ITHC2010 – socio-technical approaches; Aalborg,Denmark

The Fourth International Conference on IT in Health Care: Sociotechnical Approaches (ITHC2010) will be held at the University of Aalborg (Denmark) on 23 – 24 June, 2010. The theme of the conference is “From safe systems to patient safety” – it will address questions such as:

  • How are the mutual adaptations of technology and work practice during implementation reflected in design and redesign?
  • How are the successful implementations carried out as a process of organizational change?
  • How a sociotechnical understanding improves the design and implementation of safe systems and thus contributes to the agenda of patient safety?

The conference is hosted by the Virtual Centre for Health Informatics at Aalborg University. The event will have invited keynote speakers who will address several aspects of the conference theme. The conference will be preceded by a one-day doctoral workshop, where keynote speakers will be faculty.
