Short description

Together with the emergency unit staff, the project aimed to investigate both those work processes that function well and those that might need development. At the end, the goal was to develop solutions in promoting interprofessional shared expertise in the emergency unit. In the investigation and development of team processes and interprofessional collaboration, issues such as division of work, organizing work practices, sharing expertise, learning and interaction were taken into account. Ethnography offered a methodological approach.
