The research project is about platforms and apps (i.e. digital artifacts) in a) the care for elderly as well as b) apps, platforms and other digital artifacts in cancer aftercare. The research concerns the design of the digital artifacts for health care setting and how the design and use of such artifacts can trigger learning for the healthcare personnel as well as have impact on the quality of care. The research also takes the perspective of the elderly/patient, and discusses how the use of digital artifacts can affect the care recipients in their self-care process as a facilitator of empowerment.
