Interested in Patient Safety? Human factors? Healthcare Communications?

2nd International Incident Disclosure Conference York, England 12-13th May 2014 

Merchant Adventurers Hall, York, UK 

Incident disclosure is now a widely accepted and promoted principal in healthcare which may re-establish patients’ and relatives’ trust in the system, support clinical processes being made safer, and prevent organisations and individuals from entering into time-consuming complaints resolution and expensive legal processes. However the evidence suggests that disclosure conversations are often still limited and guarded.

Design as caring in an Urban World - Final Call for Papers: Deadline: February

Design as caring in an urban world: Royal Geographical Conference, London, Tuesday 26 to Friday 29 August 2014 

In his essay, “Building, Dwelling, Thinking”, Heidegger considers the interrelationships between care and design by arguing that we are only capable of building well when we know how to dwell, that is, cultivating attachments to our environments and, through this cultivation, giving and receiving care. Recent work in areas such as urban and cultural geographies, and science and technology studies, has further elaborated on this connection between care and design by exploring the affective and relational work that goes into shaping and repairing the fragile attachments between the human and non-human materials that compose the urban world. At the same time, the materiality of urban environments is often found to be inattentive to human difference and diversity, and rarely shaped by, or exposed to, a caring design ethic.

Autumn Conference of the Section Sociology of Medicine and Health of the German Sociological Association 03/04 October 2013 European University Institute, Florence, Italy


Call for Papers: Bias in Health Data

Public health research is based mainly on two different types of data: register data and survey data. Cases recorded in register data (such as hospital or insurance data) are the result of a selection process with several biases. For example, hospital data undergo several selection stages beginning with the definition of a mental or physical state such as being ill or dys- functional, the decision to use medical care, the subsequent diagnosis by a physician and the decision for or against a particular treatment and finally the choice for stationary versus ambulant treatment. Independently of medical or health issues, social mechanisms also bias the filtering process at each stage. This fact is of minor concern when using hospital data to describe the population of a hospital, however, the problems begin when data are used to estimate the prevalence of diseases depending, for instance, on gender, social class, or age: Gender is correlated with sensitivity to symptoms and the means of accessing medical care, while social class influences the conditions of health insurance and therefore also the cost of a particular treatment; older people are more likely to choose inpatient treatment since they may not be able to cope with the situation at home, which is also relevant for hospital data.
