Barcamp 2019

tl;dr: FAQs

We participated in the Barcamp - art of solution on April 30, 2019. The bar camp was under the patronage of Manne Lucha, Minister for Social Affairs and Integration Baden-Württemberg. It was moderated by Team Scharfenberg. As discussed, we take up the issues discussed in our FAQs.

Citizen Science

Why is WiQQi a Citizen Science project?

WiQQi is a citizen science project in nursing. Citizen Science comes in different forms. WiQQi uses the entire spectrum. From collaboration (Citizen Science "light") to a comprehensive research approach and method development (Citizen Science "proper"). Mutual support is key: We have found that a tip that is passed on in a nutshell can save days or weeks of work. And we know that if we support each other in our work, we can do much more than alone.

How does WiQQi rate solutions?

WiQQi evaluates lighting solutions as such, but rather their suitability for use in individual cases.

There is no "good" or "bad" solution per se. - The decisive factor is whether a solution fits the problem-target-resource constellation. In the WiQQi approach, an assessment uses criteria to refer to a specific context. This means that assessments in WiQQi mediate between generally applicable rule knowledge (criteria) and situational case understanding (context-related assessment). (Continuing: "Doppelte Handlungslogik in der Pflege"). This means that ratings in WiQQi are always criteria-oriented and justified.

As part of ethical and professional reflection, WiQQi always asks why exactly one solution is spontaneously rated as "good" or "bad". From this, criteria can be derived that can be transferred to other cases as general rule knowledge.

Why and how does WiQQi fan out solutions?

Solutions are collaboratively fanned out to broaden your view.

WiQQi fans out different approaches to show the range of possible solutions. We are thus dealing with the problem of "functional fixation". Broadening approaches can mean that we are looking for approaches that deal with the causes of a problem - or approaches that take into account the effects.

  • Problem/objective: Sometimes we face the problem that the apple we want hangs too high in the tree.
    • Causal solutions would deal with eliminating the height difference. By climbing, a ladder, an arm extension or with long-term consequences by cutting down the tree.
    • Question symptomatic solutions, why we want to reach this apple. The focus can also be based on the fact that we saw the apple first. But the purpose is that we just want to satisfy hunger. In this case, it is worthwhile to see whether there are apples attainable height. Maybe there is an accessible apple hidden behind the leaves or on the floor?

WiQQi is looking for different solution options because this provides clarity about the problem and the goal. This broadens the view of ethical and professional reflection. Solution approaches should be as different as possible. The solutions within an approach should be similar:

  • Diversity: The full range of possible solutions can be compared - this makes fundamental questions visible.
  • Similarities: Similar solutions can be compared - detailed questions become visible.
  • Diversity of perspectives: Solutions can be conceived or tested in different contexts - this makes fundamental and detailed questions visible.

For all the benefits, fanning out also means more effort. So that the work remains manageable for the individual, we work together and always fall back on the work once done:

  • Collaboration: Someone always knows a good solution to a problem.
  • Sustainability: We collect existing solutions in the WiQQi database. The more solutions we have collected in the database, the faster the fan-out will work. In the database, all solutions are assigned to a problem-target-resource constellation, i.e. we can learn from other cases with similar problems, similar goals, or similar resources. Just like we do it in real life.

Important questions are:

  • Problem analysis: What are the experiences from other cases? What have we overlooked so far? Which questions are still open?
  • Clarification of objectives: Is the objective formulated in an understandable way? Can it be measured? What misunderstandings does our wording entail?
  • Research: Which search terms are still missing? Which could help?
  • Experience: Which solutions have already proven themselves in similar cases or have they failed? Which solutions could be transferred to the case to be solved? What do we have to pay attention to?
  • Criteria: Which decision-making criteria can be derived from existing experience? How are the criteria formulated to guide decisions?

Why are criteria so important in WiQQi?

Criteria bundle experience and mediate between need and solution.

Criteria are one way of deciding between different solution options. In WiQQi we use the following options to collect criteria:

  • One way to collect criteria is to compare similar solutions.
  • Another possibility is to compare different solutions.
  • There is also the possibility of using a solution in different contexts.

Criteria are both a result and an instrument for professional and ethical reflection. They mediate between the specific needs in individual cases and the multitude of possible solutions. They bundle the experience we have had as "ready-to-eat knowledge":

  • Criteria help to justify spontaneous evaluations: Why exactly was a solution "good" or "bad"? Because it was "too easy" or "too heavy".
  • Criteria help to describe the need more precisely in individual cases, because they describe requirements that a solution must meet. [e.g. Weight> 5kg]
  • Criteria help to evaluate solutions because they can be measured [e.g. 10kg]
  • Criteria combine a specific individual case with possible solutions: "Include all solutions that weigh > 5kg".
  • Criteria justify the decision: "We only used solutions that weigh > 5kg because all other solutions are too light."


What ist the lab in WiQQi?

Solutions are researched in the laboratory, requested for (free, permanent) sampling, tried out and prepared for the media. It aims to reduce implementation barriers and develop criteria.

Similar and different solutions are compared in the laboratory. This creates a basis of knowledge and experience. On this basis, criteria are formulated and concepts and methods are developed.
The laboratory is a protected test environment. Here the use of solutions is simulated and reality is thought ahead. In this way, we can relieve practice together. The tasks of the laboratory are:

  • Familiarization: We work into solutions centrally and adapt the solutions to the specific individual case that needs to be solved. So we are gaining initial experience.
  • Diversity of perspectives: The person who has worked in can present the solution (or solutions) to other people. These people benefit from the first experience - and can also contribute their perspective and experience.
  • Range and limits: The aim of the laboratory is to work out the range and limits of a solution.
  • Documentation: We particularly like to document via video - this makes knowledge easy to share.
  • Criteria: Particularly important findings are brought to the point in the form of criteria and discussed together.

The laboratory is currently based in the WiQQi studio. In the future there are further laboratory locations that are characterized by the fact that cases are systematically processed and organized there.

What ist the Citizens Laboratory in WiQQi?

After the laboratory phase, the sample solutions are packed in a box and sent to cooperating locations. Errors and gaps from the laboratory are recognized and findings confirmed and deepened. The citizens' laboratory aims to systematically and quickly obtain the assessment of 100 people.

The Citizens Laboratory is the critical authority for the laboratory. It stands for diversity of perspectives and large numbers of cases in the area. In the Citizens Laboratory, criteria and concepts are checked for comprehensibility and gaps. Missing solutions are supplemented cooperatively and collaboratively.
Practical evidence is created in the Citizens Laboratory because solutions are tested, applied and reflected on using a uniform method. Criteria can be supplemented and condensed from the impulsive assessment in the context of different life situations and biographies. Practice shows whether the experience from the laboratory really applies. It shows whether the range and the limits of a solution were correctly assessed. It shows where the reflection and the criteria-based justification for a needs-based solution were appropriate - and where it was wrong or left gaps.

  • Practical test: The Citizens Laboratory tests solutions in the concrete individual case of the initial situation.
  • Scaling: The Citizens Laboratory also tests solutions in other, similar cases.
  • Evaluation: The decision-making criteria can be used to evaluate the effectiveness of a solution - if not, the criterion can be evaluated, improved, supplemented or condensed.
  • Practical Evidence: The Citizens Laboratory is thus gaining practical experience - and helps us to create facts of assessment in addition to criteria as a reflection tool.

Citizens' laboratories form a dense network around and between the laboratory locations. Citizens' laboratories are characterized by the fact that they can plan solutions in a compact time and test solutions with a group of people.

What ist the real laboratory in WiQQi?

A solution is used permanently in the real laboratory and its long-term effects can be examined. By considering similar cases, the real laboratory depicts the diverse complexity of the individual case. It aims to generate extensive and long-term evidence.

In the interplay, the laboratory and the Citizens Laboratory complement each other. In the vision of WiQQi, they are brought together in real laboratories. The aim is to evaluate solutions in real situations in a methodically controlled and comprehensible manner. This enables impact measurement with large numbers.

In the laboratory and Citizens Laboratory, we can not only develop new knowledge together. By using the knowledge e.g. sharing via social media, we also have the opportunity to learn from other people who already have in-depth experience with a problem or with a solution. In the vision, we work in WiQQi so networked that we have direct and fast extensive experience that is methodically controlled and comprehensible, e.g .:

  • Frequency: How often does a problem occur?
  • Specification: What are the characteristics of a problem?
  • Solutions: Which solutions solve the problem?
  • Effects: What are the desired or undesirable effects of these solutions?

Reaching real laboratories systematically is currently still a visionary part of WiQQi.Real laboratories could be reached via the home care actors, counseling facilities or on their own via social media. Like all aspects of WiQQi, the desired and undesirable effects of this approach must be reflected on ethically and professionally (including legal dimensions).

Why does WiQQi use the term "Citizen Science"?

The term "Citizen Science" was suggested to us after three years of development in conversation about what we do. WiQQi uses the term to methodically locate itself as a project.

Citizen Science has the meaning of lay-science or non-institutional science. All translated terms have meanings because WiQQi primarily addresses professional care. Professional nurses are not laypeople - and are usually affiliated to institutions. And people in need of care and relatives are often experts on their own behalf. That is why we use the original term in WiQQi: Citizen Science.

  • With the term "Citizen Sicence" we want to open up space for misunderstandings and their clarification.
  • We do not want to reduce any misunderstandings that have been spoken to or expressed as well as unresolved.

What is the relationship between citizen science and institutional research?

WiQQi sees Citizen Science as independent, non-institutional, full-fledged research. This research is complementary to institutional research.

WiQQi is all-party and seeks the technically and ethically reflective, criteria-oriented discourse. Citizen Sicence is:

  • Independent: Citizen Science is independent of institutional research.
  • Complementary: WiQQi sees itself as a complementary and connecting element to institutional research.

Citizen science can be differentiated into two basic meanings (see Finke 2014, pp. 42-43, see Follett and Strezov 2015, p. 2):

  • Citizen Science light means a dependent form of science. In this model, institutional research assumes that it has to plan, evaluate and control the work of laypeople.
  • Citizen Science proper, on the other hand, is a self-sufficient form of science. It is firmly anchored in society. The layperson does not need control through institutional research.



WiQQi sees itself as a Citizen Science proper,
as self-sufficient. It is about gathering the knowledge and experience that are relevant to daily practice. We want to think about problems and solutions together. Participation in WiQQi is voluntary and ranges from a one-off brief reference (e.g. to a typing error) to the design of methods and projects.
The idea of WiQQi comes from practice. The development and design of WiQQi is determined by practice.

We have research institutes - why do we need Citizen Science?

Citizen Science complements institutional research. WiQQi aims for an immediate benefit for care. WiQQi deals with topics that research cannot address.

Finke (2014, p. 59; 2018, p. 32) uses, among other things, the metaphor of an apple tree to explain Citizen Science:

  • The apples stand for the knowledge we strive for. The fact that apples hang in different places says nothing about their quality. However, it lets you estimate how much effort it will take to harvest the apple. There are apples that can be reached from the ground. And there are apples that can only be reached with a ladder or with great effort.
  • The ladder stands for complicated scientific devices and methods, such as those used in institutional science (e.g. in basic research). Citizen Science, on the other hand, strives for simple methods. Citizen Science does not strive for the highest level of accuracy - just the precision and resilience required to master everyday life.

Following this metaphor, we take care of the obvious knowledge in WiQQi. The obvious thing can be invisible - until we become aware of it through a problem. We use this attention and make the obvious obvious through a variety of perspectives. Research in WiQQi begins when problems arise in a specific individual case. We have to deal with these problems in practice anyway - WiQQi offers a clear immediate benefit in the solution phase for little additional effort in the analysis phase:

  • WiQQi requires documentation of the problem as the basis for collaboration. In the short term, this means additional work.
  • However, this documentation leads to two immediate benefits:
    • On the one hand, the problem is clarified by the in-depth analysis and thus more easily solved.
    • On the other hand, the documented analysis enables the possibility of contributing other, possible solutions.
  • The second, similar case shows a sustainable benefit:
    • You can build on the previous research.
    • The previous search is updated in a new case.

What are the obvious findings WiQQi focuses on?

Findings are "obvious" when current problem awareness meets extensive experience. The obvious insights are what both parties learn when experienced and less experienced people share new questions.

For WiQQi, the obvious knowledge lies in the problems of the specific individual case. We make use of the fact that acute problem situations are perceived very clearly. We combine this clear perception with the distance that previous experiences can bring. In the dialogue of both parties, acute problems help to bundle and accentuate experiences. Because: the specific individual case confronts experiences with the specific context and the specific feedback of a person concerned. This creates criteria for a needs-based solution. WiQQi thus benefits both the person who is facing an acute problem - and the person who is supported by the feedback in bringing their knowledge to the point. We have found that this interplay also reduces the effect of team restraint (social loafing/Ringelmann effect).

  • Insights are obvious when problem awareness meets experience.
  • WiQQi collaboratively deals with problems and topics that are dealt with alone in many places without WiQQi.

From 2015 to 2019, we had the experience that experience in local networks can also be transferred from case to case. The concentration on the obvious relieves the concentration on the one hand and on the other hand repeatedly leads to synergies. Criteria for night light were developed based on the needs of various cases: A strong diffusion of the light may be desirable in order to avoid contrasts or reflections. These can lead to fears if misinterpreted. In contrast, strong contrasts are preferred in individual cases for orientation lights or light structures that address the balance. However, the night light should never dazzle. The color of the night light can also be reflected in front of various backgrounds: blue light is considered to be activating, green light to promote sleep, and red light is given night vision.

  • In the individual case, obvious insights and experiences support the reasoned and reflected decision in the next individual case.
  • Similar problems help to accentuate experience.




What is the relationship between citizen science and evidence-based action?

WiQQi is a practice-oriented tool that can be used to systematically create evidence and convert it into practical action. The approach of ready-to-eat knowledge supports evidence-based action in everyday life.

Citizen Science is anchored in the citizenship in the middle of everyday life and can directly observe what institutional science can only do with great effort. Institutional science, on the other hand, takes care of general statements and standards and conclusions, theories and theorems (see Finke 2018, p. 38). With the demand for "ready-to-eat knowledge", WiQQi bundles both internal and external evidence. For this purpose, criteria are being developed that mediate between general rule knowledge and hermeneutic case understanding in the sense of the "Doppelte Handlungslogik" of nursing and care.

  • WiQQi bundles individual experiences from individual cases in the form of criteria.
  • WiQQi breaks down general rule knowledge based on decision-making criteria.
  • With the decision whether and in what form a criterion is used in an individual case, WiQQi maps the "Doppelte Handlungslogik" of nursing and care.
  • This enables WiQQi to support evidence-based care.

Laborablauf

Laboratory request: What information does WiQQi need?

The type and scope of the information must be justified in consideration of the desired and undesirable effects.

The aim of the laboratory inquiry is to solve a problem together. This requires sharing information. A "too much" as well as a "too little" must be avoided for both the person seeking advice and the community in WiQQi. The "correct amount" of information therefore depends on the individual case.

  • Implicit knowledge is involved when it is difficult to do without gestures when describing a problem or when you have to repeatedly describe the spatial environment or other influences.

Information transfer: Which channel do I use to communicate with WiQQi?

The choice of communication channel depends on the content.

We offer the channels named on the contact page to exchange information. For us, the decision-making process was essentially based on the criteria of practicability and data protection (in different compositions). We look forward to further suggestions.

  • The decisive factor for the selection of the channel is what and how much should be communicated. The following criteria help with decision making:

Laboratory planning: How are the individual cases prioritized?

The prioritization for processing the laboratories is currently based on the date of receipt.

The aim of laboratory planning is to solve cases in a targeted and predictable manner. Priority can be given according to various criteria: urgency for those affected or carers, number of those affected, number of people who are committed to solving the problem, and how difficult it is to solve a problem.

  • Currently, few cases meet little time for processing. We work through one case at a time.
  • If it means less effort to answer a case immediately than to plan for later, we reserve the right to process the case immediately.

Laboratory and Citizens Laboratory

Cases are currently being processed in the WiQQi studio.

The laboratories are currently being processed on a voluntary basis along with the general development work in WiQQi with a scope of 1-3 days per week.

  • We are currently processing all cases from the WiQQi studio.

Step 1: problem analysis

Problems are the starting point - they illustrate the undesirable.

The aim of the problem analysis is to understand the problem and the associated goal in more detail:

  • Problems are specified: what exactly is the problem, the undesirable? How is it affected?
  • Goals are formulated in a measurable way: Which goal cannot be achieved by the problem? How do I know if I have achieved a goal?
  • To put it positively: From the first impulse that something undesirable should "no longer" be worked out, what exactly should be, or when and how the unwanted disappears.
  • Previous solution: How has the problem been dealt with so far? This gives an initial conclusion about the resources and may help others in a similar situation.

Practical example mixed-pickles jar: We were asked to find a solution for opening a cucumber jar: "It is too difficult".

  • Previous solution: Two people opened the jar together - one person holds the lid, the other the glass.
  • To put it positively: "I can't open it on my own", when asked ("What happens if you open it alone?") Becomes "The jar is slipping in my hand."
  • Problem specification: The mixed pickles jar requires more hand strength / grip to hold than can be applied with one hand alone.
  • Goal: I can open the mixed pickles jar on my own.

Step 2: research

WiQQi shares research results and experiences. In this way, the time for research can be used to update and correct results instead of collecting them twice.

The aim of the research is to diversify the variety of possible solution options. We use different search strategies, different search engines and databases. This process is time-consuming, which is why we document and share research results in WiQQi. This makes documentation and traceability easier. The research raises questions that we want to record as criteria in WiQQi and to answer with experience.

  • The basic idea of WiQQi is to "research" in practical experience. It starts with the solution used so far.

Practical example cucumber jar: In the past, the jar was opened by opening the jar with one hand and opening the lid with the other and turning it against each other.

  • Workaround: The existing solution was to open the cucumber jar with two people: Person 1 holds the jar with two hands, person 2 turns the lid with two hands. ⇒ The applied force and the applied friction have been increased - but also the number of people required and thus undesired dependency.
  • Other approaches:
    • Insert lever: An enlarged lever increases the existing force by turning back more way (e.g. belt wrench, adhesive tape)
    • Reduce effort: By balancing the pressure, the vacuum in the glass is released or reduced or lid friction is reduced, thereby reducing the force required (e.g. hot water application, breaking the vacuum or pressure equalization)
    • Increase friction: By drying / cleaning hands, rubber spacers etc., the friction between hand and glass is increased.
    • Release hand: Clamping and holding devices can also release a hand, so that only the lid or glass has to be held.

Step 3: Precise needs

The criteria from WiQQi should raise questions at the first interview.

We are currently experiencing that research also involves extensive detailed questions. These detailed questions arise from the experience that research brings with it. We can anticipate these questions if we involve an experienced person in the initial interview. The more experience we have bundled in WiQQi, the more inquiries we can anticipate from WiQQi.

  • The basic idea in WiQQi is to simplify advice for all parties by asking as many of the classic inquiries as possible during the initial interview.

Practical example of mixed pickles jar: by trying out the first solution, the first detail-questions have been answered.

  • Pliers solutions: We misunderstood the need at first. The pliers solutions made the requirement that the solution work with only one hand.

tep 4: testing

Affected and interested people evaluate solutions. Together we derive all-party criteria from this rating, which will guide the decision in the next consultation but also in the further research.

While research leads to knowledge through preliminary considerations, physical testing leads to experiences that are connected with further questions. We were able to achieve resounding success with the diversity of perspectives approach. Because different experiences, points of view, actions, but also misunderstandings lead to in-depth knowledge.

  • The basic idea in WiQQi is to gain experience in the laboratory, community laboratory and real laboratory.

Practical example of mixed pickles jar: Testing solutions in different settings led to increased interaction, clarity and goal-oriented knowledge.

  • Pliers solutions: We misunderstood the need at first. The pliers solutions made the requirement that the solution work with only one hand.
  • Base cabinet solution: A base cabinet solution led to the requirement that a tremor should not spill the contents. At the same time, awareness was raised of special needs for shoulders with restricted mobility.
    • At the same time, the functional prototype was developed. We were actually brought over a board with the request to attach the base cabinet solution to the board and to equip this board with a non-slip surface. This impulse for development aroused the memory of the final solution that was found in the follow-up research.
  • Battery: The maintenance effort (but also the volume) of a battery-operated solution led to the requirement of a battery-free solution.
  • Size of the solution: In practical handling, individual solutions were rated as too large for the personal context. In individual cases, however, this criterion was applied in a compromise-friendly manner.
  • Material: The material criterion was raised in the real laboratory. Individuals found it uncomfortable to have another plastic item in the kitchen.
  • Form factor: In the real laboratory, the special need to open oval buckle bottles was converted into the criterion of the form factor.

Result: Knowledge ready to eat

The result of the research is ready-to-eat knowledge in the form of a table that combines solutions and criteria. The knowledge can be updated, supplemented and expanded at any time.

As soon as a solution is found that is appropriate to the needs of the individual case, the further processing of the case is interrupted. The result - ready-to-eat knowledge - can be used in similar cases. The list of solutions can be supplemented and updated by additional research. New criteria can also be added through new cases. In this way, the knowledge in WiQQi can constantly expand and increase. Knowledge grows from case to case - from practical experience.

  • The basic idea in WiQQi is to constantly update and improve the solutions and criteria.
  • The knowledge in WiQQi is thus never conclusive or complete, but sufficient for the individual case.

Evidence durch systematische Evaluation

The evaluation in individual cases takes place immediately after the first application and in routine operation. The evaluation is already fully prepared by the laboratory process.

The target formulation can be used to systematically check whether the set goal is achieved in the real laboratory. Based on the reasoned decision, the success of the solution can also be inquired about in detail. The detailed questions are particularly interesting when the goal cannot be achieved. This makes it possible to differentiate whether the wrong approach was chosen, the solution does not fulfill its function, or whether previously neglected effects come into play.

  • Implementation: The evaluation during the first application helps clarify open questions and reduce undesirable effects.
  • Routine: The evaluation in routine operation examines the long-term effect of a solution and avoids falsifications that are given by the new.


Practical example of mixed pickles jar:

  • Has the goal been achieved? - Can both people open the cucumber jar independently?
    • Can the chosen solution be opened with one hand (in this specific case with two instead of four hands?)
    • Can the solution be used despite tremor?
