More happy news for the Decision Lab! Tobias Haeusermann has received the 2018 Mildred Blaxter New Writer Prize from the editorial board of Sociology of Health and Illness for his paper “Professionalised intimacy: how dementia care workers navigate between domestic intimacy and institutional detachment”! Toby’s paper examines strains in the professional roles of care workers in Germany’s first dementia village. Great to see more recognition for this very interesting work!
