Forskningsbeskrivning

Mitt forskningsområde är perioperativ omvårdnad/vård  med fokus  framför allt inom postoperativ återhämtning.

 
RAPP 1.0 - Recovery Assessment by Phone Points. RAPP är en IT lösning där en applikation (app) installeras på patientens smartphone och där patienten dagligen besvarar hur han/hon återhämtar sig. Återhämtningen skattas på ett validerat instrument, svensk version av Quality of Recovery. Patienten kan också via sin app meddela om han/hon önskar få kontakt med en sjuksköterska. Clinicaltrials.gov NCT02492191

RAPP 2.0 - a digital solutions for equal access and quality of postoperative care Projektet är en fortsättning på RAPP 1.0 och syftar till att studera postoperativ återhämtning och oplanerade vårdkontakter mellan icke-svenska talande arabiska och somaliska patienter jämfört med svensktalande patienter vid användandet av RAPP samt att studera om det finns samband mellan e-hälsolitteracitet och postoperativ återhämtning och om det i så fall skiljer sig mellan de två grupperna.

SEHLO - Self-efficacy and health literacy impact on outcome after bariatric surgery.  Projektet syftar till att studera hälsolitteracitet, egenförmåga och registerdata från Scandinavian Obesity Surgery Registry (SOReg) i en grupp personer som opererats för överviktskirurgi. 

 CoMIT - Cognitive Measurement by IT . Projektet syftar till att utveckla och utvärdera digitala spel som mäter postoperativ kognition och studera om det finns några samband mellan postoperativ kognitiv dysfunktion och postoperativ återhämtning samt e-hälsolitteracitet.

StEP - Standardizing Endpoints in Perioperative Trials. Ett internationellt forskningssamarbete i syfte att ta fram standardiserade  endpoints efter anestesi.

Sjuksköterska inom postoperativ vård:  Kompetens och roll. Ett internationellt och nationellt forskningssamarbete i syfte att undersöka och jämföra roll och kompeten bland sjuksköterskor som arbetar på en postoperativ enhet, både ur ett nationellt så väl som ett internationellt perspektiv. ​
