Research

  • My research area is non-conveyance assessments in an Emergency Medical
    Service [EMS] context. Non-conveyance assessments have been described as
    complexed, challenging and risky for the ambulance clinicians [ACs] to
    perform. There is a growing body of research that recognises the importance
    and need of deepened knowledge regarding assessments of patients leading up
    to a non-conveyance decision in an EMS context.
    An EMS in transition in accordance with society requires alternative care
    pathways in relation to overcrowded emergency departments and growing demands
    on ambulance resource utilization. Non-conveyance is one of these alternative
    care pathways and has been identified as one of the most complex and
    challenging assessments that the ACs conduct. The knowledge gap regarding
    non-conveyance includes on the one hand quantitative parameters such as
    patient characteristics and outcomes that from a patient safety perspective
    is fundamental to gain further knowledge of and on the other hand knowledge
    of a more qualitative character such as patients’ and ACs’ lived
    experiences of the non-conveyance assessment situations.
    The overall aim with the PhD-project is to describe and analyse situations
    when patients are not conveyed by the ambulance to a healthcare facility.
    Furthermore, it is intended to explore the lived experiences by patients’
    and ACs’ of these situations.
    Study I and II have an epidemiological study design, thus focusing on patient
    outcome, patient safety and risk factors associated with non-conveyance.
    Study III and IV will be conducted in accordance with a phenomenological
    lifeworld research perspective and deep open-ended interviews with
    non-conveyed patients respectively ambulance clinicians will be performed.
