Since autumn 2018 I am a PhD student at the Division of Occupational Therapy. My professional background is in physiotherapy, mainly in primary care but also in geriatrics. During my clinical practice, I experienced the complexity of healthcare professionals’ everyday work. This led me to a growing understanding of the importance - and difficulties - of a person-centered approach and interdisciplinary work. I am also interested in literature and creative writing, which I find relevant for the narrative aspects of medicine and healthcare.
The overall aim of my research project is to generate knowledge on the role and function of clinical storytelling as a tool in person-centered care for frail older persons.
