The clinical research perspectives are mainly intervention studies and methodological studies. Methodologically I am thoroughly conversant with both quantitative, qualitative and psychometric analyses. My research interests are related to the perioperative context including anaesthetic nursing, pre-, intra- and postoperative care as well as postoperative recovery. My research focus on various interventions to improve the perioperative care of the surgical patient of all ages and thereby decrease postoperative symphtoms and discomfort and thereby increase patients’ safety and wellbeing. My research also includes to test different patient-reported-outcomes-measures (PROM) and to describe patients’ experiences of the pre-intra and postoperative care and recovery. I also develop and evaluate e-Health solutions to provide an ability for patients to get feedback about their health, symptom assessment, medication, recovery process, etc., in order to increase patient participation and safety.
