Electronic health records (eHR) for communicating and learning in multi-disciplinary health care teams

The esophageal perspective


This  interdisciplinary exchange between clinical and social sciences will address the challenges related to using electronic health records (eHR) when communicating and learning in a multi-disciplinary healthcare team. The four sessions are structured by using the esophageal perspective to derive leading questions, followed by answers provided by agentsin different social spaces, each one drawing on relevant scientific literature in his/her field. The aim is to create shared knowledge about the topic “electronic Health Record” amongst speakers and audience with different (scientific and work-related) background.
