    Being first on the scene of an accident: experiences of "doing" prehospital emergency care2010In: Scandinavian Journal of Caring Sciences, ISSN 0283-9318, E-ISSN 1471-6712, Vol. 24, no 2, p. 266-273Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Prehospital emergency care includes the care and treatment of patients prior to them reaching hospital. This is generally a field for the ambulance services, but in many cases firemen or police can be the ones to provide the first responses. The aim of this study was to describe and understand experiences of being the first responder on the scene of an accident, as described by policemen, firemen and ambulance staff. A lifeworld perspective was used in four different traumatic situations from southern Sweden. The data consisted of 13 unstructured interviews with first responders. The phenomenological analysis showed that experiences of being the first responder on the scene of an accident is expectations of doing a systematic course of action, dressed in the role of a hero, and at the same time being genuine in an interpersonal encounter. This entails a continuous movement between ‘being’ and ‘doing’. It is not a question of either – or, instead everything is to be understood in relation to each other at the same time. Five constituents further described the variations of the phenomenon; a feeling of security in the uncertainty, a distanced closeness to the injured person, one moment in an eternity, cross-border cooperation within distinct borders and a need to make the implicit explicit. This finding highlights the importance of using policemen and firemen in doing life support measures while waiting for the ambulance staff, and would in turn increase the importance of the relationship between the different professionals on the scene of an accident.

    The purposes of interpersonal communication. A survey to find the most likely general reasons why people engage in communication2018In: Central European Journal of Communication, ISSN 1899-5101, Vol. 11, no 1, p. 25-38Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose underlying this paper is to find out what purposes/functions people from a diverse background assess to be more important and central to human interpersonal communication. A list of 17 possible purposes and functions of interpersonal communication was derived from a literature review and used in a survey study. The questionnaire was filled out by 313 participants (international students being in Sweden) from diverse cultural backgrounds. The findings from this study suggest that the participants acknowledge very central aspects of human life to be the reasonfor communicating. The most agreed upon reasons why we communicate is to share and enhance enjoyment (share positive emotions) and to create and strengthen social bonds (manage relationships).

    Prerequisites for sustainable care improvement using the reflective team as a work model2014In: International Journal of Qualitative Studies on Health and Well-being, ISSN 1748-2623, E-ISSN 1748-2631, Vol. 9, no 23934Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A work model for sustainable care improvement is enhanced by a professional approach in whichattitudes, opinions, and discussions are further developed into creative reflection. This requires not only a personal reflective attitude but also a collegial environment, interested in mutual support in morethorough reflection. Optimal conditions for such development occur when there is an organizational structure at the caring unit which makes it possible to intertwine these factors so that they become a natural part of the work climate.

    Cloudy talks: Exploring accounts about cloud computing2017Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this thesis is to discuss the character, purpose, and use of the language surrounding new technology, specifically cloud computing. The thesis is situated within library and information science. Its theoretical basis and argumentation builds upon notions articulated by Berger and Luckmann (1966), known as “the social construction of reality”, and upon conceptual metaphor theory developed by Lakoff and Johnson (2003). The thesis discusses the consequences of how cloud computing is explained and legitimised by various actors, such as cloud providers, computer scientists, IT professionals, business leaders, and strategic staff in organisations that had implemented cloud services. It builds on four articles that are based on diverse empirical materials and methods.

    A starting point is that IT has been talked about as neutral and unobtrusive. Instead, the results of this thesis show that accounts about IT hide its complexity both regarding its implementation and use. Talk about computing as a utility from the 1950s and forward was surprisingly precise in predictions concerning future IT. However, rather than accepting such accounts as communicating clear insights, it can be argued that this use of language led to the legitimation and institutionalisation of certain normative ways to talk about IT. The utility metaphor could, therefore, be seen as a powerful persuasive device, guiding changes in policies and investments. In today’s promulgation of cloud technologies by Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon, the four internet giants sometimes referred to as GAFA, it is possible to distinguish the extension of the utility metaphor into images of power, choice, and a transformed life, while complexity issues are considerably downplayed.

    Societies, organisations, and individuals all over the world are now, more than ever before, connected to the internet through various cloud technologies. Scrutinised in the thesis are accounts about Google Apps for Education (GAFE), a suite of cloud-based apps increasingly introduced in schools in Sweden and all over the globe. These cloud services are described as free and able to fulfil various user needs. This persuasive promulgation, together with various rhetorical strategies in their privacy policies, disguises the circumstance that Google exploits user information for its own business purposes by creating algorithmic identities of users based on individual web behaviour. With customers’ utilisation, cloud providers such as Google can act powerfully from a distance. As they develop remote control through their widespread cloud technology, they can affect individuals, businesses, and society at large. In this and other ways, IT will continue to reshape communication, the way people relate to each other, and to themselves.

    Reciprocal Adaptation and Emotion in Conflict Transformation2011Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The present paper explores reciprocal adaptation of emotion in conflict transformation and negotiation (Martinovski and Mao 2009, Martinovski 2010) by studying authentic discourse. It finds that reciprocal adaptation affects emotion in conflict transformation. It is most evident in empathy exchanges and realizes as direct and opposite reciprocity. The study concludes that conflict is a method through which participants learn how to enter into each other’s frame of reference.

    Comparing Human-to-Human and Human-to-AEA Communication in Service Encounters2013In: Journal of Business Communication, ISSN 0021-9436, E-ISSN 1552-4582, Vol. 50, no 1, p. 87-116Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    An increasing number of companies are introducing artificial agents as self-service tools on their websites, often motivated by the need to provide cost-efficient interaction solutions. These agents are designed to help customers and clients to conduct their business on the website. Their role on commercial websites is often to act as online sales/shopping assistants with the hope of replacing some of the interactions between customers and sales staff, thus supplementing or replacing human-to-human communication. However, research on artificial agents and comparisons with human-to-human communication, in particular, is still scarce. The purpose of this article is to explore the similarities and differences in communication between an artificial agent and customers compared with face-to-face communication between human service providers and customers. The method employed is a qualitative comparison of face-to-face human service provision in a travel agency setting and logs of interactions between customers and an artificial agent on an airline company website. The analysis is based on the theory of “activity-based communication analysis” and makes use of a framework of specific communication features provided by this theory. The article demonstrates a number of deficiencies in communication between artificial embodied agents and humans, suggesting that artificial embodied agents still lack many of the desirable communicative aspects of human-to-human service encounters.

    Designing to support situational awareness across distances: An example from a scientific collaboratory2004In: Information Processing & Management, Vol. 40, no 6, p. 989-Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    When collaborating individuals rely on situation awareness (the gathering, incorporation and utilization of environmental information) to help them combine their unique knowledge and skills and achieve their goals. When collaborating across distances, situation awareness is mediated by technology. There are few guidelines to help system analysts design systems or applications that support the creation and maintenance of situation awareness for teams or groups. We propose a framework to guide design decisions to enhance computer-mediated situation awareness during scientific research collaboration. The foundation for this framework is previous research in situation awareness and virtual reality, combined with our analysis of interviews and observations of collaborating scientists. The framework suggests that situation awareness is comprised of contextual, task and process, and socio-emotional information. Research in virtual reality systems suggests control, sensory, distraction and realism attributes of technology contribute to a sense of presence (Witmer & Singer, 1998). We suggest that consideration of these attributes with respect to contextual, task and process, and socio-emotional information provides insights to guide design decisions. We used the framework when designing a scientific collaboratory system. Results from a controlled experimental evaluation of the collaboratory system help illustrate the framework's utility.

    Interaction and use of speech-generating devices in the homes of children with autism spectrum disorders:- An analysis of conversational topics2009In: Journal of Special Education Technology, ISSN 0162-6434, Vol. 24, no 2Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This project investigated the communication of four children with autism spectrum disorders, who used a speech-generating device (SGD) in one or two selected activities in their home environment. The children were between five and seven years of age. The conversational topics introduced by the children and their parents were analyzed. The introduction of the SGD increased conversational interaction, as measured by topic length, for all children in five of the six activities studied. The analysis of topics showed that conversation within the “ongoing activity” increased and that the irrelevant speech used by the two more verbal children was reduced with access to the SGD.

    Speech-Generating Devices Used at Home by Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders: A Preliminary Assessment2009In: Focus on Autism and other developmental disabilities, ISSN 1088-3576, E-ISSN 1538-4829, Vol. 24, no 2, p. 104-114Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Three children diagnosed within the autism spectrum between the ages of 5 and 7 years at different stages of communication development were supplied with speech-generating devices (SGDs) in their homes. The parents were taught to introduce the SGDs into home routines and the effects were evaluated naturalistically. Videotapes recorded by the parents before and during SGD use were coded with respect to communication effectiveness, mode, role in turn taking, and engagement in activity. Findings varied among the children and activities, but an increased level of communication effectiveness was seen during SGD use for all children. Variations of outcome among the three children and factors of importance for effective SGD use in the homes of children with autism spectrum disorders are discussed.

    Att bygga broar för en hållbar framtid2009Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Implementeringsprocessen kring utbildning och undervisning för hållbar utveckling tenderar att fokusera på det naturvetenskapliga och samhällsvetenskapliga ämnesområdena och ofta särskilt uppmärksamma miljöperspektivet. Samtidigt anger lagstiftning och policydokument att undervisning för hållbar utveckling skall genomsyra all undervisning, vilket reser frågor om hur detta uppdrag skall tolkas och realiseras i skolämnet svenska. Föreliggande sektionsföredrag belyser och problematiserar frågorna om förankringen av hållbar utveckling inom ramarna för svenskämnet utifrån lagstiftning, policydokument, kursplaner och ämneskonceptioner. Vad menas med undervisning i och för hållbar utveckling inom svenskämnet och hur tolkar verksamma lärare i svenska detta uppdrag. Anförandet utgår ifrån en pågående 22 studie och bygger på intervjuer med verksamma lärare samt en enkätundersökning som fokuserar implementeringsprocessen utifrån ett såväl organisatoriskt som didaktiskt perspektiv.
