Work Domain Analysis of an Intensive Care Unit: a study on how digitalization affects nurses’ work

During the spring Sara Carlson, from the master program in Human-Computer Interaction at Uppsala University, will work on her master thesis about how changes in a work system due to digitalization can be modelled. She will conduct observations and interviews with nurses at an intensive care unit to investigate the effect of the new system that have been implemented. She will explore how these changes can be modelled in an Abstraction Hierarchy from the Cognitive Work Analysis framework, and compare her results to an analysis of the same intensive care unit made prior the system implementation.

We are looking forward to work with Sara and her interesting study, more updates will come!
