New forms of control and knowledge development in health care

Reference number
Coordinator Stockholms universitet - Psykologiska institutionen
Funding from Vinnova SEK 2 745 166
Project duration September 2008 - June 2011
Status Completed

Purpose and goal

Our proposed research project will investigate how the use of knowledge management and new structural solutions affect professional competence in health care.

Results and expected effects

As these new forms of management are directly aimed at medical practice, it seems important to highlight how these changes affect the conditions for developing professional competence and clinical research and development.

Approach and implementation

The study has a critical approach and will explore a wide range of possible consequences. The changes will be analyzed by means of structural organizational theory combined with discourse analysis and critical theory.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
