The first week of in-field clinical observations is over for Team Infection. After one week of being part of the day to day work at the Infectious Diseases clinic at Danderyds Sjukhus, we are closer to identifying the needs that the clinic has.
But this has not been without struggle, as it seems that our dive into the clinic got some of our team members sick. But, taking advantage of difficulty, we were able to observe the clinical pathway… from a patients’ point of view.
We also followed senior & junior doctors in their daily work development. From the inpatient to the outpatient wards, we have been learning how they integrate into the healthcare system, their procedures and techniques, and the relation with the patients. Doctors that work as consulting support for other wards and departments have also been followed.
We have also shadowed nurses and assistant nurses, witnessing the broad amount of care they deliver, as well as the extensive number of tasks they carry out.
We want to thank all these professionals for their time and effort.
All these observations will make us able to identify the needs that the department, and their members, have in the development of the daily work and care.
