Health & Technology
Upcoming PhD project
The interdisciplinary PhD project must map possible reduction paths, identify options and barriers, and make recommendations for a better climate behaviour at the hospitals, so that the hospitals in this and other regions are capable of reducing both their resource consumption and the climate and environmental impact effectively.
A sociological/ anthropological view on patient-centered care
Concepts such as patient‐centered care, patient empowerment and patient participation have challenged the traditional understanding of what it means to be a patient and what role patients play in care pathways. Consequently, patientology is currently being reconceptualized through perspectives of health as individualized and privatized ‘capital’.
