Abstract [en]

The ongoing digitalization of society is bringing working life and social life closer together, posing both challenges and opportunities with respect to communication, knowledge sharing and everyday learning. The overall purpose of this research is to contribute with knowledge of the role and potential of Information Technology (IT) in relation to learning in the working life for health professionals. The subject of this exploratory study is on the introduction of social technologies for internal communication, collaboration and knowledge sharing at work. The methodology is qualitative and the empirical setting is in the Swedish healthcare sector, involving emergency resident physicians and hospital management and administration. The findings suggest that the introduction of digital collaboration and networking sites have potential to increase collegial communication and contribute to knowledge sharing and learning. However, to achieve these positive effects, digital collaboration need to be integrated in daily practice and include new ways of working. This study also highlights that there is need for better tools and methods for continuous monitoring and development in this area in practical settings
