Project Overview

CHI+MED

research / computational linguistics / data / health

Working on the CHI+MED project, conducting linguistic analysis on incident report data to gather insights on how individuals report error within a medical context. By understanding the situations and environments in which medical devices are used, we hope to develop ways to support doctors, nurses and patients to avoid and recover from errors. In particular, we addressed how evaluative language and narrative point of view differed in reports of user error incidents compared to other types of incident.
