Since 2007, I have been working as a lecturer at the Department of Women's and Children's Health, and since 2014, I am a PhD student at the same department.
Within the framework as a lecturer I am deeply involved in the design of courses on advanced level. I have a broad spectrum of pedagogical skills and good knowledge about the strengths and weaknesses of the clinical and academy interactions. My professional background is as a specialist nurse in paediatric pain and pain-management and I have been working in specialized paediatric care at Astrid Lindgren Children's Hospital. My clinical field was primarily in neuropediatric and neurosurgery. I also have clinical experience from the Neuropathic Pain-Management Team at Spinalis Clinic. These experiences have given me a deep clinical knowledge in specialized paediatric care and a thorough knowledge in advanced nursing.
Since January 2018 I hold the following assignments at Dept WCH:
• Academic Chairman of the Syllabus Council WCH
• Member of the Education Board WCH
• Deputy member of the WCH Institute Council
