Doris Lydahl awarded for best article


The Torgny T. Segerstedt prize for best article in Sociologisk Forskning 2017 is shared between Doris Lydahl, Gothenburg University, and Mehek Muftee, Stockholm University.

Lydahl was awarded the price for her paper on articulation work and invisible work in person-centred care. The paper builds on a small ethnographic study conducted at a ward in a Swedish hospital implementing person-centred care. Following a nurse, and her patient, through a ‘person-centred’ admission process and its subsequent procedures, Lydahl argues that person-centred care depends on nurses performing many new tasks which are rarely recognized and appreciated.
