My research

Participation in everyday life in women and men in Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)

A qualitative study, where interviews were conducted with a number of individuals with RA to get a glimpse of how everyday life works with a chronic illness. This is a study that is part of a larger research context; ”Early Interventions in Rheumatoid Arthritis”(TIRA), in connection with the Department of Rheumatology, University Hospital in Linköping.

Study of multi-sick elderly people´s experiences of targeted primary care

The study of multi-sick elderly people's experiences of targeted primary care - opportunities and obstacles for influence and participation, is also a qualitative interview study. The focus is on how multi-sick elderly people experience that the coordination of care and nursing interventions from different actors that take place in the home, can contribute to opportunities in terms of influence and influence on how their own everyday life can be designed. The project is a sub-project within predictive and individualized care for the seriously ill elderly in primary care in Region Östergötland.
