BRENNAN healthsystems LAB

Anne Moen
Current Research Activities

I am a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Oslo, Oslo, Norway, and a visiting scholar at the University of Wisconsin – Madison. I am doing most of my work at InterMedia, University of Oslo, and I do some research in Brennan’s Health systems lab @ University of Wisconsin – Madison.

For more information about my post doctoral research, please visit: . REPARERE (learning REsources of PAtients and RElative during REcovery) is a prototype to

1)     demonstrate and suggest areas of use of ICT-based learning resources to assist the convalescent and family

2)      demonstrate use of the Open Source infrastructure available in InterMediaLab

3)      demonstrate universal accessibility features in web resource

This research interest relates to design of information and communication resources to assist patients and significant others in symptom management to promote self-care either during recovery from acute health care events or as active use of ICT to support and engage in the situation of chronic or disabling health conditions.

I am also interested in researching issues in the interplay between information systems like an EPR, the actual practices to be supported, representation of clinical work and ICT-users’ perspectives.

During my studies and work, I have chosen to and had to opportunity to participate in extensive international collaboration. The most recent experience was as a Fulbright Scholar, also the reason for the first visit to Brennan’s health systems lab. Exchange programs like the Fulbright program is an excellent way to learn about and share knowledge, experiences as well as cultural and social events. To my experience it is also an efficient way to promote international understanding, contribute to appreciation of different perspectives and develop new insights professionally as well as personally.
