illness, or to make a list of the medicines you take. Write down what you want to talk about with your doctor. Læge (15.32) Come at 10 o clock tomorrow. Is that alright? Speak (15.37) For your doctor to keep to his schedule, it s important that you arrive on time for your appointment or that you cancel if you are unable to come. har bestilt tid til flere ting hos lægen Læge (15.48) I can see you ve made a double appointment. (15.51) Yes, I d like to talk about two things. Speak (15.54) If you want to discuss several problems, it s important to say so when making an appointment, so your doctor can set extra time aside. 6. Medical Specialists (05.12)Speak In most cases, your general practitioner can help you with your health problems, but otherwise you will be referred to a specialist or a hospital. (05.25)Ørelæge Do you hear it in both ears? No, only one. Ørelæge Which one do you hear it in? My right. Ørelæge The right? (05.34) A specialist is a doctor who has specialized within a specific medical area. Øjenlæge 7

8 That s fine. Thank you. Ørelæge I m going to turn you around, so you can t see, OK? (05.45)Speak There are many types of specialists. They either work in hospitals or as practicing specialists with their own clinic. (05.58)Ørelæge I can see that you have some hearing loss in your right ear. (06.03)Speak A doctor can also refer you for treatment by a physiotherapist, chiropractor, podiatrist or psychologist. (06.13)Fysioterapeut Hold it there a moment. (06.15)Speak You can consult a physiotherapist if you have muscular pain, sports injuries or other physical problems or if you need physical rehabilitation. A chiropractor works in the same field. However, a chiropractor can also use x-rays to help determine the cause of your problems. (06.42) For many people, seeing a psychologist is taboo. (06.47)Psykolog People come to me or are referred to me if they re depressed or have a problem they can t get over. The difference between a psychiatrist and a psychologist is that a psychologist offers talk therapy. A psychiatrist has a medical degree and can therefore prescribe medicine as part of the treatment. (07.08)Speak Some people find mental illness embarrassing and don t want to talk about it. However, talk therapy can really help a lot of people with their mental problems. (07.21)Psykolog Fortunately, more and more people come to us, since it can be hard for the family to help because they have feelings and expectations for the person who needs help. (07.33)Speak When you re referred to a practicing specialist, a hospital or other experts, you can t always know if the doctor will be a man or a woman. In some cases, you have a choice, so if you have a special request, you should make it known. (07.56) Today it s possible for your doctor to draw up an electronic referral. This means you are free to choose where you use your referral because the specialist, hospital or physiotherapist you choose can 8

I m calling because I have a sore throat and a sore chest. Lægevagt Are you in pain? Hmm. When did it start? (09.11)Speak If you can wait until your doctor s office opens, do so. If you re not sure it s safe to wait, you can ask the emergency doctor. The emergency doctor, who is an experienced general practitioner, will assess whether you need immediate medical attention. You will often be asked to go to the emergency medical services clinic where the exam will take place. Lægevagt I think you should come see us. Can you do that? Do you know the address? Yes, I ve been there before. Lægevagt Is there someone who can accompany you? That s good. (09.49) If you don t know who to contact or have questions regarding an illness or injury, you can dial 1813 for the emergency medical line. It is manned by a nurse 24 hours a day. (10.05)Sygeplejerske: He is lying in bed? Here s what to do, you need to place him on his back. Speak: The nurse can also tell you which emergency clinic or emergency room has the shortest waiting time. (10.17)Speak You can go to the emergency room 24 hours a day in case of acute 9

10 illness and other minor or major injuries. Emergency clinics can only treat acute illnesses and minor injuries, and they re not open at night.

Hospital Preliminary Examination kommer til lægen med mistanke om brok (10.48) Tell them what has happened, where it happened and how many are injured. Mand It s a man. He s collapsed. (10.58)Speak Emergency services will then send an ambulance to take the patient to the nearest emergency room. (22.09) I have a lot of pain in my groin, and it s very uncomfortable. I ve talked to some people who say it could be a hernia, and I do a lot of heavy lifting. Læge (22.18) That sounds very likely. Do you have a lump in your groin? (22.22) Yes, I do, and it feels tight. bliver undersøgt for brok af lægen Læge (22.24) If you d like to come over to the table, I can examine you. I ll apply pressure here. Does that hurt? Yes, it does. Læge Okay. Could you cough for me? (22.41) (cough, cough) Læge (22.42) As far as I can tell, there s no doubt that you have a hernia in the groin area. What happens now?

11 bliver henvist til hospitalet af sin praktiserende læge til forundersøgelse på hospitalet I think that in your condition and with the pain you re experiencing and the discomfort it causes you in general, that the right thing to do is to operate. So I m going to refer you to the hospital, and they will call you in for preliminary examination. So I ll just write your referral. Speak (23.12) After a short while, you ll receive a letter with the time and place of your appointment. If the date is inconvenient, please contact the hospital to make a new appointment. Hospitalslæge (23.23) That s fine. Thank you, Malik. You can get up now, and we can sit down and talk about what s going to happen. I ve examined your groin and you definitely have a hernia on your left side. Speak (23.37) Almost all hospital examinations and treatments are free. You can be treated in the hospital if you ve been hospitalized in an emergency or if you ve been referred. Hospitalslæge (23.50) What I think we should do, considering your symptoms, is to give you an operation. The operation can be done in two ways. It can be done under general anaesthetic or under a local anaesthetic. There are advantages and disadvantages to both of them. The other thing you should know is that when you re a young and healthy man, it can be done on an outpatient basis. Speak (24.18) Some examinations and operations are done as an outpatient procedure. This means that you won t be hospitalized for several days and can go home the same day. Hospitalslæge (24.30) Well, the way the operation works is that we make an incision where the hernia is Speak Other examinations and operations require hospitalization for a period of time because there s either a need for several examinations, prolonged treatment or because the doctors want to make sure that everything is going according to plan. får tid til operation på hospitalet Hospitalslæge (24.52) OK, what we ll do now is to schedule a time for your surgery, and our booking nurse can do that for us. Speak (25.02) A hospital stay should be seen as a process where an illness is diagnosed. That is, they find out what is wrong with you and treat it, or a treatment is initiated and monitored until you are given a clean bill of health or are well enough to be discharged. Sometimes it takes time to find out what is wrong. And sometimes you can have more than one medical condition. Hospitalslæge (25.28) 11

Malik, it was nice to meet you. I ll see you on the day of your operation. (25.41) Thank you. Speak (25.45) In Denmark, patients have a choice of hospital. That means that if your doctor has referred you to hospital for treatment, you can choose between all the hospitals that offer that treatment. Forberedelse til operation og operation på hospitalet (26.01) The waiting time varies from hospital to hospital, so if you want to be treated quickly, it s a good idea to check where that s possible. If the waiting time is exceeded, you should be offered treatment at another public or private hospital in Denmark or abroad. This is called guarantee of treatment. It s up to you whether you want to wait or to accept this offer. (26.34) You can also choose to pay for your treatment at a private hospital or clinic by bypassing the public hospital service. If you have a private health insurance that covers treatment in private hospitals, you can make use of it. Sundhed.dk Kvinde sidder derhjemme, hvor hun kigger og søger informationer på sundhed.dk Speak (27.12) On the homepage sundhed.dk you can, among other things, see the waiting lists for treatment at the various hospitals in Denmark.

Læge Adios Prevention ønsker at blive vaccineret før udenlandsrejse Læge (37.00) There was also another thing we should talk about today?

Læge (37.15) Of course there are many forms of hepatitis, but when going so far away, you should vaccinate against the one called hepatitis A. It consists of two vaccinations, and I'll explain to you how it works later. 16

17 Forebyggelsestilbud Speak (37.29) But there are many other ways of preventing illness: by taking medicine, vitamins and minerals or by accepting the preventive measures offered by the healthcare service. This could be screenings for breast cancer or cervical cancer, dental check-ups, pregnancy screenings or other health check-ups. It can be hard to understand why you should take medicine or take preventive measures if you don t feel ill. (38.01) Another way of preventing illness is by having a healthy lifestyle.

Sundhedsvejleder til kamera (38.16) In Denmark s healthcare and disease prevention centers, help is offered to citizens with lifestyle diseases like chronic lung disease, type 2 diabetes or heart disease. Citizens who want a healthier lifestyle can also get help. The centers have healthcare personnel like dieticians, physiotherapists, nurses and healthcare advisors. (38.41) The help offered in these centers is for citizens who are not so ill that they have to be hospitalized. You can get help here with a referral from your doctor or the hospital, but you can also get help here in the center without a referral. Speak (38.59) Not every municipality in Denmark has a healthcare center or a disease prevention center, but every municipality has something similar. Ask your doctor. Borger kommer til sundhedscenter med en henvisning fra hendes læge Sundhedsvejleder har en samtale med borger Sundhedsvejleder (39.09) I have a referral from your doctor, and I can see that you are a diabetic. How are you? Borger (39.14) I think I m doing really well, but I can t seem to get started on exercising and training. Sundhedsvejleder (39.22) Then it s a good thing you re here, because that s one of the things we can help you with. Today we ll just talk, and I can tell you about what we can do and we ll plan a regime for you and talk about how you can use this place. Speak (39.37) Whether you have to pay for preventive courses and services depends on which municipality you live in. Make sure you enquire first. Sundhedsvejleder til kamera (39.51) Here at the center, we can help you deal with your lifestyle diseases. We offer physical training, dietary and cooking advice, classes about your disease and giving up smoking. Our sessions are tailored to the individual s daily life. Speak (40.07) You can also use the center if you re overweight, have unhealthy eating habits 17

18 or if you re tired and need to be more active. Sundhedsvejleder (40.17) We offer workouts where you can train twice a week with 10 or 12 other people. Diabetes is a chronic disease. The body s ability to absorb sugar in the blood is reduced. It can be hereditary, but your lifestyle is also a major factor. If you eat more healthily and take more regular exercise, you could notice a big difference. Mand køber cykel hos cykelhandler og begynder at motionere Pregnancy and Birth Gravide går tur med nyfødte babyer Gravid kvinde bliver undersøgt af jordemoder Sundhedsvejleder til kamera (40.46) Like diabetics, people with other lifestyle diseases can also come here. For example, people with high cholesterol or blood pressure or people who are overweight or smoke. (40.56) Changing your habits can seem impossible, but it s important to take baby steps, for example biking to work or walking instead of taking the bus. It s important to start with small changes, so you get positive results, and that will result in more energy so that you want to do more for yourself and for your health. Speak (41.40) To give newborn babies a good start in life, medical examinations and counselling are offered to pregnant women, parents, children and young people. If you are pregnant or want a pregnancy test, then contact your general practitioner. Your doctor will examine you and refer you to a midwife. Jordemoder (42.12) It s up to your navel. That s fine. How long has it been kicking? Gravid (42.20) For about two or three weeks. Speak (42.22) Your general practitioner and midwife will follow the baby s development and give advice on pregnancy and giving birth. Jordemoder (42.33) That corresponds really well to how far along you are. Speak (42.36) This is a planned procedure that everyone follows. Jordemoder (42.39) I ll listen to its heartbeat, Ann, to see how its doing. It s fine, a nice strong rhythm. The heartbeat is fine. Now I ll just put this here so you can listen to it. Gravid (42.57) Okay. Jordemoder (43.03) There. The rattling sound is because it s kicking. Speak (43.15) 18

19 There are free antenatal classes that prepare you and your partner for the birth and a new addition to your family. In Denmark, fathers-to-be are present during delivery and often attend the antenatal classes. Sundhedsplejerske besøger familie med nylig født baby (43.34) You can choose where you want to give birth: in a hospital, a clinic or at home. Speak (42.42) All new parents are visited by a health visitor. Sundhedsplejerske (43.50) 6.4. She is 6.4 now. Speak (43.55) The health visitor is a trained nurse and has a further education in health promotion and disease prevention for babies, schoolchildren, families and groups. The health visitor s job is to examine your child and give you help and guidance. Sundhedsplejerske (44.20) Op i min mors trygge hænder. I feel safe when I am with my mummy. Speak (44.26) The health visitor makes a few home visits during the baby s first year and helps you make a strong start. Sundhedsplejerske (44.36) I think it s okay if you dress her now. Speak (4.39) You can discuss issues that are important to you, whether they are of a practical nature like care and nutrition or about the well-being of the family in general. Sundhedsplejerske (44.52) In Danish we call it storkebid. That is a mark that will become less visible later on. When they are about Speak (45.01) This offer is free. Like adults, children have their own health insurance card, which you should take with you to your doctor s. Children and Health Far er med barn til 1 års undersøgelse hos lægen Speak (45.15) Before starting school and during the first five years of a child s life, the child is offered preventive physical check-ups at your general practitioner s. Læge (45.28) I m glad you could come today for a first-year check-up. Far (45.33) Yes. Læge (45.35) We ll measure and weigh him, and I d like to hear how things are going. Speak (45.40) 19

20 The doctor examines the child to see if he s developing properly: if he s growing, eating and thriving as he should. By going to these preventive checkups, you and your child can get to know and trust your doctor while the child is in good health and the child can get the necessary vaccines at the correct time. Læge (46.06) That sounds fine. Speak (46.10) Vaccinations prevent serious and contagious diseases. Getting your child vaccinated is recommended. Vaccinations have few or no side effects, and they re free. If a child isn t vaccinated in childhood, it can get a children s disease as an adult, and that can be very unpleasant. Børn leger i skoletiden Dreng til psykolog (46.36) While they re in school, children are called in to the school nurse. Here they are given information about health and education, their vision and sense of colour are tested, their hearing is tested, and they re weighed and measured. The nurse talks to them about their everyday life. Psykolog (47.02) OK, let s start with you writing your name here on this line. Speak (47.09) The school also has a school psychologist who can help children who aren t doing well at school or at home. Psykolog (47.17) I ll turn it around, so you can do it yourself. Speak (47.22) The school psychologist talks to the child, the parents and teachers about how the problems can be solved so the child will thrive again. The Dentist Barn blive undersøgt hos børnetandlægen Tandlæge (47.35) It s time for a check-up. First you have to wear a bib. Speak (47.41) To keep your teeth healthy throughout your life, it s important that they are checked early and regularly by a dentist. (47.54) Children are offered free dental care from birth to the age of 18. In most municipalities, children are called in for their first check-up between the ages of one and two. Tandlæge (48.09) Yes, 6+, 5, 4, +6 Speak (48.17) The dentist sees the child regularly and can give you advice on how to avoid cavities and the importance of not eating too much candy or sugar. Tandlæge (48.29) 20
