    During the years I have been teaching nursing students and specialist nursing students. Since 2019, I am manager for a course (7.5 credits) at Executive and Professional Education, KI. I am both course director and examinator for the course Tobacco prevention and tobacco cessation in health care 7.5 credits .
    My teaching areas are lifestyle habits, focusing particularly on smoking and nicotine cessation but also issues in nursing care, such as older adults and health prevention and promotion. Additionally, I also supervise in qualitative methods.
