About Jesper Petersson

Background
Jesper Petersson is a Senior lecturer in Sociology and holds a Phd in Science and Technology Studies from the University of Gothenburg. He completed his doctoral thesis “Geographies of eHealth: Studies of Healthcare at a Distance” in 2014. The thesis examines the increasing use of information and communication technology (ICT) to deliver healthcare at a distance (e.g. telehealthcare, telemedicine and telecare, often grouped together under the umbrella label eHealth). The thesis theoretical framework builds upon a combination of Science and Technology Studies and Human Geography. Among other things the thesis investigates how eHealth is involved in attempts to establish new patient roles and tensions between eHealth as a medical instrument and eHealth as a political tool of governance. Particular attention is given to how healthcare at a distance has shifted from a focus on reaching out to underserved population (e.g. rural areas) towards an increased political emphasis on keeping the growing numbers of elderly and chronic care patients in their home environment and out of the traditional institutions and enclosures. Thus, nowadays solutions for healthcare at a distance are embedded in a politico-medical landscape where the use of digital medical instruments for self-care, embedded sensors for home monitoring and various other practices for the collection and automatic analysis of health related data are supposed to both promote popular emancipatory concepts such as patient empowerment and independent living for the elderly as well as fulfill demands for rationalization by technology.

In 2015 the thesis was included as course litterature at the master's progamme Welfare and Health, Malmö University.

The project is a part of Forte's first call within the framework of the 10-year long national research programme on working life research comissioned by the government.
