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

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.
