I work as senior lecturer at the Department of Health Care Sciences. The research I conduct at the Palliative Research Centre has its basis in clinical practice as a nurse in palliative care.
My research focuses mainly on interventions aiming to support family caregivers during palliative homecare. While caring for patients in the final stages of life I also meet their families, and in time my understanding of the complexity of their situation has increased. They are often indispensable caregivers, but also need support themselves. My main research questions focus on what kind of support needs family caregivers in different ages have, how these needs can be met, how support from health care providers can be designed, and the significance and effects of interventions. I also have a research interest in the long term significance and effects of support, and if it is relevant and what effects and influences it has on the family caregivers’ experiences on grief. Ongoing and future studies will also examine whether support to family caregivers has any significance and effects from the patient's perspective.
Within my research area I am continuously involved in projects that translate and validate scales to facilitate research concerning family caregivers’ experiences.
