Seminar by Diane and Åsa on “The effects of digitalization on the work environment in health care”


When: the 4 of December, 15.00-16.00
Where: Boströmrummet, BMC, Uppsala University

Today, health care in Sweden is largely digitalized and many processes related to care and administration are performed using one or more computer systems. This digital work environment has had a major impact on the physical, mental, and social work environment in Swedish health care. Moreover, the transition to digital communication can change social patterns and power relations in depth.

Health Services Research has invited Åsa Cajander and Diane Golay from the Department of Information Technology (UU) who will present their research on the digital work environment (DISA).


Diane Golay is a doctoral student at the Department of Information Technology at Uppsala University. In the spring of 2019, she presented her licentiate thesis entitled: “An invisible burden: An experience-based approach to nurses’ daily work life with healthcare information technology”.

Åsa Cajander is professor at the Department of Information Technology at Uppsala University. She has studied occupational health and digital issues for 20 years, and is currently leading several research projects in the field.

When: 4 December, 15.00-16.00
