Description

My research concerns in-depth explorations of ‘managing healthcare by numbers’. By applying a qualitative approach at a micro-level, I explore everyday work practices and interactions related to numbers within healthcare. Moreover, I trace and unpack particularly salient, potent and interesting numbers. My aim is to contribute with an increased understanding around some of the mysteries, tensions and paradoxes that pervades numbers in healthcare. In doing so, I may contribute with ideas for more meaningful ways of working with numbers that facilitates an increased quality of care.
