Fredag, 22 november, 2019 - 14:00 to 16:00

Same-day discharge is a recent trend and a challenge for hospital managers both in Denmark and internationally. This dissertation investigates the intersection between time and organizing in a specific Cardiac Day Unit and shows how the tensions, that professionals and patients face, relate to different representations of time. The papers in the dissertation present how a multiplicity of temporal perspectives coexist in the cardiac Day Unit and affects day-to-day organizing, i.e. managing patient trajectories, conducting temporal work and utilizing temporal boundary objects.
