Titel / Title: Att agera som IT facilitator inom en Intensivvårdsavdelning
Översatt titel / Translated title: ACTING AS IT-FACILITATORS IN AN INTENSIVE CARE UNIT
Abstrakt Abstract:

The project takes place at the intensive care unit (ICU) in Malmö. It is a collaboration
project between Interactive Institute and Malmö Academic Hospital (MAS). Their
main interests are to explore and domesticate a learning and competence developing
process. The main question in this project is to understand how the design process can
support the effective implementation of a PDA information device for nurses. The
design process does not stop at the technical level. It continues by the involvement of
developers into nurses? technology learning process. We have developed a first
prototype from the design guidelines supplied by Erling Bjarki Björgvinsson and Per-Anders
Hillgren. This prototype has allowed the disposal of films done by nurses
themselves to other nurses concerning medical machineries. Those films are used by
nurses themselves to support the use of those machineries, fix them and teach other
nurses the functioning of those medical machineries in the ICU. We have carried on
research at ICU to understand what is required for nurses to know, the implication of
their work for the functioning of those machineries, and the workloads, constraints
and organisation. This has been done to see how to adapt the functioning of the PDA
devices to the real circumstances of their work. As the matter of fact, we have
indicated how IT developers have to work, as IT-facilitators in the use context if one
want to arrive to a successful IT design solution.

Populärvetenskaplig beskrivning / Popular science summary: Examensarbetet är ett samarbetsprojekt mellan Intensivvårdsenheten på Universitetssjukhuset MAS och Interactive Institute. Projektet undersöker hur en handdator med korta videofilmer, gjorda av kollegor, kan underlätta kunskapsöverföring mellan personal. Vår rapport beskriver en designprocess, från utveckling till domesticering.
