Sharing and developing practical knowing is a challenge in any organization, and intensive care units in hospitals are no exceptions in this regard.
Malmö University researchers initiated and facilitated a participatory design process around this challenge together with intensive care staff at Malmö University Hospital. The final solution was based on locally produced instruction videos to be viewed on PDAs in the immediate context of the work at hand.
Local video production proved to be meaningful and valuable enough for staff members to uphold the practice long after the research project was over, and for them to nominate the system to the 2004 UsersAward competition where it won the first prize.
