Substudy 2 – Learning from the past. Differentiated practice through the years

The main focus of this substudy is the learning history method. Pieterbas Lalleman and Lisette Schoonhoven, in collaboration with PhD candidate Dieke Martini and public historian Hugo Schalkwijk, examine task differentiation in nursing care, both now and in the past. They map out important moments over the past 30 years and link these to current development requirements in the Dutch nursing profession. They will also record a learning history with respect to differentiated nursing practice in a number of hospitals. The researchers expect this to illustrate the various ideas, visions, successes and efforts of all those involved within these institutions. The conclusion of each study and the dissemination of the results will take the form of podcasts and a written learning history. The podcasts could serve as a basis for further talks within and outside the hospitals in order to facilitate learning about differentiated practice.
