Forskningsbeskrivning

  • I have experience of conducting both quantitative and qualitative research. Currently I lead the work of a systematic review on risk factors for infection in older adults who receive home care. I also work on projects on health literacy, the de-institutionalisation of Swedish eldercare (the 'ageing in place' policy), and municipalities’ communication and response to Covid-19 in Stockholm. For my postdoctoral research project I examined how healthcare professionals perceive the hospital discharge process of older adults with complex needs. Data from Sweden, Denmark and Finland were compared to examine potential inequity in the care of these patients in Nordic countries. For my PhD I examined the relationship of sensory impairments with cardiovascular disease and mortality, disability and frailty in older age using data from two longitudinal cohort studies: the British Regional Heart Study and the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing. I have also been involved in the development and testing of a feasibility study of an home-based health promotion intervention for pre-frail older adults.

Undervisning

  • My main teaching areas are health promotion, disease prevention, and evaluation of health interventions. I lead the 10 hp/credit course Applied health promotion and prevention part of the Master programme in Public health. I also give lectures and facilitate seminars in health promotion and prevention at other graduate courses at KI. I am the main supervisor of two PhD candidates: Farzana Rahman whose project focuses on the contents and quality of health and social care for older adults, and Clara Brune who undertakes a project on moral distress in healthcare professionals in emergency departments. Most terms I also supervise a master/medical student in their degree project.
