Forskningsbeskrivning

My area of research, teaching and clinical practice is the promotion of evidence-based care for older adults to enhance their health and well-being. My research focuses on evidence-based care, particularly research utilization among nursing staff.

 

My PhD thesis “Evidence-Based Care of Older People - Utopia or Reality? Healthcare personnel’s perceptions of using research in their daily practice" reports the extent of research use among staff working in the care of older adults and various factors’ associations with research utilization.

 

After my thesis defense I was awarded a Canadian Institute of Health Research (CIHR) three-year post-doctoral fellowship at the Faculty of Nursing, University of Alberta and CapitalCare, Edmonton, Canada. Professor Carole Estabrooks, known internationally as a leader in knowledge translation, was my supervisor, and I participated in the research program Translating Research in Elder Care (www.trecresearch.ca). CapitalCare has 11 care centres and western Canada's only continuing care research unit. I led several nutritional research projects at one centre, collaborating with CapitalCare staff, that were widely disseminated and published.

 

My present research focuses on examining individual and organizational factors associated with research utilization and evidence-based care. The aim is to generate knowledge in order to develop interventions to support increased research use in practice and to evaluate these interventions from the older adults’ and staffs’ perspectives. I have been part of the KISAM project to develop a model for implementing the national guidelines for dementia care in a nursing home. We are now continue to develop this model for home care.

Pedagogiska meriter

I’m responsible for and an examiner for the Postgraduate Program in Specialist Nursing – Elderly Care. I also lecture in various courses in the undergraduate nursing program, and I’m responsible for the clinical education for students at the Department of Geriatric Medicine, Danderyds Hospital.

At the Department of Geriatric Medicine, Danderyds Hospital, I’m a member of the Research and Development Board. We have initiated a program to develop evidence-based clinical guidelines. At the Department, I have been responsible for a pedagogical development project and developed a model for patient centered and interprofessional care. In 2014 I received funding for develop, implement and evaluate a student training ward at one of the wards.

A pedagogical research project has been conducted with the aim to identify factors for enhancing the learning environment and evaluating the practicing of evidence-based practice for students studying geriatrics, their supervisors and staff, and managers.
