Forskningsbeskrivning

Utgångspunkt i min forskning är den salutogena grundtanken som fokuserar hälsa, friskfaktorer och resurser samt subjektiva värderingar. Forskningen består av metodologiska och kliniska studier om patientrapporterade data såsom livskvalitet, välbefinnande, symtom och vårdtillfredsställelse i samband med olika sjukdomstillstånd. Det finns en mängd individuella faktorer som påverkar hur en person upplever sin situation i samband med sjukdom. En betydande faktor är individens förmåga att hantera påfrestande situationer, benämnt känsla av sammanhang (Kasam), vilket återspeglar individens förhållningssätt utifrån hur begripligt, hanterbart och meningsfullt livet ter sig. Kasam-formuläret ingår i många av mina studier av såväl metodologisk som kliniska karaktär. I ett flertal studier utvärderas effekten av en interaktiv IT-plattform för rapportering av symptom och besvär i realtid med tillgång till egenvårdsråd i grupper av patienter med olika cancerdiagnoser och hos äldre med hemsjukvård och på äldreboenden. Den tekniska plattformen är utvecklad i samarbete med ett svenskt hälso- och sjuvårdsföretag (Health Navigator). Projekten utgår från vår Participatory Care Model vilket innebär att patienternas perspektiv och preferenser blir ett naturligt inslag i den direkta vårdverksamheten. Detta medför ett paradigmskifte i hälso- och sjukvårdens organisation som kräver integration av personperspektiv och professionskunskap.
