Ethics approval and consent to participate
: The planning on recruitment, data collection and analysis was based on an ethics committee consultation from an earlier study (Regional ethics review board of Linköping University, dnr 2014/391–31), which had the same study design and material (writing contest submissions). The stories had already been submitted as anonymous transcripts, e.g. names and places used had already been changed by the original authors. Thus, the study was exempted from requiring ethics approval under local guidelines according to the regional ethics review board of Linköping University.The principles of the declaration of Helsinki [CitationRef removed] were followed. Written consent to participate has been obtained from the patient authors.
