Special Track on "Supporting Collaboration in Healthcare"

Healthcare staff are notable in the amount of interaction and mobility exhibited in their work, which often involves synchronous (or asynchronous), coupled, communication and activity, and is sometimes conducted among a distributed team.  The fundamental importance of providing harmonised hospital, social care and community services has also become an identified goal in health and social care.  As well as providing novel approaches to support traditional methods of communication, a range of technologies offer the potential for individuals and groups to reconfigure their collaboration practices in new and useful ways.

This special track invites reports on significant unpublished work in the area of computer-support for co-operative work in healthcare,  with particular emphasis on design and technology applications for interaction among medical specialists, and between medical specialists and patients. Research on support for collaboration among medical, nursing, scientific, ancillary staff and patients is encouraged, including case studies or incident reports. 

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

	• Ward rounds
	• Team working
	• Meeting support
	• Consultations
	• Shift handover
	• Mobile Work
	• Teaching/Learning
	• Shared displays
	• Remote collaboration
	• Visual communication environments
	• Intense collaborative environments
	• Collaborative writing/note-taking
	• Carer - Patient collaboration
	• Computer support for co-operative healthcare work
