About me

  • I am an associate professor (docent) in health services research and I have a
    joint appointment as a senior lecturer at Karolinska Institutet and
    physiotherapist with specialist competence at the Karolinska University
    Hospital. I am adjunct professor at the University of Southern Denmark. I
    defended my thesis in 2008 titled: A two-year study of people with multiple
    sclerosis - Aspects of disability, perceived impact, needs and satisfaction
    with care [1]. Since then I have combined research and teaching. I am
    research group leader of the research team Neuroepidemiology and Health
    Services Research [2] and I have a close collaboration with the research
    team HELD [3].


  • My research is interdisciplinary and I have several ongoing interdisciplinary
    collaborations both nationally in different regions of Sweden and
    internationally in high-, low-, and middle income countries such as Denmark,
    USA and Uganda. My research is clinically based and in several projects I
    use co-creation/co-design with patients and healthcare providers in the
    development, evaluation and implementation of complex interventions. I
    collaborate with several research teams in studies of the effects of
    neurological disease on health, function, activity and participation in
    society. I study individuals' need for and satisfaction with health care
    interventions, as well as their utilization of these interventions. I also
    study how the patients' needs and concerns are captured by health care and
    the importance of person-centred rehabilitation.


  • I have experience in teaching and supervision at undergraduate, graduate and
    postgraduate level, mainly at the Physiotherapy program [1] and course leader
    for the freestanding course Physiotherapy in neurological disability [2].
