The Håkan Mogren Stipend
The Håkan Mogren Foundation was established in 2012. Its purpose is partly to promote education and research within the medical field and partly to promote the education and training of classical musicians, particularly singers.
Within the medical field, the purpose of the stipend is as follows: to provide the opportunity for well-qualified, scientifically competent and clinically active physicians to improve themselves professionally, or to carry out research in a particular field of interest to them. To be eligible for the stipend from The Håkan Mogren Foundation, candidates must have established a reputation for looking after their patients with empathy and passion, and they should also be currently active, or planning to be active, in disseminating knowledge through lectures or the supervision of others.
The award comprises a diploma and a personal prize to the winner of SEK 250,000.
Prize winner 2016 - Peter Berggren
Peter Berggren, district doctor in Storuman, is awarded the prize for his work that has created good conditions for continuity and the safety for patients in rural areas.
Peter Berggren's work has contributed towards brand new care models being devised using advanced remote technology. For example, patients can meet with a dietician or a CBT practitioner via video conferencing, and doctors can listen to a heartbeat or look down into a patient’s throat remotely thanks to various technological solutions. Many doctors and nurses have completed specialist training in this new way of working that Peter Berggren has helped to draw up. Experiences of remote care work have been shared with twin towns and care centres in Australia and Canada. Continuity and safety are the guiding principles in everything that is done.
