Nursing handovers

Nursing handovers ensure continuity of care in hospitals. My research examines the impact of uncertainty on the structure of communication during handovers, nurses' use of narratives to convey vivid information about care situations, and their strategies to manage perturbations during handovers.

 

 

E.g., Mayor, E., Bangerter A. & Aribot M. (2012). Task uncertainty and communication during nursing shift handovers. Journal of Advanced Nursing, 68, 1956–1966.

Stress interventions

 

Stress is a major contributor to ill health. My research examines how mindfulness allows alleviating the consequences of stress. 

 

E.g., Mayor, E. & Gamaiunova, L. (2015). Mobile device-based mindfulness intervention promotes emotional regulation during anticipatory stress. EAI Endorsed Transactions on Mobile Communication and Applications, 16, e1.

Collaboration

Collaboration is key in reaching mutual goals. My research examines how people coordinate when performing several collaborative tasks.

 

E.g., Mayor, E., & Bangerter, A. (2016) Flexible coordination of stationary and mobile conversations with gaze: Resource allocation among multiple joint activities. Frontiers in Psychology, 7:1582.

Lay explanations of societal issues

Lay explanations are causal factors of collective behaviourMy research examines lay explanations of societal issues, such as emergent infectious diseases, crowd outbreaks, or the pharmacological enhancement of performance.

E.g., Mayor, E., Eicher, V., Bangerter, A., Gilles, I., Clémence, A., & Green, E. G. T. (2013). Dynamic social representations of the 2009 H1N1 pandemic: shifting patterns of sense-making and blame. Public Understanding of Science, 22, 1011-1024.
