About Doris Lydahl

Doris Lydahl currently holds a so called Flexit position, in a 3 year research project funded by The Swedish foundation for humanities and social sciences, together with the Gothenburg Region and the University of Gothenburg. Building on an ethnographic, practice-oriented and explorative case-study approach, the project investigates how elderly care personnel respond to and interact with welfare technology when it is introduced at their workplaces and what values on welfare and care that guides them. What values and expectations about welfare, care work and technology different groups of personnel voice when talking about welfare technologies? How do these values and expectations correspond with the use of the new technologies? And how is this reflected in resistance or acceptance, development and adaptation of the technologies among different groups of personnel?

Between February 2018 and May 2019, Doris Lydahl was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Tampere. As a post-doc she was part of a research project called "Geographies of home-based service interactions at the margins of welfare in Sweden and Finland", led by Professor Kirsi Juhila. This project focused on the turn towards home-based service interactions at the margins of welfare in Finland and Sweden from a spatial point of view: how homes and nearby communities as places of service interactions matter.


Doris Lydahl obtained her MA and BA degree in sociology at the University of Gothenburg. She defended her doctoral thesis in June 2017 at the Department of Sociology and Work Science, University of Gothenburg, with the compilation thesis Same and different? Perspectives on the Introduction of Person-Centred Care as Standard Healthcare.


In her PhD thesis Doris examined the complex relation between person-centred care, standardization and evidence-based medicine by studying the introduction of a particular model of person-centred care. Analysing interviews with researchers and healthcare professionals, and observations of professionals and patients where this model was introduced, she could conclude that the model was negotiated, managed and worked with in a variety of ways, and that it gave rise to tensions and assumptions to be tinkered with. Her research takes place in the intersection between STS, sociology and care science.

Doris was awarded The Torgny T. Segerstedt prize for best article in Sociologisk Forskning 2017 for her paper "Visible persons, invisible work?: Exploring articulation work in the implementation of person-centred care on a hospital ward".
