Ahus - Standardized work descriptions (completed)
This PhD project explores what happens to knowledge practices at a hospital, when they re-organize the nursing service's clinical procedures, by following the implementation and use of a new knowledge artifact.
The case study's research aim is tree-fold:
- consolidation of work descriptions - the local in-house knowledge repository of clinical procedures and the standardized descriptions of clinical procedures in PPS
- introduction and integration of the work descriptions in their clinical activity and electronic patient record
- evolving knowledge practice before, during and following transition to new building and re-engineered work flow
Theory and methods
Longitudinal case study, participant observation using video and audio recordings of nursing activities at the hospital, and stakeholder interviews.
