The work reflects on therapeutic education taking place outside hospitals. The aim of the paper is to analyse the effects of a prolonged education encounter on therapeutic alliance. Drawing on an ethnographic research conducted in two diabetes camps for children and teenagers with Type 1 Diabetes the work focuses on four specific dimensions: camps as inter-organizational endeavours, the relation between the hospital and the camp, the ways trough which health professionals pursue their goals through peers’ relations, and the learning of doctors regarding their patients and the redefinition of patient-doctor relationship. Considering them as "extended clinical encounters", the paper shows how camps are foundational experiences in the redefinition of patient-doctor relationship.

Keywords: Multi-sited ethnography; extended clinical encounter; self-management; diabetes camp; diabetes; therapeutic education.
