Supporting clinicians in infrastructuring

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


As part of a longitudinal research engagement with a Danish hospital, we currently investigate how the clinical staff incorporates into their practices electronic whiteboards (eWB) that have the potential to coordinate patient transfers between departments within the hospital. Drawing from the notion of infrastructuring, we carry out an infrastructural analysis of eWBs and approach our joint efforts as unfolding and continuing the con-figuration of participatory design activities. We identify a need for local support and novel competences among the clinicians in order for them to engage in infrastructuring, especially when it concerns interdepartmental coordination
