eHealth Revolution and Changing Work
The way we think about work, organize work and communicate with each other is changing rapidly. The Internet and personal technologies create new health and safety service cultures and platform economies. During this course we will study current trends, developments and future perspectives.
The main goal of the course is to:
1) introduce current state and trends of the digitilized working life
2) study novel use of digitilization in the OHS service provision
3) discuss ethics and equity in digital services.
- OHS practitioners and researchers
- Health services designers and researchers
- Researchers of working life
- Human resource experts
- Digital solutions experts
- PhD and university students
The course will consist of keynote speeches, workshops and participant presentations (optional).
We offer the possibility to present a poster of a topic of your interest during the course. The poster can be about you research or practical work you would like to share with others. The format of you poster is free and is not limited to a traditional wall poster. You might for example like to show you work with one or two slides or show an application. You will have 2-3 minutes to communicate your message to the other participants in an informal manner.

Work and work environments are getting more and more digitalized. Newest developments are the virtual communities and that machines are communicating with each other in virtual networks. Professionals in all sectors of work life use increasingly ITC-based tools and systems to organize and conduct their work, and also to communicate with each other and clients. Algorithms are being developed and decision support systems are coming to help every day work. The opportunity of a citizen to produce and use information relating to work health and safety and to obtain necessary information and services is essential. The citizen is no more a passive object of service but an active producer and utilizer of information for taking care of his own well-being and work ability.
