In my research group we perform health care research in the two very closely related areas of; intercultural nursing and clinical ethics in childhood cancer care.
Intercultural nursing includes studies on experiences of healthcare staff, parents and interpreters in childhood cancer care. We also study communication over language barriers in childhood cancer care. Clinical ethics includes studies on ethics case reflections in the health care team as well as studies on the ethical climate and moral distress in childhood cancer care.
Ongoing research projects:
- Moral stress and its relationship to the ethical climate in pediatric cancer care
- Communication over language barriers – A national study in childhood cancer care
