    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review


    As part of a longitudinal research engagement with a Danish hospital, we cur- rently investigate how the clinical staff incorporates into their practices electronic white- boards (eWB) that have the potential to coordinate patient transfers between depart- ments within the hospital. Drawing from the notion of infrastructuring, we carry out an in- frastructural analysis of eWBs and approach our joint efforts as unfolding and continuing the configuration of participatory design activities. We identify a need for local support and novel competences among the clinicians in order for them to engage in infrastructur- ing, especially when it concerns interdepartmental coordination.
