My research interest is on the exploration, evaluation and development of line manager’s implementation leadership, with focus on the health and social care setting. Concurrently, I am also working at the Implementation Unit at the Centre for Epidemiology and Community Medicine (CES), Stockholm County Council.

My research project focuses on the exploration, evaluation and development of line manager’s implementation leadership.
This involves exploring line manager’s role in implementing methods informed by best available evidence in the social and health care setting. I aim to further understand how managers themselves perceive and understand their role in implementing evidence-based practice (EBP), and what actions they take when implementing change. I am also investigating how the inner and outer context influences line manager’s abilities to effectively lead an implementation process.
In addition, I am examining how implementation-specific leadership can be measured and how leader behaviours can be trained when implementing change. This includes evaluating and studying what effects leadership training has on an implementation process as well as self-reported well-being and the psychosocial working environment.
I concurrently work at the Implementation Unit at the Centre for Epidemiology and Community Medicine (CES) at the Stockholm County Council, where I am involved in different projects concerning various aspects of leadership and implementation. For instance, we have developed and carried out an transformational leadership intervention to support primary care and hospital units in Stockholm County Council in leading implementation of change in practice. We are also currently investigating the relationship between leader behaviours of line managers and successful implementation within the health care setting.
