Presenting the DISA project at Vitalis 2017!

Earlier today, Ida and I presented the DISA project at Vitalis 2017. The project is dedicated to investigating the effects of digitization on nurses’ work environment. The outline of the project is described in the leaflet shown above, which can be downloaded here.

DISA will be ongoing for three years and comprises three different work packages, each with a slightly different focus. The poster shown below illustrates the structure of the DISA project and provides some more detail on the project’s core research questions.

We are altogether 7 researchers working on DISA under Åsa’s supervision. However, not all of us work on the same topics and with the same hospital departments. As such, Jonas and Christiane mainly work with the EPR online and the oncology department at the Uppsala University Hospital, while Lars, Ida, Gerolf, Minna and me primarily work with nurses’ digital work environment and two different hospital departments: the surgery department at the Uppsala University Hospital and the department for blood and tumor diseases at the Uppsala Children’s hospital.
