It is not just about choosing one's own course of treatment. In this essay, we look at participants' rights to influence and control what happens in workshops where clients and social and healthcare professionals collaborate to create the social and healthcare services that their municipality offers.

Our data demonstrates that professional agenda management in the face-to-face workshops entailed command over both proximal and distal activity. The experts in the online sessions appeared to have technological issues that briefly impeded the flow of dialogue.
