Within infection care, sustainable development implies global considerations including the balancing of factors such as spread of disease, measures to mitigate transmission of resistant microorganisms, and management of medical resources. As a form of literacy, sustainability involves individual and collaborative processes of perspective-taking aimed at expressing significant global considerations in text and talk. This poster presents how perspective-taking is mediated and interactionally achieved with specific relevance for infection care nursing practices. To examine how sustainability literacy was initiated and worked with as an ongoing process, text-based supervision sessions were video-recorded. To explore the specific role of text-based supervision as a site for literacy development, specific sequences of textually mediated interaction were identified and analyzed to find how nurses and medical experts/teachers jointly related perspective-taking and textual positioning to particular literacy actions. Preliminary results show how close attention to precise linguistic details is critical for literacy development in complex societal areas.
