Publikation: Konferencebidrag uden forlag/tidsskriftPaper/skriftligt oplægForskningpeer review


The ethnographic study focuses the profession-oriented learning-context, following the case InBetween. InBetween is a collaboration project aimed at strengthens patient-centred, interprofessional skills among health professional students. The ethnographic aim is to explore the project in practice focusing the process of individual, interprofessional and (inter)organizational learning. The framework is a mixture of ethnographic methods.
In mapping out the field the challenges for the fieldwork are to follow the interprofessional teams of students in diverse settings: on hospital wards, at home with the patient, at the University College. Like island hopping the researcher almost jump from site to site, between islands of expertise and professions.
The paper reflects the challenges following teams of students across the healthcare- and education sectors. Through examples from the ongoing fieldwork the basic principles from George Marcus will be reflected and the implications of this multi-sited ethnography will be discussed.
