WS3 – Data-work in Healthcare: New roles, tasks and challenges
Monday, 28th of August, 2017
Room
12.4.12
Organisers: Claus Bossen (Aarhus University), Gunnar Ellingsen (Arctic University of Norway)
Overview: Increasingly, citizens and healthcare professionals are engaged in ‘data work’ when dealing with treatment and care for diseases. Citizens generate data on their own health situation, the healthcare sector promotes ‘patient reported outcome measures’ (PROM), and electronic healthcare records (EHR) enable the generation and accumulation of data upon healthcare services for the monitoring of costs, efficiency and quality. As such, new work ecologies are developing in healthcare that shift the divisions of work between citizens and healthcare professionals, as well as the content of the work involved in being ‘a patient’ or a healthcare professional including medical secretaries, assistants, nurses, and physicians. Facilitating development of health data practice and infrastructure is an area ripe for CSCW research. Critical topics include but are not limited to: re-purposing of clinical data for second order usages; politics of creating and using data; algorithmic authority of IIH and effects on the exercise of expertise and discretion of healthcare professions; new forms of healthcare data work, including new occupations and tasks; and data-driven accountability and management in healthcare.

WS6 – Creative and inventive methods in CSCW research – drawing from design techniques
Tuesday, 29th of August, 2017
Room
12.4.12
Organisers: Henry Mainsah (University of Warwick / Oslo School of Architecture and Design), Andrew Morrison (Oslo School of Architecture and Design)
Overview: This workshop explores how the methodological toolbox of CSCW research can be enriched by inventive and creative methods and techniques acquired from design and art. There are increasing calls by researchers within CSCW and other related disciplines to increase the repertoire of research methods used in studying cultural and technological contexts beyond the traditional interview and participant observation. Design offers a rich portfolio of methods and techniques, such as probes, prototypes, mapping, sketching, drawing and experiments. These methods and techniques offer creative ways of engaging with “users”, observing cultural contexts, as well as innovative forms of synthesis and analysis. In this workshop we will share experiences in the design, adaptation and use of design techniques as research methods for conducting research. We will also reflect on the theoretical and epistemological position of creative and inventive methods and how they shape knowledge about the worlds into which they are introduced.

WS7 – Nomadic Culture Beyond Work Practices
Tuesday, 29th of August, 2017
Room
12.4.17
Organisers: Chiara Rossitto (Stockholm University), Aparecido Fabiano Pinatti de Carvalho (University of Siegen), Luigina Ciolfi (Sheffield Hallam University), Airi Lampinen (Stockholm University), Breda Gray (University of Limerick)
Overview: In this one-day workshop, we seek to bring together CSCW scholars, designers and practitioners to explore analytical and design challenges inherent in the notion of “Nomadic Culture”. We will discuss how research on mobility contributes to the CSCW community, while highlighting unsolved problems, future challenges and research agendas. We see this workshop as an opportunity develop a more holistic perspective of nomadic culture, and to connect this scholarship to recent research on sharing and exchange platforms as sites of work.
