Last week Virginia Rosales Orquera passed a great milestone in the career of a doctoral student, she presented a conference paper during the 6th coopetition workshop in Umeå! The paper titled “TURF WARS: Understanding Internal Coopetition in the Emergency Department” and was co-authored by Mattias Jacobsson and Markus Hällgren. The paper was well received, and dealt with the simultaneous existence of competition and cooperation at an emergency department. While scary to an observer that at some point might become a patient, the practice was in abundance on a daily basis. One of the findings include four different practices that could happen at any point, between different people, and how these practices manifested themselves. Next step is to transform the conference paper to a journal paper.
