The title of the seminar: “Workplace Innovation in Hospitals”
Date: Wednesday 6th of March 2019 at 12:15
Place: Sölvegatan, 16, MNO-huset, CIRCLE, M213
Abstract: Hospitals have long been seen as environments that receive innovations from the external environment at best, and at worst are highly resistant to change and innovation. A variety of explanations have been used to establish and explain this understanding, usually based on characteristics of hospitals as organisations or on their wider institutional setting. However, more recent research sees hospitals as dynamic actors in innovation networks and processes, as well as settings for innovation. This talk lays out some of the theoretical approaches to innovation in hospital settings, as well as providing recent empirical research findings from the QuInnE project, with a primary focus on Workplace Innovation (Oeij, Rus & Pot, eds, 2017 – Springer).
Practical: The seminar is held in CIRCLE Seminar Room, it is open for everyone and there is no need to register. In case you don’t have the access card to our building, please let us know (or simply ring us on the entrance doorbell).
