About me

I am a registered nurse and authorized sexologist (Specialist in Sex Education, Sexual Health Promoter [NACS]). Before I started as a lecturer, I have worked in emergency departments, clinical trials of HIV and hepatitis medicaitons as well as HIV/STI screening. I maintain a clinical contact and experience through my per diem work at the emergency department at Södersjukhuset. To me, it is important to stay up to date clinically, and to know about the everyday worklife for nursing colleagues.

My passion has from my undergraduate years been the health and care needs for sexual minority patients (LGBTQ). The last few years, my focus has particularly been on the older adult. Theoretically my work is influenced by critical theories (gender, queer and crip theories), particualrly how that interesects with gerontology.

Research description

My dissertation research is a randomized controlled trial (PhONEME) studying the effect of an app with patient-reported outcome measures (PROM). The reported measures are symptoms related to radiotherapy in patients treated for prostate cancer.

The first patients in the study were included the summer of 2015 and should include 150 patients.

Teaching portfolio

I teach at both undergraduate as well as at the post-graduate/specialist nursing programmes at the Division of Nursing. My teaching is primarily focused on reserch methods and scientific theory, human sexuality, and gerontology. I have experience from regular classroom lectures to distance learning, both with small as well as large groups. Additionally, I have experience from teaching at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), U.S.A.

In a collaboration between KI and the Student Union (MF), I participated in the review the nursing and medical students did of their programmes regarding equity. A report was published in Swedish: Vidgade perspektiv i utbildningen [Widened perspectives in the education].

The last couple of years I have published book chapters in Swedish textbooks about older gay men and HIV as well as queering caring moments.

As part of the public component of academic work, I lecture about health for LGBTQ individuals, aging, and mental health and sexuality.
