Revisiting Patient-Clinician Interaction in 2022: Challenges from the Field and Opportunities for Future Research
European Society for Socially Embedded Technologies (EUSSET)
The goal of this workshop is to revisit the concept of patient-clinician interaction, a classical concept of CSCW research in healthcare. While the CSCW community has been working on patient-clinician interaction for decades, the last years have seen a number of changes to care provision, motivated by the COVID-19 pandemic, the strong uptake of remote care technologies, or the introduction of patient-generated data technologies. Recent advancements in Artifcial Intelligence (AI) in healthcare also promise to impact patient-clinician interactions as we know it. For all these reasons, the workshop will engage in participatory discussions to take stock, analyse challenges from the feld, refect on opportunities for technologies, and craft future research agendas for CSCW research in healthcare.
