    epidemiology, and my research interests include long-term social and health
    care systems, informal caregiving and consequences of care provision on one's
    own health, and general implications of ageing populations on public health
    in Sweden and worldwide.

Research

  • The purpose of the my doctoral project is to provide evidence on the trends
    and magnitude of older people’s contribution to informal (unpaid)
    caregiving in recent years, and to deepen knowledge of their particular needs
    in order to avoid serious health consequences. I will use data from existing
    cohorts (such as the Swedish National Study on Aging and Care in
    Kungsholmen, SNAC-K) [1], as well as an /ad hoc/ survey of informal
    caregivers across Sweden, designed by the project team and carried out by
    Statistics Sweden [2].
    I am a member of the Swedish National Graduate School on Aging and Health
    (SWEAH). [3]
