Om mig

  • I am employed as an Assistant Professor at the Aging Research Center (ARC) at Karolinska Institutet. I am part of the research group “Social Gerontology” at the Aging Research Center and the research group “Equity and Health Policy” at the department of Global Public Health.

    My research is within the area of health services research and social gerontology, often with an equity perspective. 


  • I am the team leader of the research team Health literacy and Integrated care (Health literacy and integrated care (Janne Agerholm) | Karolinska Institutet (ki.se)). Our research focuses on how the health and social care system can meet the needs of an ageing population. We are studying equity in health and health care, the interaction between health and social care services and health literacy from an individual and organisational perspective.


  • Currently, I am the PI of a project on health literacy among the older population. This is a mixed method project investigating the level of health literacy among older people in Sweden and older peoples’ experiences of communicating with health care professionals and taking health related decisions. I recently finished a Forte Funded project about the effect of integrated care on the older population as well as comparative studies on health care utilisation in different Scandinavian countries, both projects were based on linked register data.


  • Further, I have been involved in research related to how the structure and quality of health and social care for older people with complex care needs can be improved both in relation to ensuring better coordination between different care levels and how to learn from the covid19 pandemic.





  • I have been involved in several different courses both as a lecturer, course
    designer, and course leader in both Sweden and Denmark. I have primarily been
    teaching students in Public Health Science, Nursing and Medicine. Currently I
    am involved as a course director in a doctoral course (Public Health
    Research- concepts and theories) and a master course (Introduction to Public
    Health Sciences) at the Department of Public Health.
